Hi @WayneL747 , 

 

Certainly! Did you want to delete your entire contact base and upload just the CSV file? Or did you want to keep your existing contact base, and add the contacts in the CSV file to the current contact base?

 

For the former, you can delete all of your current contacts, and then upload the CSV file, so you have only the contacts that are in that new file. 

 

For the latter, you can upload the CSV file over the top of the contacts you already have, and it will update any existing contacts, add new ones, but not remove any of the others.
