Hello Rudolf, First thing i am noticing from your import file is that there is no relation between parent and child products. The import files should have product_parent_sku field so there is a link between child and parent products. You need to add that. To create an override for child product you should have custom_override field in your import file with value set to Y. You can check [url=https://rolandd.com/documentation/ro-csvi/virtuemart/product-import-with-custom-fields]Product import with custom fields[/url] document to know on how to use this field. [quote]I tried importing a single file or importing separate files and each time the result was the same. [/quote] You can have one file for both parent and child products. The results were same because there was no relation between parent and child products and each products was taken as individual product. Do these changes and run your import.

Hello Cindy, We have not looked into developing an add-on for JReviews primarily because there is not enough demand. We can build add-on for payment, since all add-ons are their own plugin, it can be developed encapsulated. So you are not core-hacking RO CSVI. To be able to give you an estimate we would need to know which parts you want to export/import of JReviews. By looking at it, it is a huge extension.

Hello, From what i noticed in VirtueMart is that Call for Price will be shown on frontend when the product has no price set so you need to delete price set for the products. To delete price for a product you need to use price_delete field with value set to Y in your import file. Also VirtueMart products can have multiple prices and to select a particular price and delete, CSVI needs few needed fields in import file. You can check these needed fields in [url=https://rolandd.com/documentation/ro-csvi/virtuemart/virtuemart-prices#import]VirtueMart Price import[/url] document. In the examples section of the document you can see on how to use price_delete field.

Hello, [quote]What happens to the existing fields that are NOW blank( in new file) but were there earlier in Virtuemart? now after imported those fileds would be turned Blank?[/quote] Let me explain. In your Example VirtueMart Product export template, you should have only two template fields, product_sku and product_name. This way you will not have any other fields in your export file. Your export file will have only product_sku and product_name. Now when you import this exported file, no other fields will be updated. RO CSVI will only update the fields which are in your import file. Hope it is clear. [quote]-- or will get appended (add (something) to the end of a written document.)?[/quote] With RO CSVI, in VirtueMart product import product_sku field is the needed field. And it is called needed field because we use the value in this field to identify the product in the VirtueMart products table. If the product_sku value is already there in database then the existing product will be updated. If the product_sku value is not in the database then a new product will be created. We are updating only one field the product_name field for the selected or inserted product. I asked you to test with product_sku and product_name field as product_sku is a needed field and product_name is a basic field which has no processing on import. With this basic import we will know if your import itself has a problem or the fields you are importing are causing the errors. Let me know if you need any more clarification.

Hello Edwin, Ok, this is not an RO Payments issue as I suspected earlier but rather with the Payment Package settings. The problem is with your payment options. By default the option to select the first entry is enabled. You have disabled this and so no selection is pre-checked. The payment package requires an option to be selected. So the solution here is to enable the select first entry again in the betaalmethode field. P.s. Yes I am Dutch but other support is not. So when I am not around, others can pick-up and if it is in Dutch, they have no clue where to look :)

Create Joomla content import template. 4. In the Joomla content import template link reference_id field to id field, website and email to your Joomla custom fields. 5. Run the import with the exported file. Since we are running the import with the id, the content type fields values which has to be Joomla custom fields values will get updated to article with corresponding id. Let me know if this helps.

Hello I followed the steps in the [url=https://rolandd.com/documentation/ro-csvi/dependent-custom-fields-for-all]tutorial/url] (which is similar to the answer) and I ended with two products: the parent which had three CF4ALLParent custom fields and the child product which had three CF4ALL. None of the six custom fields had any value. I tried to prefill the CF4ALLParent and CF4ALL with values and repeat the import but I had the same result. So I thought I could build the product I want and get the csv via an export. 1. I build CF4ALLParent (which represent "type of material") according to the tutorial plus: cart input=yes, layout position=addtocart, display type=drop-down list. Added two values: "Plastic" and "Fabric" (CF4ALLParent image). 2. I build CF4ALL (which represent "material") according to the tutorial plus: price-variat=yes, cart input=yes, layout position=addtocart, display type=drop-down list. Added some values: "Fabric->Cotton", "Fabric->Silc", "Plastic-Nylon" and some more (CF4ALL image) 3. In a new product I added three CF4ALL custom fields, the ones I mention above, with respective prices 1, 2 and 3 (see ProductCustomFields image). Now the user has a master-detail list selection (ProductBuy image) 4. I created the product export template (dcf4all.xml). I *do not* have the custom_parent_value field when I build the field list but I *do* have it available when I build the product import template. 5. When I run the export I get the dcf4all.csv which is missing things, like the field values. My question is how to fix the cf4all.csv file in order to get the product .[attachment]C4ALLParent.png[/attachment][attachment]CF4ALL.png[/attachment][attachment]ProductBuy.png[/attachment][attachment]ProductCustomFields.png[/attachment][attachment]ProductBuy.jpg[/attachment]

Hello, Since you are on Joomla 3 with VirtueMart 3, you really should be using CSVI 6. The support for CSVI 5 has ended and there won't be any more development done on CSVI 5. The file you posted, FORTE.csv, is strange, I can't open it as a normal CSV file. The first 2 lines are OK but after that everything seems broken. The file as it is now can't be read by CSV due to the line breaks and not using any text enclosure. So, my suggestion would be to fix the CSV file first, install CSVI 6 as well. Once that is done, let's see what is going wrong where. You can check the CSV file in CSVI by going to Maintenance -> Analyzer. Load the CSV file and check if it looks OK. After I added the text enclosure " to the first record, it looked OK.

Hello, Looking through the history here some things need some clearing up. First off, your original CSV file, as posted in the first post, is OK. Your Title 1 is what should be in the CSV file, Title 2 in your screenshot is not used by CSVI. Second, this is probably the core issue, it looks to me you have not installed the CSVI plugin for Multiple Custom Field extension. It can be found in [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/downloads/csvi-pro-extensions/csvi-pro-extensions-6-4-3]the extensions download[/url] under the title [b]Product Filter custom field[/b].

Hi, I'm new with virtuemart and csvi. Never used it before. It seems that it is required to add new products to virtemart only with different csvi-templates, is this correct? I know this from other systems with only ONE csv-file upload (for example ebay) - is this not possible with csvi? Is it really needed to upload one csv-file with 2 or 3 csvi-templates to add a new product with title, price and stock? Thanks, Andreas just saw in the docu (http://www.csvimproved.com/de/support/questions-and-answers/915-csvi-field-mapper), that you have there another values in the selection virtumart "product" then i have?? All these fields like "products_price" are missing in my "Product", i have only "product_gtin", "product_in_stock" ... - whats wrong?

Hello, You have two options to solve this issue. First option is 1. Update CSVI5 to CSVI 6, on maintainence tab, backup templates so you have them in CSVI6 format 2. Uninstall CSVI completely, do a fresh install of CSVI 6 3. On maintenance tab run the restore template using the file you backed up. Another option is that you can delete the table csvi_availablefields table completely from phpmyadmin and run the below query so a new table is created and run the update available fields and that would solve the problem. CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `#__csvi_availablefields` ( `csvi_availablefield_id` INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, `csvi_name` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL, `component_name` VARCHAR(55) NOT NULL, `component_table` VARCHAR(55) NOT NULL, `component` VARCHAR(55) NOT NULL, `action` VARCHAR(6) NOT NULL, `isprimary` TINYINT(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', PRIMARY KEY (`csvi_availablefield_id`), UNIQUE INDEX `component_name_table` (`component_name`, `component_table`, `component`, `action`) ) CHARSET=utf8 COMMENT='Available fields for CSVI'";

Hi, I'm in the process of migrating product from a Joomla 2.5.28/VirtueMart 2.0.26d site and importing into a Joomla 3.7.2/VirtueMart 3.2.2 site. On the Joomla 2.5 site I've installed CSVI 5.11. Everything exports OK except the product_s_desc doesn't include the line breaks which on the site is used. When I open the exported CSV file in OpenOffice for Mac the description just shows with white spaces where a line break should be. An example CSV is attached. In the CSVI export configuration I have: Export Type - CSV Field Delimiter - , Text Enclosure - " Include column headers - Yes Excel CSV - No Not surprisingly importing this CSV into Joomla 3/CSVI Pro 7.1.0 doesn't show line breaks either. I'm sure there's something I'm doing wrong but can't find anything that would resolve it. Regards, Julian.

Hello, [quote]With "Template settings are different after import" I mean, i have first saved the Templates with CSVi before i have deinstalled it, and then make a new install of CSVi and import the templates again on the SAME site.[/quote]What is the difference then? I need you to explain me what is different, not just tell me "It's different". It has to be CSVI6 to CSVI6 because CSVI5 to CSVI6 won't work. [quote]I must do a first run to import all parent products and then again for the child products[/quote]There is no need to do that, you can put all the parent and child products in one file. As long as you make sure the parents come before the children. It's biology ;) [quote]but i notice no difference with the setting yes or no[/quote]If you mean the Force stockable parent update, this is no longer used because VirtueMart removed the stockable variants option. [quote]but for beginners like me very difficult to use it.[/quote]Whether something is difficult or easy is very subjective of course. I do agree that starting with CSVI and you have no knowledge there is a learning curve. We don't have video tutorials but we have written tutorials with screenshots. Of course the forum if you have any questions.

Hello, [quote]I followed the steps in the [url=https://rolandd.com/documentation/ro-csvi/dependent-custom-fields-for-all]tutorial/url] (which is similar to the answer) and I ended with two products: the parent which had three CF4ALLParent custom fields and the child product which had three CF4ALL. None of the six custom fields had any value. I tried to prefill the CF4ALLParent and CF4ALL with values and repeat the import but I had the same result.[/quote] You did not include your import debug log to check what has gone wrong. Please send it to check what has happened with your import. [quote]1. I build CF4ALLParent (which represent "type of material";) according to the tutorial plus: cart input=yes, layout position=addtocart, display type=drop-down list. Added two values: "Plastic" and "Fabric" (CF4ALLParent image). [/quote] This looks correct. [quote]2. I build CF4ALL (which represent "material";) according to the tutorial plus: price-variat=yes, cart input=yes, layout position=addtocart, display type=drop-down list. Added some values: "Fabric->Cotton", "Fabric->Silc", "Plastic-Nylon" and some more (CF4ALL image)[/quote] This also looks correct. [quote]I created the product export template (dcf4all.xml). I *do not* have the custom_parent_value field when I build the field list but I *do* have it available when I build the product import template.[/quote] You are not seeing that field in export template because we did not add support for it. For now we have added support for dependentcustomfieldsforall only for import. [quote]5. When I run the export I get the dcf4all.csv which is missing things, like the field values. [/quote] Again you are seeing empty values because of no support for dependentcustomfieldsforall on export. Send me your debug log and let us find why your import is not working.

