When the user attempts to delete the Import Selections, the SQL server produces a Timeout  Error: Data could not be saved. Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding. 
 
This issue was caused a custom field type. They were able to resolve the issue by using the TRIM formula in Excel to strip spaces in the field then delete the column out that was causing the problem.
