Is it possible to use the standard Import functionality (not Dataflow Profiles) to update product information on the store-view level without having to include all other store-views in the import?

For example, if I import the following CSV:

12345,storeA,Test description

It will overwrite the description field for both the default and storeA store views. In this case I only want to update the storeA store view attributes.

The _store column should contain the store code, not the store name. A store code doesn't have uppercase letters in it, so probably that's the fault. It should work as you wrote if you provide the correct store code.
