So every time I use a .csv file to import a product (one product - we are built on Magento ver. 1.0.19870 and don’t have access to the API until a future upgrade) every .csv file imported is still listed in the “Run Profile” section.

Do these “expire” or are they always going to be there? Is there a way to clear the list? This importing functionality is going to be used semi-often but to add one product at a time (due to the nature of this particular business). Scrolling through a huge list of old .csv files will become cumbersome pretty quickly.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

I suppose a moderator could move this to the dataflow section…

does anyone know where the uploaded .csv files are located? I read someone say var/import but that import directory does not exist on my install (0.9....)

It looks like this issue is resolved by “magic”

(By Magic, I mean a Cron job).

Seems that the files are cleared out, either via session, cache or cron job. Good stuff. I guess.
