If you import data to a blank form, we recommend making it your first action.

If you import data to a partially completed form, there is a risk of overwriting fields already completed.

You may need to edit data that has been imported, as it will include text from all fields, such as the unique locked identifier number.

Open the form that will serve as the target for your data
