By setting your scroll bars to be always shown in your MacOS general settings, you are able to scroll horizontally in the text import wizard.
We will prioritize this issue accordingly with other issues based on the votes and interest that we see here.

Scroll bars always shown is just a workaround to Microsoft's bug in Excel. You can't blame Apple when you have implemented the scrolling view incorrectly. Scrolling in MacOS always works also without the scrollbars. Just swipe with the TouchPad. For some reason Microsoft has decided to disabled horizontal scrolling in the import. That's the real reason and users should not be instructed to change the scroll bar functionality in all apps just because of an Excel bug, which Microsoft arrogantly refuses to fix. All other developer are able to implement a properly working scrollviews, but not the big and great Microsoft.
