Why Account.AccountSource Not Available for Use in Data Loader?

I use AccountSource to identify the source of account coming from (manual, web, hoovers, website, google, etc).  I am working to use Data Loader to update existing accounts with general information, and want to populate value into AccountSource field.  I could not find AccountSource as an available option to map data from my spreadsheet.

 

Does anyone know why?  I have System Administrator profile.  I check security settings and I have both read and edit.

Hi,

 

you have created AccountSource field as a custom formula field which values coming from (manual, web, hoovers, website, google, etc)and that's the reason is that you will not see AccountSource as an available option to map data from my spreadsheet.

 

Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.
