I have to import a file with 7000 records without scheduling any activities for any of them . Please advise what can be done in this case?

Activities will only be created if you have defined this within your import routine / code
Are you importing new Contacts (and Accounts) or updating existing Contacts with new/updated information?

Most of them are new contacts.
We usually define activity priorities and Puchase rates before importing any file. Should I omit this step to avoid any activities being created?

From what youve said and not knowing your system I would omit that step. However, I would strongly advise you run this through a test system first! Its a golden rule when importing data (Also, backup your live db before you do the import)

I did omit those steps (for 50 records) and still the activities were created. The back up in our organisation is taken care by a third party.I am thinking of importing the entire file and then deleting the activities. Then those activities would not pop up until 60 days, unless there is a way to avoid any activities during the import process.
