If you’re just importing a couple of simple fields there are probably several free plugins that will do the job. I don’t know any off the top of my head because I’ve been using WP All Import for a while, but here is what you need.
1) Ability to import into custom post types
2) Ability to set custom fields an where they’re located in the spreadsheet
3) Ability to set custom fields to a specific value
3 is important because you’ll want to be able to set the field keys for ACF while importing the files. For example if you have a field named
my_textarea then you need to set the following custom fields during the import
meta_key | meta_value my_textarea | = value from spreadsheet _my_textarea | = acf field key, example: field_1234567890acb
As long as your just importing simple text values then any import tool that does this will work. This includes text, textarea, number, url, radio, email, password, single select fields.
For other types of fields you’ll need WP All Import Pro or some other premium plugin.
