Restricting Import of Records using Validation

Post

I am trying to selectively import records from a huge comma separated text database file.  I want to import only records that fall in a range of numbers.  If I use the Validation of Range, it will only ignore updating the field.  I want it to ignore the whole record.

 

Name of the field is MFR MDL CODE.  I want to import only those records that are in the range of 7104605...7104624.

 

If I understand it correctly, the only 2 cases where you can ignore the whole record on an Import, is with Not empty or Validation by Calculation.  Incidentally I am not using a script for this since the import file name changes every time.
