Were having a problem
Were trying to create an attribute based on the info on another attribute, but we do not want to enter all the information all over again.
The reason is this:
We have a product that can have multiple attributes like so.
Is Instant, Flies, Has Protection from Red, is a Land
Those are 4 different attributes and the product can have them in any order, so basically we have 5 possible attributes each being any possible of 150 atributes in 3 different languages…
So what we want to do is have 5 different variable values (for import/export purposes)
Like mtgvariable1, mtgvariable2, mtgvariable3, mtgvariable4, mtgvariable5
Basically these are all IDENTICAL attribute fields with the exception of the name, and atm we dont see any option to “copy” an attribute and rename it so we dont have to do every attribute all over again.
Is there any way to do this?
I understand having “Multiple Selection” is “basically” the same thing however when you use this option, and export products using CSV the variable that results is one long line, when trying to import it back into magento it detects the entire line as one long new value instead of multiple selected existing attributes and it messes it up.
Thats why we want to use one attribute per individual attribute instead of “multiple selection” attributes.
I hope someone can steer us in the right direction..
