  6. Search for an account and open it

  12. Note: Number of records is 2
  13. Click on Export Data
  14. Go to the tab Monitor to download the export
  15. For first entry, address is set to FALSE. second entry, address is set to TRUE.


The Account Address has been created before with a different external key. When updating the address with the Upsert Mode, a deviating external key was used. If a deviating key is used, then a new entry for the Account Address will be created.


When using Upsert mode to update the data, you need to make sure that the external keys are the same as used during the original insert of the Account Address. You need to export the Account Address from the Export view to get the original external key.

It is recommended to update the Longitude and Latitude with the Update mode.
