I've never heard about such need as embedding text files in the swf. Can you maybe explain to us what is the purpose of this so we could help in other way?

No, but you can create a Text Object that can contain a text file, then
read/manipulate that,  It all depends on how complicated your text file
is.  You can usually throw in basic control codes, such as in CR/LF, or
else go for supported HTML tags.
