Tip #726: Dude, where is my option to export for update?


I recently noticed that in version 2016, the option to export records for update (available in version 2015) has vanished from the Export To Excel dialog.

This SDK article describe the Import process as if this option is still available.

Can anyone clarify this feature status? Is there any other method to update existing records via the Import Wizard?
