Importing match existing records math...

Post

I had a database open with 563 records found out of 60,000.

I imported a spreadsheet with 28,000 or so rows and told it to update matching records in found set based on certain criteria.

In the "updating records..." progress dialog that appeared, the number was in the 50,000-60,000 range for much of the progress.

When the import was complete, it said 1087 records were updated.

How does this happen if I only had 563 records open? I've verified that there are no two entries in the imported dataset that have the same value for the three matching fields. I worry that I might have overwritten more entries than I had intended.

Am I misinterpreting the "records updated" message?
