I am working on a client site and they have about 100 items already entered and a spreadsheet with about 600 more to import.
Before I go in and make a mess of it I want to check/confirm a few things.
1) Some of the items are configurable so can this be done using the standard inbuilt Magento Import/Export tool
I have exported the existing products using Import/Export > Dataflow Profiles and have the CSV it produced.
Basically I want to confirm that:
- if the upload doesn't contain a SKU that exists in the store, nothing will happen. (ie: the store product won't be deleted)
- If a new SKU appears a new product will be created
- If the product details for a SKU are changed the product in the store will be updated.
Also with configurable products, there are a few in the export, how does Magento know which products are the `choices'. I thought there would be a `parent sku' or something but there isn't in the export.
You can try Import Export products from Magegiant.com
