Symptoms

A UDSElement Net-Change sends empty updates for all the records instead of just for records that have changed.

Looking in TCC console, it is seen that only the lookup key is passed in the Request xml.  For example:
---------------------
<UDSElement-update identifier="UDSElement|update|999-C999,zzBizCust">
<UDSElement>
<Code searchType="search" searchValue="999-C999"/>
<UserDefinedSelection>
<UserDefinedSelection>
<Code searchType="search" searchTarget=".." searchValue="zzBizCust"/>
</UserDefinedSelection>
</UserDefinedSelection>
</UDSElement>
</UDSElement-update>
---------------------

Changes

The net-change import uses the same field twice.  One instance of the UserDefinedSelection,Code targets UserDefinedSelection and the other instance targets UDSElement.

The script with the problem has the instance that targets UDSElement before the instance of the field that targets UserDefinedSelection.
