Save a match field in import script step

Post

     I'm having trouble writing a script to import records from a table in an external Filemaker 12 file.  I want to update matching records and add remaining records as new records.  I can save all of the intended settings but when I run the script allowing it to display a dialogue box, the match field is not selected.  It just appears with the single arrow to "import" the field, rather than the double arrow that indicates that records should be matched based on that field.

     When I open the script to edit it, the double arrow appears on the intended match field.  When I run the script the match field is not indicated.

     Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
