The records got imported with no errors but also didn't delete the desired record.


This is because TRUE is not a valid value for deleting records


Please use the value "Y" or 'y' for deleteRecord column instead of "TRUE". Then the record will be deleted.

Note: if you used Y for deleteRecord but it didn't update (and not errors were generated), then likely you are using an older version of an employee history record export and a more recent import the system IDs. Always make changes from a fresh export of employee history records, so that you're using the most updated system IDs.
