Description: This solution discusses updating contact types on individual relationship records that are on organization records
Environment: All
Version: All 


Please ensure that you are selecting the "Individual Relationship" record type and the value type of "Is Contact" with a value of "Yes" in the data file in order to make the "Contact Type" box on the individual relationship active.  

You will then need to ensure that the value you are importing for the new contact type is a part of the contact type table within RE.

Also, in your profile processing rules, make sure to select Relationships>Individuals and allow IOM to search for the record and either make a full or non-constituent record if it does not exist, depending on how you store relationships.
