Hello Gourav,

In version 6.0.1 there is a new feature that allows you to update existing requirements that it can find by ID.  Here is a description of the feature on the new and noteworthy page.
Rational DOORS Next Generation 6.0.1 New & Noteworthy: CSV file exporting and importing

There is an issue with updating enumerated values.  Here is a link to the work item.

I hope this helps.

To expand on this answer a little bit, prior to 6.0.1, "round trips" of data in RM via CSV was not supported.

I bet the original/updated CSV file does not have the "id" field, so extra care should be taken when trying to update the requirement artifacts. Basically, the IDs of the imported requirements need to be extracted and merged into the CSV, in order to do a proper "update".