Thank you for all your help. I've done what you suggested, however I am encountering errors. Attached log and two single product csv's as I want to import one product correctly first before doing all the others. I've tried importing the product csv first then prices csv as you suggested. Problem 1 - Virtuemart image is not showing. Reading your forums I see that allow image to be saved on server must be checked, which it is for the template. The image file exists under the file location. Typing in URL shows this. CSVI Product Sample file csv com_csvi.log.21 Problem 2 - Error message: These fields have been found but are not supported by CSVI: price_quantity_start, price_quantity_end. I have run update fields several times as suggested in the log. CSVI Prices Sample file csv com_csvi.log.25 Don't know what else to do, I've tried over and over again to fix these issues. Joomla 3.6.2, CSVI Improved 6.6.4. Thank you for any help provided.

Hello Steve, The update is available and ready to download. For CSV Improved it is not required to uninstall and remove all. You can uninstall CSVI using the [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1068-uninstall-csvi]Uninstall CSVI[/url] article if you really want to do so. We do not do site maintenance, that is not part of the regular support.

Hello, I had a look at the URL again and since the URL is able to download the CSV file, CSVI should be able to process this file. If you are not on CSVI 7.4.1 version, try the following steps in your import. 1. The first issue with the URL is HTML characters, keeping '&' in the URL says the URL has been permanently moved and so CSVI is not able to read the URL correct. You need to change & to html entity in your URL and save it in Load from URL field. So your URL now be [code type="markup"]https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQDPwGkysPHQeRXIQ3pqrOhDd7e4XgtGAedeNOnndu52S0-ojA4r9LYKqlAnTyjHJ4G7e6O2ZwJbb7f/pub?gid=0&single=true&output=csv[/code] 2. On file tab, set Use file for extension to be CSV so you are forcing the extension to be CSV. 3. On the same file tab set Use file for configuration to No. This way you are telling CSVI to read template fields as CSVI cannot recognise the field names in your file. 4. Add template fields to your template and run the import. Let me know if it works.

Hi, I've created an Virtuemart Product Import template. Every night a CSV is being imported with a cron job, using this template. On the 'Options' tab I've set 'Unpublish before import' to 'Yes'. How I expected this to work is: - first unpublish ALL products, whether they are in the CSV or not - import or update the products from the CSV - set product => 'pulbished' = 1 where column 'published' from CSV is set to 1 This is how it worked for me on an other site so far, using CSVI Pro 5.13. The behaviour of CSVI Pro 6 (currently using 6.4.1) seems to be different, or is not working at all: The import doesn't seem to touch products that are not mentioned in the CSV. Can you please let me know what I should do to get things working as expected (meaning: unpublish ALL products before import, incl. those not mentioned in CSV) Thank you, Kind regards, Ralph Joomla: 3.4.5 VM: 3.0.12 CSVI: 6.4.1 PHP: 5.4.43

Hello, [quote]I hope my templates are saved somewhere :)[/quote]You have backups right ;) Templates are still there, just the database structure is incomplete. [quote]When I try to upgrade it won't upgrade but it asks me to use the direct download link.[/quote]That will happen if you haven't entered your download ID into CSVI. Looks like you didn't follow the CSVI 5 to CSVI 6 upgrade path as outlined in the [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1076-installation-or-updating-of-csvi-6]Installation or updating of CSVI 6[/url] document. You are now stuck between a half update and Joomla having amnesia. If you have a backup of your database, that would be the easiest. In that case you can remove all the tables that start with csvi_ in your site and replace them with the tables that start with csvi_ from your backup. [b]DO NOT REMOVE[/b] the tables if you don't have a backup. Once that is done, check if you can uninstall CSVI from Joomla (to clear Joomla's mind). After that install CSVI 6. You should be good to go after that.

Hello, [quote] Not csvi 5 pro and not csvi 6.[/quote]Are you running Joomla 3.4.1? That is required for CSVI 6. If you have 3.4.1, what error do you get on installation? Make sure you install the component before the addon. For all products I see this: [quote]Child product and empty price, not adding so it will take the price of the parent product[/quote] That means your column configuration is incorrect (assuming this since there is no CSV file). Make sure the columns in your template match the columns in your CSV file.

[b]@lazy[/b], How did you get on with this. I am interested in using multi variants too & if I can make it easier with CSVi, then great. Currently I imported all my product/children in a separate CSV file & now need to link them with multi variants. [b]@Rolandd[/b] Is it easier to have multiple imports as we used to do in VM2 when using the stockable variant plugin? I used to import parent/child file first, then a custom field, set up import and last another CSVi import to link them all together. With VM3 & CSVi6, can all this be done with one template, as @Lazy has set up already earlier in this thread?

Hello, So we checked a little bit further and one thing that stands out is that in the list of notices there is this line [quote]/home/ekkinox/www/cms/administrator/components/com_csvivirtuemart/csvivirtuemart.php on line 47[/quote] The [b]com_csvivirtuemart[/b] is the name of CSVI version up to 3.x. You stated that you are using CSVI 5.21.2 so the name should be com_csvi instead. All this means is that there seems to be a mix of old and new CSVI versions on your site. Are you sure you have chosen the correct CSVI instance? If you only have one CSVI version installed, then it may be a bit of a mess. In that case it is best to remove CSVI completely and remove any tables from your database that start with csvi_ or csvivirtuemart and after that do a clean installation of CSVI 5.21.2.

Hello, The reason you can't import the templates from the CSVI 5 system is because they are in a different format. In CSVI 5, all templates were managed in the CSV format, whereas they are managed in XML as of CSVI 6. My suggestion would be as follows:[ol][li]Create a test website of your old 2.5 site with CSVI installed[/li][li]Update Joomla to Joomla 3.4.5[/li][li]Update CSVI 5 to CSVI 6[/li][li]Run the backup templates option in CSVI 6 on the test site[/li][li]You should get an XML now of your templates[/li][li]Import the templates into your new site[/li][/ol] No need to worry about incompatibilities as all that is needed on this test site is to keep CSVI working to export the templates in XML format.

Hello Edward, Why are you using CSVI 5.20? The current release is 6.3.0 for Joomla 3. If you want to keep using CSVI 5, you may want to use CSVI 5.21.2.

You can try to use one of the alternative installation methods Joomla offers, like the install from folder or the discover method. By the way, if you decide to use CSVI 6, make sure you don't have any conflicts with the broken installation routine by removing all the tables in your database that start with csvi_.

Hello, [quote]Is it possible to define the import fields in the CSV file (first line) and have CSVi auto-detect from there? [/quote] Yes, you can have import fields defined in your file. Just make sure that in your import template on File tab, Use file for configuration is set to Yes. CSVI will then read the fields automatically from the file.

I receive this error when testing a connection to a CSV file.

This is the URL: https://api.trade.gov/consolidated_screening_list/search.csv?api_key=OHZYuksFHSFao8jDXTkfiypO Entering the URL in my browser results in the CSV file being downloaded as expected.

Hello, The CSV file is in the wrong direction. Your data is horizontal whereas a regular CSV file has it's data vertical. The field names should all be on the first row and the data on row 2 and down. That is why CSVI can't read your file. Well it can but it is not the result you want.

I used CSVI to export 2 products. I edited the csv file to add 3 more test products and bring the total to 5 products, then I imported it back into VirtueMart.

You can't embed images into an export file with CSVI as a CSV file is plain text. You would have to manually insert the images into the pricelist. The only other way I can think of is to export an HTML file and create an HTML output instead of a CSV output, in that case you would use the picture_url_thumb.

Hello, You don't have to think about that, CSVI knows which fields are where. All you need to do is make sure the list of available fields are up-to-date. You can do this by going to Maintenance -> Available Fields -> Update. If you still don't see them, you may need to reset the tasks first by going to Maintenance -> Tasks -> Reset and confirm. If you don't see them now, you may have a corrupted database index. In that case, uninstall the VirtueMart addon, uninstall CSVI, remove all tables from your database that start with csvi_, install CSVI, install the VirtueMart addon and you should be fine.

Hello Alex, [quote]So I was wondering if I can break up my CSV file and run multiple imports from different computers or on the same one at the same time?[/quote]Yes that is possible as long as you keep child products in mind if you use them. There is no problem for CSVI, you just need to keep in mind how much the server can handle. If your concern is the speed, you could also make 2 imports where you have 1 where you import all product info [b]without[/b] the images and a separate one with the images. This way the main product info goes in quite a lot faster. You should keep an eye out for CSVI 6, this is quite a lot faster than CSVI 5. This has been tested against a 1 million record CSV file.

Hello Lane, [quote]It's a bit frustrating having paid for a component that I can't get loaded.[/quote]I understand it is an unfortunate turn of circumstances. When you installed version 6.4.2. there were still old CSVI tables in your database and the installer had an issue updating them. This has been fixed in 6.4.3. You downloaded 6.4.2 a few weeks ago and in the meantime we released the fix. I guess you didn't get round to installing CSVI earlier, so if you would have downloaded CSVI just before installing, there wouldn't have been a problem. The best way forward now is to remove all the tables in your database that start with csvi_ and uninstall anything that is left from CSVI in Joomla (if there is any). After that you can install 6.4.2 or 6.4.3 as you please. Do not forget you also need to install the add-on for the extension you will use CSVI with. Let me know how it goes.

Joomla Version: 3.4.5 CSVI Version: CSVI Pro 6.4.2 Virtuemart Version: 3.0.12 Hi There. This website has only just recently been updated from joomla 2.5 to 3.4.5. This old site had a version of CSVI Free and virtuemart which worked perfectly. After updating, I went through and updated everything else (virtuemart, csvi pro) but when I try to import the same csv file we used on the old site, it does not work. I've attached the csv file I'm trying to upload. Just for clarity sake, the csvi virtuemart addon is also installed (version 6.4.2) When I analyzed the file, all columns displayed correctly and it correctly gets the column headers. But when I'm going through the import process and get to the preview, only the columns "Description" and "Retail" are displayed. These are the template fields that I've set up: Product Sku = PartNo Product Name = Description Product Stock = OnHand Product Price = Retail If I continue through the import process and start the import, it seems like its processing the file but then I get this under statistics: Products Skipped 400 And then 400 lines of this under log: 1 Skipped Notice Missing required fields Log file attached. POSSIBLY NOT RELATED: When I try to go to CSVI Pro maintenance page and select VirtueMart, I get an internal server error. I can access every other page fine though... Any help is appreciated thank you!

Hello Roland, I just started with CSVI Pro 6.0 beta6 and trying to make an export of orders in Hikashop. I think I have to make a template, but what is the next step? I can not find how to tell CSVI which tables I want to use, can not find a button 'add fields' or something. Is there any video available which shows a 'how to start with exporting something from Joomla to csv?' (for this version of CSVI) Or do I has to start with version 5? best regards, Nico update: I found a way to add database fields. But a video would help and save some time.

Hello, From what i understand is that the data in product_desc has been skipped because your import file is not UTF-8 encoded. You can run your file in [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/2957-csvi-analyser]CSVI Analyzer[/url] and check for unreadable characters. And when you open and save your file with openoffice the file should have been encoded properly and so you don't see any issue in import. Check [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/916-save-a-csv-file-as-utf-8]Save a CSV file as UTF-8[/url] document which explains this. Can you post your import file to check?

