Problem closing cases via Excel import

I tried to close cases via the Excel import tool, following these instructions (Closing Cases - CommCare Public - Dimagi Confluence). However, it seems that this only added a case property called ‘Close’ rather than actually closing cases.

What did I do wrong? I would prefer not to have to close these 220 cases individually.

Thanks,
Sara

Hi Sara,

Did you see this prompt when you did the import? Did you leave the box (create a new property intended...) checked on the right or not?

Hmm, no, it asked something like this: Did you mean close, FOSA? (ie it referenced another property)

Strange, were you maybe in insert/update mode instead of just update mode? insert/update mode is triggered when you have the "Create new records if...." checkbox checked

Nope, I didn't tick that box b/c i knew i didn't want to create new records. But, I think I just realized what I did wrong - I used 'Close' rather than 'close'. I am now seeing that text that says it will close the cases. Thank you for your help!
