Grid Field Import Error (creates rows when it shouldn’t)

When importing into a channel entry with Grid fields there is no option to ‘Do nothing’

At present the import either:

1. Deletes all grid rows
2. Appends rows onto existing
3. Attempts to update a row if a grid field matches

If you just want to update an existing channel entry which has a grid field but no action is needed on that grid field the import always adds a row to the grid with no data in it.

This causes problems because templates often check for grid rows and output content if a row exists - DG creates an empty row which it shouldn’t

An option is needed for ‘Do nothing to this grid field’

This is the case on other custom fields where if no value is submitted then no action is taken.

I am having this exact same issue.

I do not want any Grid rows created when importing channel data and an empty row is being created. This breaks the templating on the site. Someone has to go through each channel item and delete the empty row to fix the templating, which could be many rows.

There is a stack question with more details here.
