something I would try , I would get rid of the “” around the numbers. qty, is_in_stock, price, special_price (it may be confusing those values with text not numerics)
remove decimals off the qty’s (not sure that will have any effect)
make the special price the same as the price, to ensure there is no empty field.
now using 1.3, and not tested the auto import yet, a job for today, prior we were using the latest release.
I have noticed a few odd things in using the cron import, but generally I stick to having something that is in the same format as the export that the cron imports and have had no major problems.
here is an example of the csv we are successfully using.
my settings for export and import are listed below.
try setting things the same, doing an export, modify one of the prices, then doing a back end import, make sure it works OK.
then modify another price and try a cron import.
obvious things to check, that the file is in the import folder, the profile names are correct.
Oh and one more thing, I seem to have one profile that just doesn’t work properly. I don’t know what happened to it or why, but it seems to cause an error. I created a new one with the same settings and it works fine. So might be worth creating a new import profile from scratch.
