Creating & Editing Import Profiles

When you come into the editing page of the Import Profile you will be presented with either a Blank form, if you are creating a new record:

Blank Import Profile

Or a populated form, if it's an existing record:

Existing Import Profile

You will notice that the fields that are displayed on the blank form differ from the populated record.
This is because some fields are dependent on the setup of the File Format that is being used.
