2. Create Import definition
3. Named mc_test_list_mapping
4. Map to a file on the FTP
5. Choose Subscriber List as a destination object
6. Choose the option to Map Ordinally

Type something into an ordinal field then delete it and you will be able to progress through the saving process.

Create a new import definition.

Utilize one of the other options for mapping such as manually mapping.
