    Thank you for the information. When reviewing the form again, the fields indicated are text fields and not date fields

    Since they are text fields, it is possible that it is trying to divide or subtract the date you are trying to import as it is done in excel.

    I suggest you remove these text fields and add the date fields. When importing the date, please verify the format our import app suggests.
