I’m trying to update the description field for basically every product.  I’ve been trying to do it via an Import and have tried several things.  I did an export of all the products in the database.  Then I took the update file and merged it locally so that the descriptions on each SKU are now the new ones.  When I try to import it, Magento sees the records (Found 459 rows) but never can parse it.  I’ve tried it with:

All Products (from export)
1. a CSV with header row (from original downloads)
2. a CSV without header row and mapped on the profile (boy that was fun...)
3. an Excel XML file with header row.[removed]promptTag("link");
4. an Excel XML file without header row.

SKU and Description Only
1. a CSV with header row (from original downloads)
2. a CSV without header row and mapped on the profile (boy that was fun...)
3. an Excel XML file with header row.
4. an Excel XML file without header row.

So I’m beginning to ask myself if I should update the description via SQL but I don’t want to put that burden on the end user in the future.  I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks In Advance!!!
