Does this import function add items to the catalog or just modify the existing one? If it is supposed to allow new items to bee added, am I supposed assign a value to entity_id or is that auto-assigned? Either way, I get this error each time I try.
Starting profile execution, please wait...

I’m not getting any error during import but seems the products does not show up in the Admin / Catalog / Manage Products.
The products are showing up on the front end also in category and search correctly - name, sku, price etc. - but not in the backend.
If I edit another product and change directly in the URL
admin/catalog_product/edit/id/DEMO_ID/store/0/ with admin/catalog_product/edit/id/IMPORT_ID/store/0/
then it shows up BUT just the SKU info is loaded nothing else.
What’s wrong ? Any ideea ?
The cvs have the header row exactly the same names as the field mappings from magento.
And in my case, since I use FMP as a bridge between out legacy retail software and the online store, everything is enclosed in quotes. This was a long way around finding this out. As far as I knew, the latter version shown was perfectly valid, and it imported without error in Magento, but none of the products were ever added.
I should be able to now import the rest of the thousands of products. Wish me luck!
