How to update records without using Sugar's "Record ID"?

Weekly, I have the need to update existing records in Sugar (it's 5 fields that get updated). Unfortunately, I don't want to have to go through the hassle of downloading the accounts list from Sugar, using Excel's VLOOKUP to find the corresponding Record ID and then importing back into Sugar. 

Is there a way to just tell Sugar to update records based on the Name (which is unique for every record) and not the Record ID as defined/created by Sugar? I have tried looking around at the code in the Import module, but have no idea what I'm even looking for. 

Please help!
