    Can't be done.
    There's already been a request for it that currently has the feature bumped to "probably in a future pro version."

    If you require this immediately, CSV Importer can do it, although you should do a careful comparison before switching. It can't, for example, match the featured image function of this plugin. There may be other differences; that's just the main one that had me switch to this from that one. (I didn't need taxonomies; did need images.)

    Hi all,
    Just wanted to know what's the diff between custom taxo and custom fields pls?
    I thought it was possible to import data (into a custom taxo) from a custom field column (csv).
    Thanks for your help,

    OK my mistake, it is not possible.
    Then what would be the use of custom fields pls?

    Hi mbfis,
    Refer http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Fields for custom fields

    If you're comfortable making SQL queries on your database, you can easily switch the taxonomy after the categories have been imported. e.g.,

    UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy
    SET taxonomy = 'custom-taxonomy-slug'
    WHERE term_id != 1

    You'd have to set the term_ids to avoid any current categories that you don't want to switch.
