Hello Lakshmi,

Are the attributes multi-value enumerated data type? 
If so, there is a known issue in 6.0.1:
CSV Round-trip does not handle enumerated values

It is fixed in 6.0.2.

The problem happens if the enumerated value is empty when you try to import CSV to update it.  In other words, if the value is set in the attribute, the import will successfully update the value.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,

 hello Diane

Thanks a lot for the answer. Indeed this might be the problem I am facing. But the thing is, the message I receive after performing the import is that the import is successful. I do not get any error regarding the same.

Thanks and Regards

Just in case you are using an older version, have you seen this wiki:importing and exporting data using CSV files
