Dear all,
Thank you for your comments.

This is EEGLAB 2021.1. Apparently, this feature seems to specific to EGI
(.mff) files, since I tried to load a .set file and dit did not prompt any
such command.

Here is the sequence of commands I have followed:
>File > import data > Using EEGLAB functions and plugins > import EGI .mff
I have attached a screenshot of the prompt I get. It is mandatory to select
a field, if I choose to cancel the data does not load.
