In custom picklist fields you can select strictly enforce picklist values. Which will not allow any other value in the picklist. In data loader it will start throwing error if the picklist values don’t match to the actual values

Hi Sangam,

To avoid those values  you can easily done by using the Filter in Excel.

1) Select the Lead Source rows in the Excel->Sort and Filter ICON In HOME->Filter.
2) After that click the Drop Down button in that Top Row Value Which is in the Lead Source.
3)Choose the Phone,Email,Web in the Checkboxes->OK.
4) Copy the Filtered Values and paste it in another Excel Sheet->save as CSV file
5) Then insert that file using dataloader

Because we can't use the Filter Condition in Dataloader during the insert opertaion.But we can using filter in Export Opertaion in Dataloader.
