"An error occurred during the data import. (MKT-285235) Details: This error occurred while importing data: The length of the attribute ActivityDesc value must be less than 4,000 characters. (MKT-285230) Cause: The user provided a value that exceeds the maximum length of the target attribute. Action: The value must be truncated so that it does not exceed the maximum length. for ActivityDesc."

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Manage File Import Activities
2. Create a new import and select object Appointment;
3. Select a csv with appointment description > 4000 chars;
4. Create the mapping;
5. Submit the import.

The issue has the following business impact:
For importing the Appointment data, inside the legacy system the appointment description size more than 30000 chars, where as in Sales Cloud the maximum size allowed is 4000 chars.
