Actually the issue is that one of the values in the email column was corrupt. After manually figuring out that the problem was with one value in the email column, I then needed to manually figure out which cell had the bad value. After I fixed the bad value the file imported fine. The enhancement would be for the error message to say "Corrupt Data In File" and then in the Error Log give, the value, row, column and/or any other information to fix the file. Currently, the error message ("Invalid File Format") leads one to believe the structure of the file is the problem.