Hello, I need import users from a web with Joomla 2.5.28, VM 2.6.12 and CSVI 4.5.4 to new web with Joomla 3.5.1, VM 3.0.6 and CSVI Pro 6.5.5. When I analize the CSV file to import it is Ok. When I previsualize the CSV file in a import proces I see it ok. But when I try to do the import the result is: Failure. Debug message: COM_CSVI_NO_USERGROUP_FOUND. In a CSV file exist a field with the named: "usergroup_name" but not "usergroup". I try again after renamed "usergroup_name" to "usergroup" in a CSV filed but no runs. I don't know how I can addition this file because the origen is a Virtuemart users and this field not exist in this table. The field usergroup belongs to Joomla user groups. I don't know how combine files from Joomla User Groups and Virtuemart Users in a same template. The structure of CSV flie is that: ^address_1^~^address_type^~^address_type_name^~^city^~^customer_number^~^email^~^first_name^~^last_name^~^middle_name^~^name^~^params^~^password^~^perms^~^phone_1^~^shopper_group_name^~^usergroup_name^~^username^~^zip^ Excuse my English.

Hi RolandD Just FYI, I have just implemented a simple PhpSpreadsheet function into my other project. https://github.com/PHPOffice/PhpSpreadsheet https://phpspreadsheet.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ The code is maintained, works very well. Converting an existing CSV to XLS,XLSX, ODS (even maybe HTML/PDF) is very simple: https://www.codediesel.com/php/convert-csv-to-excel-format-in-php/ I'd love this feature in CSVI :)

Hi, If I go to CSVI maintenance->maintenance, and there select either CSVI Pro or VirtueMart at first dropdown, all I will get is another dropdown with same selections and another greyed out - dropdown (see the image). Joomla is 3.4.5 CSVI PRo is 6.4.1 PHP version is 5.5 with Zend enabled So how to make it work correctly? I believe this has been answered before here, but after few searches I have not found one. I had there older CSV 5.21.2 but before installing the CSVI Pro 6.4.1 I unsinstalled the older one, also made sure from FTP and phpMyAdmin that all folders and database tables had been deleted. Installation of the new one did not give any errors. Only package installed beside com - package was virtuemart add-on.

Hello Tharuna, the following error comes when installing the pkg_csvi_7.1.0_pro.zip: CSVI cannot be installed because your database setup is corrupt. Something is wrong with your csvi_settings table. I have tried to read the old configuration from this table but both the new as the old database field do not exist. The suggestion is to uninstall CSVI and remove all tables that start with csvi_ from your database. Now that the database has been cleaned, you can do a clean installation. Uninstall before doesn't help too! Kind regards, Teresa

Hello Manuel, As per the CSV standard you can use the comma as field separator and the double quote as text enclosure. You will get a valid CSV file export in that case.

Hi, the logic I get it, but I can not achieve it with CSVI! After creating the product Try-A-CSVI successfully I would assign the first group of customers "avalilable for all" to Anonymous. First solution: Assign the first group shopper_group_name, but as you can see from the screenshot, the group has not changed! [attachment]shopper_group.jpg[/attachment] Csv code is as follows: product_sku shopper_group_name product_price product_currency product_tax_id product_discount_id Prova-csvi-A '-anonymous'- 5.5 EUR 4 -1 Second solution: change the assignment of the first group, using shopper_group_name with shopper_group_name_new. For the second value I know what to use, but for the first VM what assigns to "avalilable for all"? Thank you

Hello Sandra, CSVI exports data in three formats, CSV, XML and HTML. If you need to use Excel 2013, you may need to do some local settings to see the exported CSV file. I read this somewhere, not sure if it works but worth trying Open Blank Workbook. Go to DATA tab. Click button From Text in the General External Data section. Select your CSV file. Follow the Text Import Wizard. (in step 2, select the delimiter of your text)

If I remove the primary key from the CSV source file...then I have no key to address the record after it is imported. The Primary key is the member account number, unique to each member. I can't add records without it otherwise its useless. Besides, removing a column from a CSV text file would be impossible...unless we manually download, edit the file, and submit it for importation--which defeats the purpose of automating the import. It appears that CSVI does not do a a typical record import--update existing records based on key match/add new records that don't exist in the destination table with that key. What am I missing here? So the only way to use CSVI for custom tables is to first purge the destination table of all of its records so that all data in the source CSV file are imported (added)

Hello, If you are seeing the untranslated string, it can mean two things. Either the installation went wrong or you are using a language which doesn't have it translated. Just to be clear, the installation should be CSVI Pro first and then the HikaShop addon plugin. This should have all the info for you. After that you can follow the steps in the [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1098-missing-fields-in-csvi]Missing fields in CSVI[/url] document to make sure everything is up-to-date. In case that doesn't help either, a full clean install is recommended by removing all tables from the database starting with csvi_ and then uninstall CSVI and any addons. After that install CSVI and the HikaShop addon plugin and run the updates as explained in the missing fields document, just to be sure everything is up-to-date. If you still have issues, check if there are any Javascript issues, perhaps a plugin is interfering with CSVI. Won't be the first time that has happened. The first two results on [url=https://csvimproved.com/search?q=analyze&Search=]this search page[/url] will explain how to use Firebug or Developer tools to get an idea of what may be going on.

Hello Wolfram, [quote]Thanks, but do i set that in CSV or MAMP?[/quote]That is in CSVI, edit your export template and there will be a tab called File where you can set these values. [quote]I bought the Tool because I thought it would help quicken things up[/quote]It will save time but CSVI can't fix servers ;) Did you ever ask your hoster about why the server kills CSVI? I don't mind taking a look at the backend but I don't see what I can do. The reason I ask for using the limit on the number of exported products, if that works, you could export the products in batches.

Hello, The error shows that the headers of your csv file dont seem to match with the database fields. To avoid this error, you need to add equivalent template fields to your template and in the same order as column headers in your csv file. You then need to set Use file for configuration to No in your template settings and on File tab. This settings will not use the column headers from your csv file but use template fields and import the data in the same order as in your csv file. If you still have issues, post the sample of your import file, debug log and your template XML. To know how to get the debug log check [b]Where to get the debug information?[/b] section on top of this page. To get template XML file go to CSVI maintenance page, Select CSVI Pro on first option and Backup template on second option. Select your template and click continue. Download the XML file and post it.

Hello Rosalie, To use CSVI price import there are few fields which are required and based on these CSVI will insert or update a product price. You CSV file don't have those required fields and so no update has happened. Have a look at the [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/support/import/203-virtuemart/909-product-price-import]Virtuemart product price import [/url]document to know the fields you are missing. Also, i see that you have two fields product_sku and product_tax_id in your CSV file, generally price template is used when multiple prices for a single product needs to be inserted or updated. Since that is not your case, i think you can use Virtuemart product import template instead of price template.

Hello, [quote]Thank you for your reply. When I exported the required fields I realised that most products did not have aliases as they had been imported using J2Store's Simple CSV Import without an alias filed as I thought they would be created automatically in Joomla as is normally done when you enter an article manually.[/quote] Not sure how J2Store simple CSV import works but with CSVI J2Store product import if there is no alias field it is populated automatically. [quote]I realised that the simple answer was to make the aliases the same as the sku for all the books (sku = isbn for books). This seems quite appropriate for the books which are the only products involved in this import. I created an import file to do this and imported it using J2Store's simple csv app. This then enabled me to use CSVI to export the required alias and category_path fields, add the 3 new fields by matching the alias field to the sku and then import it back. Job done! [/quote] Glad to know that all works for you now. Would appreciate if you can give us a review on [url=https://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension/migration-a-conversion/data-import-a-export/csvi-pro/]Joomla Extension Directory[/url] :)

Hello John, [quote]Am I right in thinking that this means that the CSV import will process the images if necessary, but they need to be uploaded first (either via the media manager or via FTP)?[/quote]Correct. If the image doesn't exist on the server, CSVI can't do anything with it. There is one more option in CSVI that allows you to pull images from a remote server and save it in your own site. In that case the file_url field has to be an http:// url. This is the Save images on server option.

I like CSVI a lot but the lack of XLS/XLSX as export format can be a huge disadvantage sometimes. I use LibreOffice which can handle CSV files very well, but Microsoft Excel works terrible with them. Of course I can use import function but some customers can't understand why and and how it works. They only want to open the downloaded file with a simple double click, and usually they get the whole data in a single column no matter what I set up. I used PHPExcel for this task with my custom scripts. With that converting CSV to XLSX is just a few lines and can be done as a last step, after I created the CSV. As far as I can see it's deprecated now, but I'm sure there are a pretty good tools for the job like PhpSpreadsheet etc. I'm not sure about the license of them but could you please consider extending the funcionality of CSVI with that?

These custom fields come from VirtueMart, they are not in the template. CSVI reads them directly from the database upon import. There shouldn't be a need to delete them since they don't match the fields in your CSV file. At least these two. There is at least 1 custom field that matches a name used by the import routine, this does not have to be a name in the CSV file. That is why I wonder which custom fields you have.

I have discovered the problem. When CSVI exports, it creates the CSV in alphabetical order but on the title or alias field when it should be using the category_path. This would not be a problem if all the categories were at one level but will cause problems if (like me) you have hierachical category structure.

Hi Roland, we are using CSVI Pro 6.5.4 and Custom Fields for All by breakdesign. We made all steps for creating a custom field with type plugin and we have prepared a table for CSVI import (attached) following your documentation. But we have one major problem: If values in Custom Field that we made in "Additional Parameters" are not previously set, when we import the csv file, products do not take the value for the field. And my question is, because we have 1000 values for this field (Lumens Range) - how we can set them first in Custom Fields addition parameters, before executing the import with CSVI? I can not put them by hand, is there another way? Best regards, Hrissy

[quote]The export runs at 7:22am on 2016-12-05 (UTC+8) which for CSVI is 11:22pm on 2016-12-04 (UTC). CSVI exports all orders with a date of 2016-12-03 (UTC date minus 1 day).[/quote] No, CSVI will filter using 2016-12-04 as it directly ran a query through our database server which is using UTC+8 thus it'll be 2016-12-05 - 1 day = 2016-12-04. 2016-12-04 is really UTC+8 but it is used together with UTC dates (Joomla, VirtueMart, etc.) which causes the issue. [quote]At 7:22am on 2016-12-05 (UTC+8) you can never export all the orders of 2016-12-04 UTC since that day hasn't finished yet, it still has 38 minutes to go.[/quote] The remaining minutes of the day left doesn't matter as it's logical that there will be orders happening after the CSV has been exported. The issue is that the affected orders doesn't even show in future CSV exports.

Hello Jan, The problem is in the CSV file. The first line has a semi-colon as field separator but line 2 and further has a comma as field separator. This makes CSVI believe there is no value for the category_path. Things go south from there. Fix the separator and you should be good to go.

