Import by name
Identifies items by the value of the Name column. If the target language for an item in the external .mdd file contains text and the corresponding cell in the active file is empty, the import copies the text to the cell in the active file.
Import by Name
If there are multiple items with the same name, only the final item in the .mdd file is updated. This is because the value of the Name column is not necessarily unique in a questionnaire, and a different translation might be required. If you know that the names are unique, you can use Autofill by Name to fill in the other cells.
