Hi, I am trying to configure my first store and have been struggling with adding an option that the customer needs to select before purchasing a car product. I need them to select their car make,model and Year.  Once they select their car make it only shows cars manufactured by that company, they then select year of manufacture. This will allow my to make sure that we send them the correct part for the correct car and year. Also is there a way that I can upload the information from a spread sheet? I have a list of all the car manufacturers, models and years that I supply parts for. Thank you for your help grin

Hi Paul this is very strange by the same coincidence I too also need to know how to do this. I have only just decided on using Magento though. If it can do this with relative ease then I will definitely use this. Im not scared to get my fingers into making a mod a plugin but being new to the system it would take me longer to do.

I will now have a look at the forums and see if I can find anything else. Please let me know if you find any information out and I will do like-wise for you.

Kindest regards

Matthew

I have found this from a previous post using search but haven’t had chance to try it as I haven’t got the install going yet on the server.

Have you found anything else out?

Kind regards

Matthew

We are experiencing the same problem.  I thought about setting up multiple attributes but this won’t work when years cross manufacturers.  Would love to see if someone has a solution.
