I am running 4.7.8 but cannot find the option to Import from CSV for multiple choice options under a custom field - is this possible?.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

It depends on what you're importing. You can find 'Import Contacts' and 'Import Activities' in the Contacts menu. 'Import Contributions' is found in the Contributions menu. 'Important Participants' in the Events menu.

You can specify the terms of your import on those screens.
