Import multiple values in to Component field

I have an import file that has two columns, each value from these will be a component in the Jira issue

I am concatenating the values in Excel , separated by comma, but upon import I get an error saying that  the component does not exist because it tries to import the whole value i..e Action,Map Update instead of the two values
