i am trying to import my products into my store using the built in \\\"import data\\\” tool. i added one product manually through the \\\"manage products\\\” tab and then exported my product data as a CSV file and then added my other products to that file using the same format.

but when i upload the products again it is only adding 2 out of the 50 products.

any ideas?

latitude,

You may have already figured this out by now, but the first thing I would check is character encoding. What I do before I import a CSV is to open it up in Notepad++, then set the encoding from ANSI to UTF-8 since that seems to be the format that Magento prefers. Any characters that are not compatible with UTF-8 will are then easy for me to spot (usually these turn out to be apostrophes, quotation marks, and long dashes). I then do a find and replace on my original data, replacing any of the problem characters with equivalent UTF-8 friendly versions.
