Data Import - Overwrite Not Working

I am creating a data import and the option to select Overwrite in the Import Behavior does not work. I have tried 5 times and the result is always the same. The option will not be chosen and my data keeps being summed. Can anyone tell me why this may be?

Data Import - Overwrite Not Working

It's hard to answer this one without seeing the data (not suggesting that you send or post).  That is, the summation method is default and the idea is that you just import any changes. 


If you have any issues with your date field, this can cause problems.  Are you getting any rejects on import?   Word of advice to anyone doing data import: keep your data far away from Excel.  If you need to edit, use notepad or a text editor like Sublime.
