In Imports, a key field gets matched against existing records. If key is found then record gets modified. Otherwise, a new record with the key is appended. A key is a unique column in a table. For Inventory Item Master is is the Item ID. For orders, it is an order number. If key is found, all fields supplied in a current import will be modified. For the orders, only headers are modified, but line items are deleted and re-imported from scratch. It means the for orders, line items must contain all information, but not just a few columns that we need to adjust. Also orders marked as shipped cannot be overwritten.
