A record's Import ID is a unique number used to identify the record in the database. The Import ID is used when updating existing records through Import to tell which existing record to update with the new information.

To find the Import ID of a single record:

  1. Open the record.
  2. Select File, Properties from the menu bar. (In The Raiser's Edge 6 and Admissions and Registrar's Office 6, select Records, Display Statistics from the menu bar.)
  3. The Import ID is listed in the Import ID field on the Properties screen.

To find the Import ID number for multiple records:

Create an export including the Import ID column.
