hey Guys! been away for awhile but im back cracking this baby open for some new fun…

I’ve been wrestling with the Import feature in the latest Dataflow (0.8.172) and it seems something is off…

The convert_mapper_column method has been removed?

Whats’ the proper XML action to map columns?

<action type="varien/convert_mapper_column" method="map">

returns

Call to undefined method Varien_Convert_Mapper_Column::setAction()

Yes I am told by a very reliable source whom I won’t name as he may want to be private, can post himself if he wishes, but that importing on this latest beta is “broken” Forget about it. Exporting seems to work fine, but importing is useless.  Thats been my experience and in seeking his help,—he discovered the same thing, Importing just isn’t working correctly.

I did not even know there was a newer beta.  Did I miss the memo?  Didn’t see an email announcing it.  Bummer to hear dataflow is still broken, but no doubt by 1.0 it will be fine.

YEP!! the last BETA 0.9.17740 is out !! But as I hear the dataflow module has some issues reported already.yeah! I am sure these will be fixed very soon given the importance to bulk import. As for the original problem, yes in the previous version column mapping wasn’t working for me too and had logged this bug.

Am not sure if it is fixed in the latest beta. Do check and update the bug if the problem still persists.

A patch would be more than welcome, so that we could starting to test the importing feature a few days before Magento 1.0 will be release.
Thank you, Yoav.
