hi,
there are plenty of examples in the forums.
you could look under the dataflow forum.
There is one on-going thread about imports and what has been successfull. There are some min fields required, but not many..

Im uploading new products every week with few issues. There are some gotchas with regards to importing multiple images per product. some slight code changes to deal with this,,,

You also need to consider all you attributes first b4 running the imports otherwise you be going back and forth updating products.

give me a shout if you need some help

Thanks for that, really helpful, I’m glad this isn’t one of those forums where no one helps anyone. Thanks, I’ll take a look in the dataflow forum.
