Hi Reddy,

Auto-number, Formula, and External ID fields will not show up in the list of available fields in the Data Loader for mapping. Since Auto-Number fields, Formula fields, and External ID fields are read-only fields that are not create-able or update-able.

For more information see  Auto-Number not available as external ID in Data Loader?

Note:
Any Fields which are not added to Page layout, those fields will not show up in Data Loader for mapping. Hence,all the fields must be added to any of the Page layout for Mapping.
Regards,
