Q: How to resolve the error: "The MailingStateCode contains XX, which isn't an available state. Your administrator can add it for you." 

A: If the State and Country field types are "predefined picklists" in Salesforce, both fields must be mapped during the export. Note: XX is the ISO code for State/Country. 

  1. Export both “Country'' and “State” fields together. 
    • Salesforce cannot identify the State if there is no associated Country. 
  2. Map Country/State Codes to the correct Salesforce field type. For example: 
    • State code mapped to MailingStateCode
    • Country code mapped to MailingCountryCode.
  3. Map all Country/State data to the same Salesforce field. For example: 
    • Executive State & Company State code mapped to MailingStateCode.
    • Executive Country & Company Country code mapped to MailingCountryCode. 
  4. If the problem persists, reach out to your Salesforce administrator to add Country/State codes to the picklists.

See this Salesforce article for more information.
