What you're looking for is the "unicsv" format. You might want to look it up in the manual.
"Unicsv" looks for the structure in the first line of the file, so you only need to change your file to look like
69.652, -78.487, 1, AA-53632
68.672, -78.981, 2, AA-53633
That should do the trick. Hope I could help!

Hey Mark, someone here helped me when I was learning it and suggested, for my own sanity, to convert the unicsv file to soemthing open like a gpx file first try to see what happens in the output.
The other suggestion I got was to take my unicsv files and send it out as a unicsv file to a different place to see how the conversion process handles the data.
