Apparently this is possible - but not sure how. I have set up my attribute sets, and the products imports are coming in from product records from our stock management system. We have found a way that if we know what the attribute set id is upfront we can then point that batch of records to point to the right attribute set ( otherwise it will end up pointing to the default set). Does anyone know a way of finding this out without having to be a developer and look at code - I mean is there a way to tell from a URL string or from within the admin console?
Any ideas and advice greatly appreciated!
Found out how to do it - if you create an attribute set, and then edit it, the id number appears in the URL string. This means if you do a batch import of product records you can have them point to the correct attribute set ID.
