reopening an issue - auto-enter serial for a recurring excel import

     I am reposting because I believe that I was too quick to apply the forum checkmark (answered) on my previous post and I can't see how to undo that.

     In quick summary, I'm trying to auto-serial a recurring excel import.  It works, but I need the serials to "stick" once they've been assigned the first time.  Those serials = product item numbers and should not change after each import.  Is there a way to assign a serial on import and then leave those fixed and only assign new serials to new excel rows on the next import?  Thanks for considering.
