I’m having mild success importing data. I was actually almost in tears when the image actually imported. And it was so simple ...
Anyway, the import seems to be bombing on the description. I don’t know why, but this is a sample of the description import on one that failed. And when it does fail, it blows up the import window with unparsed html.

I realize after importing a couple that I probably won’t need to add slashes.
One bug I found is that even though I made the SKU value not required, the import will not let me import without one. Lucky me, my client doesn’t use a SKU system. I guess because they have other codes to track by, none which are in their current site’s system.
Maybe I should convert the descriptions to htmlentities? I don’t really see what could be blowing it up, unless there’s a soft limit on the size of the field. Dunno?
Any and all help appreciated.
