Tim AndrewsAdding alot of data

(Forgive me if I use any wrong terminology. I am still learning).

I have alot of data (hundreds of frame numbers and values) which I would like to load into AE to be used as keyframe data.
I can currently use a text editor to add the appropriate header and footer texts to my data, load the combined text into Windows clipbard; then paste the values into a Property for a Layer in the Timeline.

This is efficient for one set of data, but I want to load many (perhaps several dozen) such sets of data.

However, I see that this clipboard Pasteing system only permits a Paste to occur on multiple Properties in the same Layer.

My questions are:
1) Is there a better way of inporting such data?
2) Does AE allows Layers to add multiple User defined Properties?

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions of comments.
