  • not really. when you upload an excel you can map the excel field to the crm field but it does not allow you to put  a condition or business rule. there is no simple solution. you can create a custom code like a console application using the sdk or try to use some data migration tool that would allow to place a condition.

    there will be none or very few free tools out there. like this is not release but you can get the source code https://integrationtoolfordynamicscrm.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest

    A console application may take you 1 or 2 hours to put together

    I Hope I could help. If I have answered please mark as 'Answer'. If was just helpful, please vote. Thanks and happy coding! Bruno Lucas, http://dynamicday.wordpress.com/

  • To import the excel records, You can use the CRM Out-of-Box Data Import Feature.

    You can check the  email id and customer type fields in the Real-Time Workflow whether its filled in the excel file.

    If it's not filled, you can cancel the workflow job.
