I am a web developer and use magento regularly for client websites, and I am having some troubles with the import feature (this is the first time ive had this issue, hopefully the last)
im having some trouble with my ‘type’ field - I can export products fine (via the profile) but I cannot import any csv’s as my ‘type’ field seems to be invalid.
for all my products I have
column name: type
for each product (currently 32) - this was what was exported.
I have searched around and tried the following
naming the column to ‘_type’
changing the value to:
used the profile ‘import all products’, however that also returned an error.
yet nothing seems to be working. Is it possible that it could be validating incorrectly somehow? I have some experience with the magento files, could an xml file be missing the required data to validate product types? where would I look to check this?
Magento version 1.6.2
Im using a theme, sample data used (all product data etc was removed)
cache disabled (I dont think this would cause the issue)
has anyone encountered this as well? If we have to insert 32 products manually we will, however it would be great to fix this (more products will come later, and we dont want to have to add 500+ because the csv import does not work)
I should also point out that I tried creating a test product, exporting, deleting the test product and then re importing without opening the export.csv yet I get the same error.
