Wow I just love all of the work you guys are achieving with this, it blows away other up-loaders and so called specialist packages that “make life easy” with magento.

I am running 1.5, with a simple requirement, I have 15,000 products where i need to switch visibility to option 1; ie Not Visible Individually or option 4 Catalog, Search and i cannot seem to make it stick.

my layout is
column 1 sku
column 2 :visibility with either Not Visible Individually, or Catalog, Search as the options.

Do I need to include more columns, (obviously all products exist already)?
How does the mapping work...Do i need to change the values in my csv to 1 and 4, or should it happen automatically, (tried both ways now unsuccessfully, am I therefore missing something obvious)?

any help from anyone gratefully received oh masterful one!

We have just released our Import Evaluation Extension that, I think, will do what you’re trying to do.  Right now, it only works in Magento 1.7.x.  It has the capability of correctly mapping columns and allowing custom columns. i.e. calculated columns and constant value columns.

Great functionality and great price.
