Hi All,
I want to do some customization in duplicate check while importing the contacts.

My question is that, I want to know the SugarCRM Default logic of
Duplicate Check (while data import) what is the condition they are using
  while checking duplicate...

CASE 1: FIRST NAME OR LAST NAME OR EMAIL ADDRESS

OR

CASE 2: FIRST NAME AND LAST NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS

If CASE 1 is correct then I want to change the logic into the CASE 2:

If CASE 2 is correct then could any one tell me where this code resides in sugar directory....

Let us suppose if we have one csv file for importing contacts, the value in the files are like below,

First Name       Last Name     Eamil Id
Sumit               Sahay             sumitsahay.mca@gmail.com
Sumit               Sahay             sumitsahay.mca@gmail.com
Sumit               Sahay

So, I want to create 2 Contacts from the above data, as first name and last name are same for 3rd number record in csv file but not the email id so it will create 1 more record. So, in this way I want to create 2 contacts for the import.

Very Urgent...:(


Thanks & Regards
Sumit Sahay
