Import Records doesn't import remaining data

This is for FMP 11. I'm importing from an Excel file. The first script step is Show All records. The import step uses the radio button next to "Update matching records in found set." I select the double arrow to match the auto-entered ContactID field. The box is checked next to "Add remaining data as new records." When the script runs, the matching records update, but the remaining records don't import. However they will import if I give them an ID. I don't want that because I want the IDs to be provided by FileMaker.


How can I get those extra records import without putting in a fake ID?
