A few options here:

* Select the desired row, and from the FrameMaker menus, choose Table >
Convert Selected Rows > Body to Heading Rows.

* Instead of importing tables, convert the table to text, import the text,
convert the text back to table, specifying that there's a heading row.
(You do have to be careful that the target Frame table style has a heading
row.)

* Use the nifty TableCleaner plugin,
http://www.frameexpert.com/plugins/tablecleaner/, to deal with all kinds of
formatting for table conversions. I didn't find it exactly intuitive, but
when I read the directions, they were right :-).