Hello Phil, [quote]I thought were the right fields to create the values for and yet I'm not seeing them in the installation when I try to map them[/quote]You are doing very well, when I look at the CSV file you have posted, it looks good. So you are definitely on the right track. It sounds like you are missing fields. Did you (or the owner) already install the CSVI VirtueMart add-on? If not, you can download them from Downloads -> CSVI Pro Extensions. If you have already done that or after you have done that please follow these steps in the [url=http://www.csvimproved.com/en/support/questions-and-answers/1098-missing-fields-in-csvi]Missing Fields in CSVI[/url]. That should give you all the fields you need. Since your CSV file looks good I think you can create a template easier. Go to Templates -> Templates and click New. Fill out the details on the first page where action is Import, Component is VirtueMart and Operation is Product. Save the template (not Save & Close). Go to the Images tab and check that everything is set correct there. You need to set Save images on server to Yes. Save the template and start the import. That should get you going I think.

Hello, Thanks. Finally I can do it. I changed the field name in old CSVI: "usertype" to "usergroup_name". Now I have a doubt. If it's possible import the orders from CSVI old (Joomla 1.5.26) to export to Joomla 3 & VM 3, I wish do it. But if this process is risky, maybe is better no import the orders. I know then I will lost the statistics, but... I read a tutorial with information about the process to import export the orders, but I adjoint a image with some questions because the field names have changed beetween old web and new web. I think the fields in CSVI from Jommla 1.5.26 & VM 1.9.9 "order_item_currency" and "order_item_id" are not necessary and they are not equivalent to any CSVI6 fields. Please, see the image to understand better. Excese my English. Thanks and Kind regards!

Hello Jens, You will need to update the Available Fields in CSVI, so it can find your custom field. If this is a regular custom field you can simply include it in your CSV file as an extra column and fill it as needed for each product. You can even leave it out of the CSV file and add the field to the end of your field list in the template with a default value and it will be applied to every product imported.

[quote]I had thought I set "Use file for configuration" to true and then use the column titles in the first line as the "your field" reference in the fields.[/quote]When using the "Use file for configuration" the fields are not used unless you have set the option Extra fields to Yes That is for importing fields that are not part of your import file.

Hello, [quote]I must edit the CSV and add a new field before i can use the copy plugin?[/quote]No, don't edit the CSV file. Just add the product_s_desc field to the list of the Template fields. So for example your CSV file has 10 fields and the Template fields has 11 fields. CSVI will match the first 10 fields from your CSV to the fields in the Template fields and the last field will be imported as-is. You can add a default value here or fill it with the copy plugin etc. The published field is often used like that as well. You can have as many extra fields as needed.

Did you do an update from an earlier CSVI version? Go to the About page in CSVI and click on the Fix database button to see if that solves your problem. If none of that works you can delete the CSVI tables by going to Maintenance and select CSVI Pro from the first dropdown and then select Delete CSVI tables from the second dropdown. After that click Continue and this will remove all CSVI tables from the database. After that you can uninstall CSVI from the Extension Manager. Once that is completed you can do a new install of CSVI Pro.

Hello, Your import file is wrong, there is a space after custom_title. You can set multiple values with # and if there are no values already created, CSVI will create them during import.

Hello Peter, [quote]What steps would you take to import those into Virtuemart so I don't have to add each individual product record?[/quote]What do you mean by adding each individual product record? Some background information, when you import a product it needs to have a unique identifier. This is called the product SKU and is a required field. CSVI checks if the SKU exists, if it does, the product is updated. If the SKU does not exist, CSVI adds the product to the system. [quote]Also, how do i prepare the csv file for the import?[/quote]Usually people use a spreadsheet to prepare their CSV import files. [quote]Do I create one template or 3?[/quote]You need only 1 template with 3 fields as you can add multiple fields to a single template. [quote]No supported fields have been found in the import file[/quote]This means that your CSV file does not contain column headers with the CSVI names but most likely a name of your own choosing. I can't comment further because there is no sample CSV included and the debug log. If you use the names as mentioned in your first post Category\Product\Price, you cannot use the option [b]Use file for configuration[/b]. This must be set to No and you have to add the fields to your template. You can also use the CSVI names instead which are category_path, product_sku, product_price. [quote]Fatal error: Call to a member function reset() on a non-object in /home/fitzadmin/public_html/administrator/components/com_csvi/addon/com_virtuemart/model/import/category.php on line 379[/quote] This looks like it happened because no language has been chosen in the template so the language table could not be loaded. Although this is the category import, I thought you want to do a product import. You can also use the Fieldmapper in CSVI to help you create a template. Now it looks like you have the wrong kind of template set. You need a template of the type Import / VirtueMart / Product.

Read more ...

[quote]What is wrong or what could be the solution?[/quote]The problem I would say are your delimiters. In your template set the Auto-detect delimiters to No and specify your own. Do know that the |-symbol is also used by CSVI for other options. Best is to use the normal CSV delimiters of comma and double quote.

Hello, The error you see is no longer related to the CSV file, I assume that you did get a correct preview. There is nothing strange about the import file. What is stranger is that there apparently is an id field used by CSVI but doesn't exist in the database. If you go to Logs in CSVI, do you see the debug log for that import? I would like to see that to see where it stops. This is assuming you enabled the debug logging in your template. To check, I ran your import file on my test environment and that all went OK.

You need to update your CSVI package to 7.4.1 version. [quote]In the VM custom fields, I created a new custom field -> plugins -> customfieldsforall and I added all available colors from all products and I added the label for 2 languages.

Hello, The error is because of incompatibility of CSVI version and Joomla versions, your Joomla and VirtueMart are to latest versions but not CSVI. You need to update your CSVI to latest version.

I am a little confused, you said you want to import the delivery date but in reality the file has a tracking code. You must use the exact table names in your CSV file if you are using the file as configuration. If you use the template fields, the field names in the CSV file are not used. So that explains why it wouldn't work. Yes, it is normal to see only 5 lines, you can set the number of debug lines in the settings of CSVI.

Hello, [quote]- I need first to upload a file before I can map. Does this mean I first have to duplicate my Merchant to make it a csv export to import in the mapping area?[/quote] Yes you need to upload your csv file before mapping, CSVI will identify the column headers in your file and gives an option of mapping to database fields. You can check [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/915-csvi-field-mapper]field mapper[/url] documentation to know on the same. [quote]- I did above step and it won't read my fields: www.evernote.com/l/AnMJhmQJ-EJCo5Ag1Cijt419de9thKuvIYU [/quote] Your CSV file dont seem to be a valid one. The first few characters at the beginning shows that the file is UTF-8Y, also known as a Byte Order Mark(BOM) file. You have to first save your file as a normal UTF-8 file before doing the import. [quote]- If I have products in stock, how do I just get 'in stock' for the products that have stock? (Because default it would have a number value of stock)And if I don't use stock how will it show 'in stock' (because I have unlimited)[/quote] Are these for exporting your products? Because for import VirtueMart takes only numbers into the database for product_in_stock field. There is a way in CSVI to handle this, You can create a rule using CSVI value comparison plugin to replace number with text you want. Apply this rule on product_in_stock field in your template fields and that should do it. The question is that you want it for export or import.

Hello Marcel, [quote]I;ve tried your suggestion several times.

[quote]My question is: is it possible to make this function in CSVI, it;s the only thing i need CSVI for.[/quote]Since CSVI is extendable it can be build as a custom job. CSV Improved supports [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/858-override-import-export-routines]overrides[/url] and that would be the way to go in this case. As I mentioned, this will be a custom job and not part of the core, so there is additional cost. As to how much I can only tell you once I know what you exactly need. If you prefer a refund that is possible as well.

Good morning, I'm new in CSVI and I have some difficulties with export of orders. A perfect solution would be a csv-file export with additional fields like: shipping_address_1 shipping_address_2 shipping_city shipping_company shipping_country_name shipping_email shipping_first_name shipping_full_name shipping_last_name shipping_phone_1 shipping_phone_2 shipping_zip etc.... In case of need it could be an order advanced export as XML-file, because most of the required fields are available there. However I get an error with order advanced as shown in attachement. How can I add these additional fields to my export? CSVI Pro 6.6.4 Joomla 3.6.4 VM 3.0.18 Please help! Kind regards Teresa

I am using Joomla 3.6.2, VirtueMart 3.0.16, and CSVI Pro 6.6.3. I have 2 sample orders in VirtueMart... no other orders. When I go to export the orders from CSVI Pro, the export succeeds but I get many identical duplicates of the two Virtuemart orders. Instead of the CSV file containing 2 data records, it contains 139 records for each of the 2 orders, for a total of 279 data records. When I look at the orders in Virtuemart admin, there are 2 orders. When I look at "j25_virtuemart_orders" from phpMyAdmin, I see just 2 orders. help! thanks

Hello, This has nothing to do with Joomla or CSVI but more with your site. You are installing CSVI 6 on a site that has an older CSVI version but this wasn't uninstalled before installing CSVI 6. Follow the steps in the [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1068-uninstall-csvi]Uninstall CSVI[/url] document and after that you can do a clean install of CSVI. If you wish to keep any existing templates, you are going to need a backup where you restore the backup of the site and first uninstall the old CSVI and then install CSVI 6. The other thing you can do of course is to recreate the templates. A final note, version 6.5.6 has just been released so you may want to install that version instead.

Hello David, To convert CSVI 5 templates to CSVI 6 templates, You can try following the below steps. But please make sure you backup the site. * Create a new test website of your old 1.5 site with CSVI installed. * Update Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.4.8 * Update your CSVI to latest CSVI 6 version * Run the backup templates option in CSVI 6 using Maintenance menu by selecting CSVI Pro in first option and Backup templates in second option on the new test site * You will get an XML file of the template * Restore the templates into your new site using same Maintenance menu by selecting CSVI Pro in first option and Restore templates in second option. Don't worry if you see any errors, all that is needed on this test site is to make CSVI working so we get the templates in CSVI 6 XML format.

Okay, I've been really lazy about reporting this as I kept thinking I was doing something wrong. But after we update CSVI and to an Update Available Fields, our template fields are gone. We have two custom import templates. These CSV files have 60+ columns. Every time we update CSVI we have to go back into the system and re-map each of the fields. This takes too much time to be of use...my hope was to pass the process of updating the site's membership records to either an automated task, or to staff, but this won't do for them what we need until I can figure out what I am doing wrong. The process is that we have a working template. Fields are mapped, etc. and the import works fine. Until we update CSVI. After the CSVI update we get an error saying that no fields in the CSV file match, and that we need to update our fields. We update available fields, it does its thing, then when we go back to run the import, we get: No supported fields have been found in the import file We then have to go back into the template and re-map every field. With three main files, the smallest is 60 columns, it takes me hours to get this set back up again. It would be nice if the field mapping would find Field names and match them automatically--or even if it would keep things in order, but its not even alphabetic. So what am I doing wrong? Is this not really made for custom tables? (Edit: just an FYI, our field names in the table are the same as the field names in the CSV file, which are also the same as defined in the template. Is the "Your Fields" column is still intact (but not sorted in any order) and the "CSVI Fields" that get cleared out every update).

