Has anyone developed any tools to assist in migrating data from BV Commerce to Magento?

I don’t remember that name on the forum in the past year.
Did you check into the Magento extensions?.

Maye you can export data from that platform and import into Magento using Magento Datafow.

I exported to CSV and attempted to import using an advanced profile w/ mapped fields.  Unfortunately, the process hangs at this point:

* Starting profile execution, please wait…
* Warning: Please don’t close window during importing/exporting data

and never returns anything else.  Does the import tool write to a log?  I’d like to see where it’s bombing. 

I’m also interested in any sql scripts people might have written to import products.

Do you test to add some prodcut (using the backend) and after that, make an export of that product.
I’m thinking that maybe there are some fields requeried that you miss.

That’s an excellent suggestion.  Do you know if there is any documentation that covers migrating from another platform?  Maybe even just a data map, with explainations of all the product fields?

I don’t remember any specific documentation.
The first time that I need to migrate from another platform, I made that test.

1) Create one healty product.
2) Export that prodcut.
3) Change the values of that exported file.
4) Import that file.

After that, I change my another dump, and adapted to the Magento way (and of course, I use the mapping tool).
