    Export build-in Work Item "Planned For" attribute to CSV file first, and import the CSV file back to RTP afterword. In this case, you need to select "Internal Value".

    During importing Work Items from CSV file back to RTC, iteration id is required to map to an existing iteration in Project Area. You can refer to the Importing work items from a CSV file topic in the Information Center for more details.
