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?

Hi Juan, has there been any updates on this. In my case i'm using a signle select field and in the past i could copy and paste 100s of names and they would all be in there to select one item in the field. In the setup i would copy and paste all the possible selections into one window for the field. Now, as recent as late 202, you have to enter each name separately, which is not condusive to a software upgrade. If we had the capability in the past, i wonder why that was taken away and what is the solution to enter 100s of prospective answers into one field for single select. BTW, same isssue if i was todo multiple selections, have to enter each individual answer that i'm looking to be a choice, which is very inefficient. Any tips or tricks would be helpful and/or a platform solution or an excel import function to a specific field, all would be easy solutions.  thanks.
