Dear Team, I guess this import thing is becoming too much of a headache, is it not?
We all know you are working very hard to smooth it up with code and documentation
so we are eagerly waiting for the next update to give us a clean & clear Data Flow.

I think, though, that this list of *Required Fields for Import* could be anticipated right now
( as an appetizer?) to allow all those so many developers around
to proceeed right now with the work in their own…

Last, but not least… I want to thank you all for your wonderful gift of Magento grin

From reading this…

http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/6955/

You simply export all products, and you can see how the csv should look when you import it. I believe you can go through the process of manually adding an item and just see what has a star next to it, hence requiring it. I did just that and here are my results:

Products: Name, Desription, Short Description, sku, weight, status, visibility, price, tax class, qty, categories, type, attribute set

Customer: type (admin or customer), First Name, Last Name, Email, Customer Group, Password

I scribbled this down on paper yesterday, so I am not 100% sure its correct but if you go through the process you will soon find which are required.

Hope this helps!
