While working on Product attribute Script i created a Static attribute as per requirement same as SKU then and added a column in catalog_product_entity table for that attribute, I noticed Two Odd behavior :

1) This attribute changed its on type Static to Varchar while saving it form admin.
2) When I tried to import Product from Magento it skips the values of product for this attribute however when I saved the value from admin It worked even If when I exported product then also the values for this attribute exported in sheet. Then why it was not working in the case of Import ???

I am not able to overcome from these two issue. Any Suggestion question

Thanks in advance