Hi, I use Csvi Improved to import in Virtuemart csv files exported from AS400, congratulations for the extraordinary work and fantastic component. I have a little problem that I think can be solved by applying a rule. In case of negative storage products As400 in product_in_stock field exports numbers with a minus sign "-" at the end (eg. 100- means that the stock is -100 pcs). I want to import these values ​​in virtuemart product_in_stock as 0 (zero), at the moment they are imported as a positive value. When a stock is negative on the csv file to import, in Virtuemart must be 0. I think the plugin CSVI Replace can help me to solve this problem, I don't know how to set up the regex and find and replace fields in the rule to apply to product_in_stock field. Thank you in advance for your support, regards, Alessandro.

Hi Roland CSVI 5.15 Pro Virtuemart 2.0.26d Joomla! 2.5.11 I purchased CSVI Pro with the understanding i can use it to add products and update all prices accross my virtuemart shop by importing/exporting custom fields containing the product options and prices is this correct? I have the master product and all custom tables working in the test virtuemart installation and i now want to be able to export to Excel CSV and import into the identical production installation. But so far we have been unable to export all the relevant custom field data from the test site. The end result would be to be able to update all products and options in one CSV is this possible? And if it is possible do you know if there is a specific way the virtuemart custom fields have to be set up? Thank you for your time. Ben

Hello Chris, Not really a CSVI issue but rather an incorrect CSV file. By default a CSV file has a comma as field delimiter and a double quote as text enclosure. Since you are not specifying any text enclosure, the system takes the double quote as text enclosure. That is why it stops. A valid CSV line in your case would look like this: [code type="markup"]"TFW-24";"trucks-front-wiper-blades";"Twister Front Wiper Blade for Trucks 24"" 600mm"[/code]The 24" is double double quoted because it is a sort of escape character, so the quote remains and you get 24".

Here are the steps I have taken: Created custom Export template Export three table fields from a custom table into a CSV file. Edited the CSV file, deleting most of the content and then editing three entries as a test. Saved this text file. Copied the Export template and changed it into a Import template. Set the File parameters to Autodetect: Yes, I'm Mac: No, Use file for configuration: No, Skip first line: Yes, Go to Import, select my file for import, Preview file (Looks good) Start Import. Import screen comes up, grey overlay appears. Server does not respond. Process is cancelled. (Grey overlay stays in place). No changes made to table. Debug log shows nothing other then that it was starting the log Any idea why the import is not succeeding? Thanks!

In the amount of order the decimals position is wrong. For exemple it writes 9896,00 € and the right amount must be 98,96 €.

Ok. After upgrading both joomla and CSVI as suggested, and after the reset indicated, I can see now on the template list the Virtuemart option. This looks solved then. Thank you. About this point: "Finally the Download ID, this is odd because this is not CSVI but Joomla code. So Joomla can't save the configuration. It would almost indicate that there is no database entry for CSVI. You do see CSVI under Component -> CSVI Pro?" Yes, I see the CSVI Pro. In fact, I don't know anyway of entering the download ID but from the component -> CSVI Pro menu. But I still get the same error.

Hello, The error you get is because the file cannot be loaded. First thing to check is if both CSV Improved and the CSV Improved VirtueMart addon are the same version. You can check his by going to Extensions -> Manage -> Manage and search on [b]csvi[/b]. In the version column both need to be 7.11.0. If the version is the same for both please check if the file plugins/csviaddon/virtuemart/com_virtuemart/model/export/product.php actually exists. Let me know what you find and we can take it from there.

J 3.5.1 VM 3.14 CSVI 6.5.6 After updating from CSVI 6.5.5 to 6.5.6 to my surpise VM product export templates are not working as they should. First line of the CSV file is not filed with all selected fields. Second line has a "No data has been found for the selections made" message. Before updating all was working perfectly. Tried to update the available fields... no change. Reinstalled the component and plugins for the second time.... no change. (had to reinstall the component to get it to show in the components menu) Removed componnet and all plugins and removed the CSVI database tables. Did a complete reinstall... imported the templates... no change. Installed the example templates... same result. Meanwhile I am at a complete loss here... can't see the solution anymore. I've attached the logs and other files. Will gladly give you backend access if needed Thanks Jack

Hello, [quote]Problem 1 - Virtuemart image is not showing. Reading your forums I see that allow image to be saved on server must be checked, which it is for the template. The image file exists under the file location. Typing in URL shows this. CSVI Product Sample file csv com_csvi.log.21 [/quote] You have used absolute url for your image which is not needed as the image is stored in your server already. You can just use the name of the image in import field like glow-bracelet.jpg. CSVI will take the VirtueMart default location for the product image(images/stories/virtuemart/product/) and process the image. Try import after this change and your image should process good. [quote]Problem 2 - Error message: These fields have been found but are not supported by CSVI: price_quantity_start, price_quantity_end. I have run update fields several times as suggested in the log. CSVI Prices Sample file csv com_csvi.log.25[/quote] As i mentioned already in other post you need to do [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/import/203-virtuemart/912-import-virtuemart-prices]price import[/url] for this and not product import. Price and product are two different imports, you need to setup two import templates and use import file accordingly. The fields price_quantity_start and price_quantity_end are not supported by product import and so you see the error. Please check the linked document on how to do price import.

Hello, CSVI doesn't remove anything when it comes to a replacement rule unless you ask it to do so. You can check the actual CSV file with another program if the descriptions are there.

Hello Ivan, It is not the problem with our CSVI plugin. As the error says "403 Forbidden error" something is blocking CSVI.

CSVI 6 is a complete rewrite so anything is possible but if it were a real error in CSVI, you wouldn't be the only one having this issue.

Hey Marko, While testing the filename export I stumbled upon an issue in the front-end export. So we are fixing that to make sure the given filename is used for export. This is not related to your request but was uncovered because of it. No changes on your end need to be made for this. The one thing you will need to do is alter the HikaShop CSVI export plugin we provide. You will need to add this line to your version[code type="markup"]$uri->setVar('form_export_filename', $order->order_id . '.csv');[/code] and change it so you get the filename you like. In this example it is only exporting the order ID as filename and I am not sure that is enough. So this example, if you export order ID 5, you get the 5.csv file. Adjust it to your needs. Make a backup as well because it will be overwritten if you update CSVI, so you need to reapply the change.

Hello, Do not install the CSVI package, after running the query i sent in my previous post, does your CSVI extension work? In your Joomla menu go to Components >> CSVI Pro and check if it works.

Hello, Not sure what has happened with your installation but I recommend doing a clean installation of CSVI. See the [url=http://www.csvimproved.com/en/support/questions-and-answers/1068-uninstall-csvi]Uninstall CSVI[/url] tutorial on how to remove CSVI completely. It is important to remove all the tables from the database before doing a new installation.

Hello, Have you updated your CSVI VirtueMart addon to 7.3.1 version? You can find this version in CSVI Downloads page and in [url=https://csvimproved.com/downloads/csvi-pro-extensions] CSVI Pro Extensions[/url] section. There is a fix done for VirtueMart order export having empty fields in that version. Can you update and do the export?

[quote]CSVI Pro Version: 6.1.2[/quote]First would be to update to CSVI 6.3.0. As for the rest of the issue, I think you have an issue with your availablefields table. In PhpMyAdmin go to your database and remove the table csvi_availablefields, after that uninstall CSVI and then install CSVI again and after that install the CSVI VirtueMart add-on. Reset the tasks and update the available fields. You should see all the needed fields in the Maintenance -> Available fields page.

Hello Chris, The clue I have is that this means you have either an old CSVI still on that site or there are things left from an old CSVI installation. CSVI 6 cannot be installed on an old CSVI version. At least not yet, the update SQL script is not yet complete. Do you have an old version still installed?

Hello, This is not an issue with the export itself but with Excel unable to handle such files. You're best bet is to use OpenOffice or LibreOffice as they have no issues to read such CSV files. The other option would be to manipulate the output before it is exported using replacement rules in CSVI. Of course I also assume you have set both the field delimiter and text enclosure values.

Hello, [quote]I can instal a "CSVI 6 Beta" simultaneus with CSVI 5 Pro? Or "CSVI 6 Beta" replace CSVI 5 Pro?[/quote]You cannot install CSVI 6 and CSVI 5 at the same time on the same site. You can replace CSVI 5 with CSVI 6 Before I continue with your example. Looking at your screenshot of VirtueMart 1, that layout is a customization, so it will never look like that in VirtueMart 3 unless you customize it. Now your example. In VirtueMart 3 they introduced Multi Variants, this is the equivalent of the attributes in VM1. Here is [url=http://www.csvimproved.com/en/support/import/203-virtuemart/1064-importing-multi-variant-custom-field]Multi Variant tutorial[/url] on how to use with CSVI 6. Have a look at that and see if you can use that. You can always create a first product by hand of course to see how things work in VirtueMart. There is an alternative, [url=https://breakdesigns.net/extensions/stockable-custom-fields]Stockable Custom Fields[/url] however CSVI doesn't support it yet. I am working on implementing support for this extension.

Hi All, Thanks for your efforts. Sadly, while it's now removed the Resized folder, it's still not working as expected. My csv contains the image filename and thumbnail filename like so: category_full_image,category_thumb_image AVT/image.jpg,timage.png In the old version of virtuemart and CSVi (assuming Location product files = "images/vm") the thumb was relative to the full image so this used to populate "Used url" and "Used thumb url" like this: images/vm/AVT/image.jpg images/vm/AVT/timage.png In the current situation (Joomla is 3.6.5, Virtuemart is 3.0.18, CSVi is 7.1.0 Pro) but before the patch, the same csv file is producing this: images/vm/AVT/image.jpg images/vm/AVT/Resized/timage.png After the patch, it populates like this: images/vm/AVT/image.jpg images/vm/timage.png I presumed that it was now working relative to the Location product files folder and tried amending the csv to include the AVT/ part to the path like this: category_full_image,category_thumb_image AVT/image.jpg,AVT/timage.png But this file is producing the same results, ie the AVT/ folder is being ignored and the path to the thumbnail is assumed to be in images/vm. Please advise.

Hello, [quote]1. When I import a csv with only category_path and category_description it somehow changes the order of cateogries in VM. Could I set it somehow to "not change" the ordering in VM?[/quote] Try to add a field ordering in import file and the categories will be import with your way of order set in import file. [quote]2. Is it possible to rename category names with csvi?[/quote] CSVI imports the category_name with category_path field, i mean the last entry in category_path field will be taken as the category name. So it is not actually possible to rename the category name but you can create a new one and delete the old category using category_delete field.

Hello, First of all in your CSV file i see the usage of fields ending _id which is not recommended. Those are primary key fields of database table and using them will mess up your records. The reason you are not seeing products is because of field virtuemart_product_id in your import file. This field will tell CSVI to always update the product and not to create a new one. You need to use product_sku field instead, this will tell CSVI to create a product if not in database else to update product if found. Try importing after cleaning your import file and see how it goes. Post the debug log if you have any issue.

