Import custom fields in Wrike through Excel

I have created a checklist for all of the documents and steps to incorporate a company (my plan is to create separate checklists for other steps like a dissolution, amalgamation, continuance etc).  A project may have a number of steps that includes the incorporation.  My plan is to export the checklist to excel and then to import it into the particular project that has an incorporation step.  The process appears to work, however in the checklist I have a text field called step.  I also have a step text field in the project.  Easier for me to insert the step description in excel through a copy (enter in the first cell in the column and copy it and paste it in all of the other cells in that column).  However, when I import the excel file into the project the step field in the project is empty so I have to do it manually (tedious if there are 100s of items).  Why can't I do this through Excel?
