The reason for Address Type not defined is that, there are duplicate Address instances existing in the migration file. There may be some entity where no Main Address or Bill-to Address is defined.


You may check the Addresses Sheet of the upload file. Remove the duplicate Addresses. Ensure the correct Address Type is defined and proceed with the migration activity.