Hello, [quote] I was updating 5.15 free to 5.21.1 pro[/quote]How did you manage that? CSVI Free doesn't even run on Joomla 3. [quote]I pressed the fix database and all the errors went away. The only thing left is now the menu looks off. Is this a concern? Did the extension install correctly?[/quote]Since this is a new install I would say to be sure you better do a clean install. Go to Maintenance and select CSVI Pro -> Delete CSVI tables. This will remove all CSVI tables and then you go to Extension Manager and uninstall CSVI Pro. This will clean out CSVI from Joomla. After that do a new CSVI Pro install, you shouldn't have any issues after that.

Hello Francesco, You need to update your CSVI to 7.3.0 version as that is the latest version. There was a issue with CSVI 7.0.0 and Joomla 3.8 version which has been fixed with CSVI 7.3.0 version.

There has been an issue that urls showing com-csvi-about which is discussed in this [url=https://csvimproved.com/forum?view=topic&catid=44&id=32942&start=6]thread[/url]. This issue has been fixed in CSVI 6.5.7 version so if you running on lower version try updating your CSVI. You can then Go to Components -> CSVI Pro -> About, Click the Fix menu button. Also the existing menus should be resaved so they dont have com-csvi-dashboard text. Let me know if this helps.

Usually caused by security plugins used like Admin Tools or a setting in htaccess. This is something outside of CSVI as it is simply the system telling CSVI it is not allowed to access it's own file. It's odd that you get it with CSVI 6.3 because it has been the same since it's inception in CSVI 6.0. Something else must have changed on the site/server.

Hello, [quote]Thank you, that seems to have solved the problem. I suppose it will included in the next upgrade?[/quote] Yes, this will be included in our next release. [quote]About your second reply: I am aware of that. However, this is not a fresh import, but a correctional one. The CSV file is built from a CSVI export file, indeed to avoid ID problems. Please let me know if my reasoning is still not correct.[/quote] The id fields are avoided so CSVI decides if the record has to be inserted or updated using the required fields of an import. If there is an id field then it is always an update. Since you are aware of that then it should not be a problem.

The product csv rather than the category path have the category id. But when I make my template for category import I can't add the ID or parent that I have in my CSV file. How can I make this work for my website?[/quote] The name of the field to be used for category id is virtuemart_category_id, if you are using quick add button and don't see this field, click Show ID fields option to see all fields ending with _id. For importing parent id, you cannot do it with VirtueMart category import because CSVI populates parent id using category_path field. Since that is possible with your import file, what you can do is first create a template and import virtemart_category_id and category name using VirtueMart category import and then create another template and using [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/863-custom-tables-import]CSVI custom table operation [/url] import parent id and child id into virtuemart_category_categories table.

Hello, [quote]Thank you so much. Order status is working ok, but shipment and payment information is still missing[/quote] You don't need virtuemart_paymentmethod_id and virtuemart_shipmentmethod_id in your import file. Just import payment_element and shipment_element and CSVI will automatically update the equivalent ids of these payment_element and shipment_element. [quote]Thanks for the patch but the website I'm exporting from is using Joomla 2.5 and CSVI free. Target website is using CVSI 7.3.0. How can I do this then?[/quote] We don't support CSVI free version. What you can do is when you are creating orders you can retain the same order id as in your VM 2 database. Add virtuemart_order_id to your order export in VM 2 site and in your new site where you are doing order import, in your import template on Option tab set Keep Order ID to Yes. CSVI will create orders with same id as in your import file. Now in your order items export you can add field virtuemart_order_id instead of order_number and import it in your new site. Since the order id is same as your old database linking your order items will be done to the same order id. Hope it is clear.

Hello, [quote]Here is my csv category file - akvamirspb.ru/site/temp/cat1.csv How do I edit it?[/quote] The file you sent still has fields category_full_image and category_thumb_image.

So checking your file in CSVI Analyser shows that you have category_full_image and category_description as text in your rows instead of image name and actual description. Check the screenshot attached. You can check your file yourself using [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/2957-csvi-analyser]CSVI Analyser[/url] to see what i am talking about.

Hi ! A slightly off-beat question maybe but I can't see any sign it's been asked before. I've migrated a website from Joomla 1.5 to 3.4.8, and the last bit is to install CSVI. On the old site there are a bunch of templates/exports that the current admins use to download Virtuemart order info etc. I've installed CSV Pro on the new site and I need to give the same functionality - is it possible to migrate these CSV templates over or do I need to work out what they all do and re-create them by hand ? Any tips appreciated ! David

[hr][hr]Greetings, I'm having some issues when I try to import items to K2, for some reason the images aren't importing to its respecting item. The process I've been following to import an image is: [ul] [li]Uploading the image to the server in the following path: media/k2/items/src/MYIMAGE.jpg[/li] [li]Including the name of the image file in the Image column of the CSV file.[/li] [/ul] But after importing the CSV file, The K2 item appears with no image and the file that I've uploaded to the server dissapears.

Hey Andy, You can use the way you are asking with the custom_title etc. fields. The debug log is empty but which VM version and CSVI version are you using? The custom_value field should be no longer present as the field has been renamed to customfield_value. Are these fields Grape Type, ABV etc. fields of the type Custom Filters plugin? If that is the case, you will need a different CSV setup. See the tutorial for [url=http://www.csvimproved.com/en/support/import/203-virtuemart/1047-custom-fields-for-all-for-virtuemart]Custom fields for All[/url] on how to setup the CSV file.

Hi there, Can someone please help me with these 3? 1) Setting this thing up again I've forgotten how to run a rule that makes all words start with a capital letter. For example, "the brown cow" needs to read "The Brown Cow". I see cap first letter but not this option. 2) I can't recall how to run a comma buster rule that removes strips/every comma. IE, "It's a lovely, stunning, and beautiful day today, isn't it?" to output "It's a lovely stunning and beautiful day today isn't it?" 3) Finally, is there a way to make the .csv download a CSV (Comma delimited).csv not a CSV UTF-8 (Comma delimited).csv file? The latter always fowls up the import into our shipping software whereas saving the file first as the former eliminates this. Many thanks and kind regards, Monica CSVI Pro 7.10.0 PHP 7.2 Joomla! 3.9.1 VirtueMart 3.4.2

Hello Adam, Thank you for trying out CSVI 6 beta 1 Pro. Are you installing this on a clean installation, as in other words, not earlier installed CSVI on this site?

Hello Kostas, You get no rows whatsoever? If that is the case, then it is clear why CSVI can't update, there is no update channel at all.

The update sites table should have an entry before you can update CSVI.

Hello Tony, [quote]Another question (I'm sure you are sick if me by now) I also have gift items without custom fields.

This way CSVI knows there are no custom fields for that product.

Hello Arnaud, The database issue you seems to come from a very broken installation, no idea how this happened though in your installation. It seems to come from a very old installation that was present in the database. Apparently you have CSVI installed, so if you go to Maintenance and choose CSVI Pro from the first dropdown and then Remove CSVI tables. This will remove all CSVI tables and data. After that you are taken to the Joomla Extension Manager and you can uninstall CSVI. After the uninstallation has completed you can install CSVI again and you should have a clean installation with all tables in place. Let me know how that goes.

Hello, I will need all the information requested under [b]Looking for a useful answer[/b], the debug log is not included. One thing I can tell you is that your CSV file contains a number of fields no longer supported by VM 3, so CSVI won't import them. Just keep category_path and category_description, these fields should import. You can add more fields as needed after that.

Hello, i'm trying to import a database delivered in xml from our delivery partner to virtuemart3.0. How can i make it so csv improved checks the field and parses it to multiple values in that field. For example: sees that color uses , as seperator and fill this as multiple values for the specific produkt sku table. Also for clothing_size the seperator is / so it should fill 2 custom fields with clothing size. And genre (i use the catagory field in the xml table for this). I am trying to import to custom field genre with multiple choices in it, seperated with , black,pink S/M So 3 things, special genre import procedure, special colors one and special clothing_size Current csvi template http://paste.thezomg.com/15907/91979051/ Current csvi tablefields http://paste.thezomg.com/15909/41919876/ Multiple fields combine sql http://paste.thezomg.com/15910/41919993/ and example xml http://paste.thezomg.com/15908/91980451/ Greetings, Jan Willem password in the example csvi is fake :)

I agree, that's why I suggested a maintenance feature :) I have several customers who can use Joomla, Virtuemart and even CSVI, can build a CSVI template, do export-import, etc but they always ask me to do something because their import is very slow (~1000-5000 products in the CSV). So I have to add the index manually or install my custom plugin which checks it but maybe other users don't have this knowledge so a mainentance process with a warning could be useful for them. Or even a "remove index" option too. There are also mainenance processes in CSVI which modify the database content and can do unexpected results if you use it wrong, like "empty database", "clean media files", "unpublish products by category", "remove product prices" etc. And actually you suggest to do this to speed up the import: https://csvimproved.com/support/import/203-virtuemart/1159-speed-up-product-import

Hi rolandd, in one of my CSV files categories may contain the "/" character in its text. Categories exists in the CSV files as 5 separate columns (level 1 to level 5). So I changed the combine character at the rule to "|" and also the category separator in the options of the template to this character. That works - partially! The preview shows the correct category path and the products are imported. Categories are created but not as a path but each category as main category. Because of this the list of categories shows 0 products for the categories. Is this a feature, a faulty use of CSVI or a bug? Best Romana

Hello, The error says that you are missing a required field usergroup_name field in your import file. You need to add it to your import file so the error is gone. Also your csv file has id field which is not needed and can be removed. CSVI will identify users using email and usergroup_name field. If id field is found in the import file CSV will only do an update to user records and no new users will be added. This is because id is primary key field of a database table and it says that user is already present in the database records.

Hello Roland, I solved a problem about thumb sizes, they are a cause of template and imaged sizes. The template in Joomla 1 was not responsive and the template that I use in Joomla 3 are responsive. This make some problems also if the image size are not the same in all images. I say that because when I solved this the prices appears ok. Then, as you say, is not a CSVI importation problem :) About the other problem (The VM not find the category images and they are in a correct location) you ask me about the debug log and CSV file that I used for import I don't find it. It is not generated. But the images are yet in a location and I think I only must to writte the route without processing the images. I configure the import template like this: Fields: file_url_thumb (Only this because the other information are yet imported ok) Primary language: Spanish Translation language: Spanish General option images: All in "No". (No processing images) File image location: images/stories/virtuemart/category/resized/ It's ok? Two questions more: - In the Joomla 1.5.26 to 1.1.9 VM had the Catalan language translated with Joomfish. Now with Joomla 3 there is the multi-language concept but I don'tknow how to migrate Catalan translations from Joomla 1&VM1 to Joomla 3 & VM3. In CSVI PRO Joomla now appears the "primary language" option and "Translation Language" but I don't know how works. It's possible configurate this option to import the joomfish translation or that must be do manually? -In CSVI Pro I see import options to Virtuemart that I can't find in CSVI for Joomla 1. For exemple, I can't find the files "Product_high", "Product width" to import that from csv file exported from Joomla 1 to Joomla 3. Excuse my English, I hope you can understand me. I would say they are fields that I can import in the last version of CSVI PRO, but maybe this is not possible to do because I can't generate this files with CSVI in Joomla 1.

