The Phone Address Import ID field creates Phone Type Table entries in 7.94

When importing phone number in Raiser's Edge version 7.94, users may use existing Import templates that include the Phone Address Import ID column.  If the user selects to Update existing records in a Constituent Import, and selects to Create new Table Entries, the Phone Address Import ID values will import into Raiser's Edge as phone type table entries.  This occurs without a validation exception, and with the Phone Address Import ID mapping to the correct Raiser's Edge field on the Fields tab in the Import file.
Download and install the latest patch, which contains all fixes from previous patches.  If you are running an older version, download and install the latest version and then the patch.

Alternative solution:

Remove the Phone Address Import ID (PhoneAddrImpID) Columns from the import file.

OR

Unmark Create New Table Entries when importing.
