How to Import/export product attribuate value rather than atribuate value label

When I export or import a product, there is new attribute whose value I want to use rather than its label.

By default Magento appears to export the label of an attribute rather than it’s actual value. This makes sense as it results in a more give a more readable CSV file. However in this case I need to be able to import from a CSV where one column is a particular attributes value rather then the label associated with that value.

I posted this question a couple of weeks ago and received a fantastically detailed answer. It is this code generated attribute who’s values I need to import.
