Imported data from FM11 to FM15, Contact ID missing

I am very new to FM and am learning it as I go. I am updating a database for a small organization, and I used a starter solution for event management, added a customized table and layout, then imported our contacts from our FM11 database, it did not import the Contact ID which is the match field across tables. It won't let me manually populate it. Anyone else get this? How did you finally get your data to populate? I can use new ID numbers different from the original DB, but still need to to reconcile contacts across tables. I can't debug my scripts until I can get the match fields working. Thank you!

 

My Contact ID match field in contacts is a number, Indexed, and I've tried several options - currently Auto-enter serial starting at the last assigned contact ID of 285 (there are 284 entries n the DB now). Validation allows user to override during data entry. But I can't go back and assign #1-284, it won't let me.
