This is probably a trivial question, but I have no idea how to access the data
after executing this.importTextData.
The contents of myData.txt are
bookmark0 bookmark1 bookmark2 Introduction Chapter 1 Chapter 2
How do I retrieve the value of "bookmark0" for example?
Thank you in advance.

I was expecting that the importTextData() function would import data into a string array or the like. If I have to create fields for every pieces of text I'm trying to import in advance, this is not a viable solution. I'll look for other ways to import text. Thanks.
No, it imports it directly into the fields. If you want to read the text as is use readFileIntoStream, and then convert it from a Stream to a string, an split it by line and further by item (depending on the delimiter used in your file).
Thank you for the information. Very helpful.
