I think that the XML import gives you much more granularity. I don't recall ever having to only import Additional Contacts in the past so I don't have first hand experience.
We prefer a third-party utility called Inaport. It allows importing of additional contacts, history/calendar entries, details, etc.
GoldMine Import tool is not an option. A potential workaround would be to import the contacts as primary records and then use merge purge to make them a secondary contacts.
If this is something that you need to do often then I suggest use tools that would make this process easier.
1. DBX - see Execute Post Event Actions During An Import
2. Inaport - as mentioned by Joseph in previous post
3. CastellGen - if you prefer to develop your own import routine using SQL
4. GoldBox - just not sure if it still supports your version of GoldMine since it hasn't been updated for a while.
Or maybe just hire a part-time employee to enter those if its not that many.
