Step 4. Type 2 in the First row field to start importing from the 2nd row because the first line in your CSV file will contain the field titles. Leave the Last row field empty if you want to import all the contacts from the file. If you want to import a specific number of rows, type the number of rows in the Last row field, for example 50. If, enter 2 in the First row field.

Click Next.

Step 5. Click a black down arrow in a field heading and select the appropriate field name from the menu.
