Conditional Auto-Enter that doesn't update a field during import?

Post

     I'm looking for a way to conditionally prevent the auto-enter calculation to occur on a given field during record import.   I want the auto-enter calculation to occur during import on all fields except one.  So I can't simply uncheck the box during import that causes the auto-enter calculations to be performed.  Is there any way to conditionally set the auto-enter calculation. 

     The situation is that I have a field containing the accountname of the user who last updated a record.  (updated_by).  During this import I am logged in as the dba user and I don't want all of these records to be marked as last updated by the dba accountname.  I want that field to remain as it was when it was exported.

     The current auto-enter calculation on this field is simply :   Get( AccountName)

      

     Any ideas anyone?