Thank you, Roland - you were right: I am using CSVI 5 Pro and there's no reason why it wouldn't work. I made a mistake in my CSV-file (an unnecessary comma), after correcting it, everything's fine.

But everything's ok now and my client will be happy ... :-)

Hello Thurana, Thank you, that seems to have solved the problem. I suppose it will included in the next upgrade? About your second reply: I am aware of that.

Have a very nice day!

Hello, my customer would like to work in the following way: - export all products with all available fields - open that export file in Excel - apply changes and additions to this Excel sheet - save that sheet - re-import that file This seems to be a reasonable wish, but very complicated (if not impossible) to achieve with CSVI. I've been able to set up the required templates to assure a match between the fields. But I don't seem to be able to use delimiters that are a)good for Excel (; and ") and b)not included in the data (the customer uses ; and " in his data) and c)good for a re-import. If I save the altered data from Excel in a CSV file I end up with a file that has double "" and confusion with ; So is there an easy way to export/import Virtuemart products using CSVI and Excel in together and if so is there a tutorial?

Hi, I've just installed CSVI version 7.6.1 and a virtuemart extension version 7.6.0, it's my first time using CSVI but I've watched a lot of tutorials so I could use it properly.

Hello, CSVI cannot be used for a regular sitemap. CSVI is focused on specific import and export parts. A sitemap is site-wide focused, it will need parts from all around the system. There are specific sitemap extensions that will do a much better job than CSVI will. Of course, you can write you own sitemap export which contains all the logic needed for creating a sitemap :) That is the extensibility CSVI offers.

The file attached is to be imported so that I can update the items on the website in one operation as opposed to exporting from the website,then matching both the local and exported files. I have already looked for a solution on the forums (see screenshot), but it seems that there is another issue probably to do with the spreadsheet but I am not sure. I could cut up the file into smaller blocks, e.g 2500 lines and then home in the un-detected duplicate, but that is only a stop-gap solution. Is there any other way to detect duplicate SKUs? Attached are the files. ALL_SKU_PURE.csv is the cleaned non-duplicate SKU file after deleting duplicates Screenshot of Forum solution for similar issue Screenshot of CSV and Joomla versions PHPmyAdmin SQL query PHPmyAdmin SQL with null result CSV file with duplicates,and formula to expose the duplicates (OpenOffice) CSVI Preview of import template CSVI Duplicate Primary Error Error Log Template

Hello, It seems you did not do a clean install of CSVI 6 and the update has not been completed. First thing you can try is go to Components -> CSVI Pro -> About and click the Fix Database button. If that does not work you will need to [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1068-uninstall-csvi]Uninstall CSVI[/url] and install the component and VirtueMart addon again. So you have a clean setup.

Hello, I am not talking about CSVI HikaShop addon extension but the actual Hikashop extension itself. CSVI reads the fields from HikaShop tables so to add them as available fields but in your case, CSVI could not find the HikaShop tables and so the error "....not an available table".

Hello Günther, Let's handle the different issues one at a time. [quote]But I did not find any new fields with Size and Color.[/quote]That is because they are of a special type. You seem to have mixed up a few things. Looking at your screenshot, you are using Multi-Variants. In your CSV file you say to CSVI, the name of my custom field is [b]Multi Variant[/b] but in your list of custom fields I don't see this custom field at all. Further you tell CSVI that you want to use one ramification called Color but I don't see the color column in your CSV file. Have a look at the [url=http://www.csvimproved.com/de/support/import/203-virtuemart/1064-importing-multi-variant-custom-field]Multi Variant tutorial[/url] for more details. [quote]CSVI has big problems with german special characters, like ö or ß in the word for size (Größe) when used as a parameter for multi variant products. If I take the english words, my tests work fine.[/quote]Without a debug log I can't say much but there shouldn't be an issue with UTF-8 characters. [quote]PS With the full parent file and german words for Size and Color (Größe / Farbe) a got a system crash, because csvi copied the system on and on in the temp directory.[/quote]This can happen for two different reasons. The tmp path in the Joomla configuration is not set to the full path or if the template has not been saved twice and because of that the source details are not stored correctly.

Hello, No new features are being added to CSVI 5 anymore as CSVI 6 is the main version. If you plan to keep using CSVI 5, the only way would be to use a cron job to download the file regularly. You can download the file manually and put it on the server or use the file upload to load it into CSVI. This is recommended anyway when testing, otherwise you need to download the file on every try.

Hello, The only thing I can think of is that some kind of caching is happening where the URLs were generated with CSVI and only after that loaded by VirtueMart. Now that the com-csvi-about is gone and you re-install CSVI, the URLs should still be fine I think.

good morning! I created an ecommerce site (www.smar-tech.it, I'm italian) using: - joomla 3.5.1 - virtuemart 3.0.16 - csvi pro 6.6.0 My product catalog has more than 40,000 items (file .csv of 130Mb) and should be updated to 2 times per week. I already created the template that allows me to import the price list in virtuemart and working properly. I wanted to know if there is an automatic method that allows CSVI to compare the old with the new price list, eliminating the products that are not produced by us and instead updating the same products. I hope I have explained properly what I would do, and thank you all for the answers. Attached is an extract of the catalog that I have to be imported.

Hello Rolandd, yes, that sentence I did read :-) But I do not know what that means. Do I have to write a plugin for CSVI, or is there a field available which could manage it. Or more simpler asked: How can I join two tables? I am practiced with the custom fields and sql and I have a query which does a table LEFTJOIN for a complete csv for a special export of more than the available fields of (for e.g.) included order-products, -users and so on. So now I try to realize an based sql statement (which is including 2 or more tables) and I do not get it to work with CSVI :-) Please point me a direction. Best regards, Pierre.

Hello Chris, [quote]First of all - is Hikashop fully supported by CSVI Pro 6?[/quote]Depends on what you qualify as fully :) There is a product, category and customer import available at the moment. A few more exports are available as well. The reason you don't find any tutorials is because I haven't written them yet. The product export tutorial is planned for this weekend. [quote]Are all of them supported in CSVI Pro 6?[/quote]Custom fields are not yet supported. I have attached my test CSV file for HikaShop. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. The HikaShop import works the same way as the VirtueMart import, it's just that HikaShop has different field names.

WHAT HAPPENS: At the import, the colors I added in the csv are added to the product but also ALL colors which I added into the custom fields in the beginning are showing on the product -> so lots of colors double + in the custom fieds, the colors I added to the product, are also added in the custom fields plugin, so there are the colors also double.

Hello, Since this is an English-only forum the answer will be in English so other users can read as well. Now the installation goes wrong as it looks like you have traces of an older CSVI installation installed. You can remove CSVI as described in the [url=https://csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1068-uninstall-csvi]Uninstall CSVI[/url] document and after that uninstall it from Joomla. After that you can do a clean install and all should be well.

VirtueMart version 3.0.16 CSVI version 6.5.7 Product and Media Import Virtuemart - I created a template to upload products with the product images. This template has the following fields (see csv file attached). The pictures I upload directly to the server (images / stories / virtuemart / product). Then I import everything with the template. This has so far worked, everything was imported, the images - perfect. Since the last update of the CSVI but unfortunately does not work anymore It does not work because the product data is displayed correctly, but the images no longer, before it worked. The file url is as before in the template images/stories/virtuemart/product/example.jpg but the images are no longer displayed after the upload, as before, the images are not uploaded. That's the problem. Kind regards Esther

If you have english set in VirtueMart configuration and in language settings you will see English as an option in CSVI import template settings. You can do the import to english tables then and the slugs generated will be in english. Absolutely right - I have did this on 6 sites. But with old versions of VM, CSV and Joomla In new versions of everything i have the problem with slugs, for that I opened the topic here - if the language is English and the table in CSV is in english, when I do the import the slugs are not in english! the greek words are cutted off in the alias field, not transliterated. I did not have the same problem in other sites, although that I am using English language in VM and English language in CSV import table. Is it clear now?

Hi Roland, it seems that actually the behaviour depends by the server and its configuration. I'll try to find out a way to accelerate import images process, since it is not related to csvi. Maybe it's better to first download the images, then upload them in the proper folder and then provide the path in file_url field. Providing a direct url in file_url can generate some troubles, especially for large csv files. In any case thank you! Vittorio

Hello, Looking into the logs shows that there are new product_skus in the csv file you are trying to import, CSVI will do the import based on product_sku, Since these product_sku are not there already new rows have been created. For example 105-144, 109-550 new insertion has been created for these SKUs. Skip new items option has been set to "No". Try setting it to "yes" in template options and these new entries will be avoided.

Hello Jack Lenders, Looks like you have also installed CSVI Stockable custom fields extension along with CSVI Customfields for all. Do you use CSVI Stockable custom fields extension? As per your import file i see you are only importing Custom fields for all values in import. The problem is that CSVI Stockable custom fields extension also supports import of custom fields for all values and that extension is coded to clear any previous entries in database for custom fields for all and insert new ones. What if you disable CSVI stockable custom fields and then run the import? Let me know how it goes.

Hello, I repeat the proces step by step following the tutorial and I install the csvi 6. I install after the plugin CSVI PRO Virtumart. It see that all it's ok but the component interface in not the same, it appears rare. Then I try uninstall all but I can't unistall the pluguin CSVI PRO Virtuemart. Then I try to install again the csvi 5 pro stable but I can't. I remove all csvi tables from PHPMyadmin and finally I can install again the csvi 5 pro stable. At the moment I prefer wait a CSVI 6 Pro stable version because with the CSVI 5 Pro I'm fine. I would like to use the CSVI 6 only in order to do that the derivate products are inside the principal products. I think this is only possible with the CSVI 6. Now I have imported ok the principal products and the derivate products. But I can't see the derivate products. I would like that the derivate products are only accesible from the principal product with a drop down list. I know how to do it if I create the derivate products from the principal product, but I don't know how I can do it if the derivate products exist. Is possible to do it? Or I must to do it manually, creating the derivate products from each principal product? I adjoint a images in order you can understand better the solution that I wish. Thanks for your help.

Hello, [quote]Does this mean that I don't have to set template fields, it just adds info to the database to the right columns?[/quote] Adding template fields is required for any template, CSVI has to know which all fields you are trying to import and if the record in import has to be inserted or updated which is done with help of template fields. For example, in Virtuemart product import product_sku field is identifier field, based on this field CSVI will process a record. [quote]Or does this mean it looks at my column headers which must match template fields but doesn't matter the order the columns are in the csv?[/quote] Yes, CSVI will look at the column headers which must match template fields and does the import. The order doesn't matter if you set 'Use file for configuration' option to Yes in Template settings on file tab but the name of the field should match. If you have your own custom headers in import file, you can specify them in 'Your field' while creating the template fields.

Hello, Yes you can. Easiest is to use the CSVI Custom table export and import. With the CSVI Custom table export you export the content of the virtuemart_products table with the fields virtuemart_product_id and product_sku. Change the values of the product_sku field to what you want them to be. After that import the updated file with the CSVI Custom table import routine.

