Ok. Here is some more information on this problem I really need to get these products uploaded this weekend!
Again, I originally exported my manually built products as CVS with the magento header values in the first row, and merely populated the cvs with values using Excel. I saved the file as a CSV without saving any of the Excel ‘features’ so that they wouldn’t hurt the CSV in any way. In other words, I’ve done everything correctly. I have all of the categories, attributes, etc., already built in the shopping care. (I’ve done everything correctly, that’s why I’m not getting an “Error:” message during the import.)
I have tried importing both “dynamically” and from the local ‘Import’ directory. Neither of these has worked. The pop-up opens as though it’s going to import the products and it says:
* Starting profile execution, please wait…
* Warning: Please don’t close window during importing/exporting data
Then the page stops working/loading, and says “done” in the status bar (at the bottom of firefox). But, I don’t get any further messages from magento regarding the import. When I did the dynamic import, the files show-up in the import folder, but nothing shows up in my shopping cart on either end. This means the files is uploading, but nothing is importing.
The “Profile History” tab says that the profile has been run 3 times. (These “runs” represent the failed attempts I have made to import products.)

Here is the XML in the “Profile Actions XML” tab:
<action type="dataflow/convert_adapter_io" method="load">
<action type="dataflow/convert_parser_csv" method="parse">
Please, I would really appreciate some help on this from the pros around here.
I could try to upgrade, but I don’t see how that will help, and it may cause problems because I’ve prepared everything in my CVS for 1.1.6 , and I don’t know what kind of changes have been made to the database in 188.8.131.52. An upgrade could cause more harm than good at this point.
I’m also willing to pay for support at this point. I’m not willing to pay 50.00 a month on a yearly contract though.
PS. I also tried the upload/import in IE and I got the same exact thing...nothing.
