Cause

  • Since performance is used as trend data and we are trying import in Personal information.
  • This is the reason we will get the error.

Resolution

The performance and potential fields in the personal information file are actually not recommended to be used and so the behaviour is not always as expected. They are not even defined on the Data model and so cannot be shown anywhere on the instance itself. If you are intending to use the performance and potential fields then It is recommended to use these fields present in the Trend Information import file.
