it ´s really annoying that Magento offers so much functions and the possiility to create a lot of different product types but does not implement a 100% working import.
I am looking since v. 1.17 for the possibility to import grouped products. We have over 18.000 products in our current non-magento shop and grouped product is absolute necessary for us.
I think about a way to make a parent_id as attribute...no problem...but which tables has to be joined, when i run a user script (without the framework)
Please give me a hint, and i will do the developers work and share the script with the community.
I moded magento in many ways to our company needs, but the missing import function of the grouped products forces me to switch to the oxid community edition. Oxid also does not own a grouped import, but the DB design is so simple that it is no problem to write a fast and userfriendly import.
Surely there are more people than me, who can not use Magento due to the missing import of grouped products.
I bet the enterprise edition owns the import of grouped products
Btw. My english is not my native language, i learn with babbelfish
