csv row/records eliminated

Can I get some help please to a seemingly simple problem. I have a excel/csv file. The data is in ROWS and Column format. I want to insert into mysql using the below sql code. It works but.....

The PROBLEM IS: it is broken up into rows/records in mysql, I need it to ignore the returns or breaks or whatever tells it to go to another row and continue to insert the data into the fields in one record. Did I explain that right?

LOAD DATA INFILE 'filename.csv'
INTO TABLE tablename
(`1`, `2`, `3`, `4`, `5`, `6`)

I dont know what I am doing so I may not have explained it properly please ask any questions that you may be confused about.
