Symptoms

When using File Based Data Import (FBDI) to Create/Update Supplier, the data is interfaced from a third party or legacy system and there is no way to identify if Supplier is for a new supplier creation or to update an existing supplier.
The Import 'Action' column in the Supplier Import File Based Data Import (FBDI) template cannot be left blank.  Is there any way to determine if data being sent in File Based Data Import (FBDI) is for Creation or Update?

Can Supplier Import File Based Data Import (FBDI) template determine the action to be taken on data records even if "Insert/Update" is not specified while uploading data?
