Hi Mariam,

That sounds like a bug. We’ll take a look.

This works perfectly when adding just one container to an archival object. However, when we try to add two top containers to one archival object by completing details in the instance 2 fields in the spreadsheet, the import creates two instances of the same Top Container (for the top container details in the field instance 2 rather than instance 1). The Top Container from the instance 1 field in the spreadsheet is created but is not attached to the Resource.
