If you didn’t check the Updated an existing Project with the new data” check box and there was a record with the same existing data then it will ignore importing it and will be showing you errors regarding this record.
  2. The Corresponding Field on File” column: Each drop-down menu on this column shows all the column headers on your file. Please select the equivalent column on your file for each system column (only system fields with *” are required to have an equivalent selected field).