Hello, It might be you have an issue if you updated from an older CSVI version. What you can do is delete the table csvi_availablefields from the database.

Hi Roland, I am using CSVI Pro 6.5.3 and Virtuemart 3.0.12 and [i]Custom fields for all[/i] plugin. I created 4 custom fields with this plugin in my virtuemart backend: however I did not set any value for them, since I want to import these values with CSVI. So, for instance, I created "color" custom field but I did not set any color as string value (see customfieldsettings.jpg). Then I configured the csv file trying to follow https://www.csvimproved.com/support/import/203-virtuemart/1047-custom-fields-for-all-for-virtuemart. So, my custom_title is "color~otherfield~otherfield~otherfield"; custom_value is "customfieldsforall~customfieldsforall~customfieldsforall~customfieldsforall"; custom_param is "Blue~otherfieldvalue~otherfieldvalue~otherfieldvalue". I did not use other "headers" like custom_price. See filetoimport.xls (it's a xls just as example). After the import, in virtuemart product detail of backend -> "custom fields" sheet, I can see the four custom fields listed, but with no values. Give a look to product_customfields.jpg. So I am asking what's wrong with the csv file? Thank you for the help. Regards Vittorio

If you want to use images/stories/virtuemart/product/ path for images, upload your images to images/stories/virtuemart/product folder and just give the image name to file_url value. That way CSVI will process file_url value as images/stories/virtuemart/product/picture.jpg and the corresponding thumb image is also generated like images/stories/virtuemart/product/resized/picture.jpg. Hope this is clear.

We created a template to export VirtueMart orders daily based on some conditions. It works fine most of the time but the issue is, sometimes, there are missing orders. We investigated the issue and found out that the cause is due to how CSVI handles time zones. We are in Asia and our server and software are configured to use UTC+8. It seems like that CSVI's post processing is not handling time zones properly. When we run the SQL query found in the debug results, we get all orders that we are expecting, including the missing ones. Only the actual CSV file generated doesn't include the missing ones. What we noticed is that the missing orders all have an order time (created_on field) of 23:xx:xx. Some info about what we use: 1. Joomla 3.4.8 2. CSVI Pro 6.6.4 3. VirtueMart 3.0.14 Attached are the template backup and debug results. Thanks.

Hi Roland, Problem solved! Thanks for your support on the issue. Next up: importing products. I created the template and did the first import of the CSV with 313 products. All went well, CSVi tells me. But in the product list in Virtuemart, nothing is added. Also I noticed that the preview couldn't show me all cell information of the CSV file. I added the attachments to this post, maybe you can point me in the right direction again? For your information, this webshop uses two languages, which are NL and DE.

Hello, First thing that strikes me as odd is your formatting of the CSV file. The file is full with > symbols. I guess you came up with your own symbols for text enclosure and field delimiter instead of the default comma and double quote. The fields that are empty are fields that depend on the language where it is stored in. So get these fields exported you need to select the correct language in the Options tab of your export language. The table where VirtueMart stores the language data can be different than you think. So if the current language doesn't work, choose another language. Finally, I see quite a few products without an SKU, these products are not supported for import by CSVI. CSVI requires the SKU field as a unique field to identify products for imports.

Hello, The process images must be set to Yes, otherwise CSVI will completely ignore the file_url and file_url_thumb field in your import file.

CSVI still needs to collect file details to store those with the image, so they must be processed.

Here's what we found: We are trying to export yesterday's orders. Let's say that the steps below started on 2016-12-05 (UTC+8, Asia/Singapore). 1. A CSV was exported on 2016-12-04 23:22:00 UTC and the same timestamp was written to the database and CSVI debug as Joomla is writting UTC time (even though we set it to use UTC+8 on the configurations page). The export used the function DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 1 DAY) which translates to DATE_SUB('2016-12-05', INTERVAL 1 DAY) = '2016-12-04' as our server, PHP, MySQL, etc. are using UTC+8. 2. A new order was made on 2016-12-04 23:38:00 UTC and the same timestamp was written on the database. This new order was NOT included in the CSV exported above as it happened after the export. 3. The next day, 2015-12-06 (UTC+8, Asia/Singapore), a new CSV similar to no. 1 was exported. The export used the same function, DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 1 DAY) which translates to DATE_SUB('2016-12-06', INTERVAL 1 DAY) = '2016-12-05'. The export still did NOT show the order that was made in no. 2 as the order was made on 2016-12-04 not on 2016-12-05. In order to fix this, we think that CSVI should not be using DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 1 DAY) directly in the query as CURDATE() will use the server's time zone (UTC+8) which causes issues like demonstrated above. CSVI should convert the timestamp to UTC first so that it is consistent with the timestamps that Joomla is using before passing it to the query or maybe set MySQL's session time zone first then use CONVERT_TZ().

Hi, I'm testing the CSVI Virtuemart Product template and seems to find an issue with the product_desc field. To illustrate the issue, consider a simple VM Product Template with 3 fields: 1. product_name 2. product_desc 3. product_price The product description is a html code input via TinyMCE editor. The problem seems to appear when the product description has multiple lines, e.g., multiple paragraphs ( tag). See attached screenshot table of 5 sample products. This is the csv file exported from CSVI. Here, all products have single-line product_desc, whereas product 4 has a multi-line description: descr_1st-line descr_2nd-line descr_3rd-line It seems to mess up the table structure. Maybe I miss something or need to do some configuration to allow more robust handling? Could you please help. Thank you.

Hello, To get values of a column from a table by joining two columns in same table to one column of another is only possible using table alias. Currently CSVI custom table export does not support table aliases. if you know how to use PhpMyAdmin, you can run the below query in PhpMyAdmin and export the values to csv from there. I have assumed the table name having author_id and reviewer_id as #__reviewers, you need to use the name as per your database. In the meantime we will see what we can do with table alias with CSVI custom table export. [code type="markup"] SELECT users.name AS name1, users1.name AS name2 FROM #__reviewers reviewers LEFT JOIN #__users users ON users.id = reviewers.author_id LEFT JOIN #__users users1 ON users1.id = reviewers.reviewer_id[/code]

I've installed CSVI a month back but now I notice that the URL for every new article on my site has "com-csvi-maintenance" stuffed in the middle of it - e.g. http://www.oups.org.uk/com-csvi-maintenance/oups-branded-clothing !! I'd *really* love to get rid of this - it seems like a CSVI bug (incorrect routing) ? I've tried a number of things, including this morning the DISASTROUS step of uninstalling CSVI, which took half of my site with it !!

Hello otletgazda, [quote]The file uploaded automatically to ftp is an stock import file name is a variable data, the file generation date: stock20180314-083045.csv, stock20180314-091227.csv. The file several times a day, is not pre-defined time generates the program. How can I automate the import, if there is a variable data in the file name?[/quote] You can set import to be read from a folder instead of a file by setting the folder path in FTP Root folder option and leave the FTP filename field empty. This way CSVI reads all the files from the folder and imports them. And by setting Delete after import option to Yes, the file will be removed after import and so the new files in the folder will be imported next time when the import runs. [quote]we want to delete the import files automatically after processing. We have the solution?[/quote] In your import template settings on Source tab when you select Load from FTP option you can set Delete after import to Yes so CSVI removes the file once import is done. [quote]The ftp saved Virtuemart order export file name appears in the export date: CSVI_NAVISION_VM_Orders_Export_18-03-2018_19.00.csv want the date that appear: CSVI_NAVISION_VM_Orders_Export_2018-03-18_19.00.csv We have the solution?[/quote] In your export template settings on File tab set the Filename for exported file field to CSVI_NAVISION_VM_Orders_Export_[Y]-[m]-[d]_[h].[i].csv to change the date format.

Hello, Received the login details and was able to see what is happening. The problem is with the name of your Extra Groups. Your extra group name is maszyny_uzywane but CSVI also uses the underscore to separate group name and field name, so you get maszyny_uzywane_Marka but on export CSVI needs to separate the group and field name. CSVI separates this on the first underscore, so the field CSVI finds is uzywane_Marka. This doesn't exist and so the export is empty. The solution to this would be to rename your Extra Group as maszyny-uzywane for example. After doing that you will need to update the available fields in CSVI and update the fields in your template and template fields but the export should be OK after that. Let me know how it goes.

Hello, [quote]But after we update CSVI and to an Update Available Fields, our template fields are gone.[/quote] That definitely should [b]not[/b] happen. Especially weird because the field names are stored with their exact names and not with any kind of reference. The only reference is the template ID. This works the same way with making a backup and restoring a template. In your case, I assume you never made a backup of your template, if you have, you should be able to restore that. [quote] With three main files, the smallest is 60 columns, it takes me hours to get this set back up again.[/quote]I feel the pain and want assure you this is not how it is supposed to work. [quote]Is the "Your Fields" column is still intact (but not sorted in any order) and the "CSVI Fields" that get cleared out every update).

The only other way is to uninstall CSVI according to [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1068-uninstall-csvi]the Uninstall CSVI[/url] document and then install CSVI again.

Joomla 3.4.1 Virtuemart 3.0.6.4 CSVI Pro 5.21.1 PHP 5.3.29 Imported items with CSV file written with OpenOffice format UTF-8. Imported successfully with all specified fields filled and published set at 1. Joomla back end admin registered the items, but they do not show on the front end web site. As a control, I made another item from Joomla admin and populated the same fields and categories. The item shows up on the web site. The categories were set up with Joomla admin, not via CSV. I have attached the CSV import file in case I have left anything out. I have tested importing a dummy part (see file). What happens is that during importing a parallel (virtual?) category is created (and set as published) instead of the item being imported into the Virtuemart created category. In Virtuemart back end, there are two Global categories. instead of only the one which I manually created. In other words, the CSV created categories do not publish.

I have spent 5 hours today trying to get imported images from .csv to publish. All images are associated with products. They just won't publish. It used to be so easy. Since all I need is the checkbox to tick to publish, I am only using two fields for csv data. product_sku and media_published. I have uploaded the csv file with only a few skus to test. I have used field value(s) 1 and Y. I have tried every combination imaginable for the import template with image processing . You just don't have any documentation for this and I have read every forum post I could find. I just renewed subscription again and found no updates to CSVI pro or VM addon. I have even looked in database for that field value so maybe I could find field name, but I have no idea where it is. Please see screenshot of the field I need to publish. I also attached csv and log files.

Hello, We have a CSV to import products into Virtuemart. Each product defines a set of Categories to belong to (category_path), in this format: "Category A/Category B|Category C". Each time we tweak some stuff in the product CSV (description, prices etc), and we import again. The categories are always the same. (The CSV is auto-generated by code and the categories are static strings, they don't change.) However, on each import, more categories are added in VM backend, without a name/translation in the site's active language. In the database, new category ids are created, and they are inserted in the virtuemart_categories_en_gb table (but the site is in greek, therefore the active table is virtuemart_categories_el_gr). (see attached screenshots) We want the categories to remain unchanged in the database, when we import the products multiple times, that use the exact same categories. Thanks Further details: J3.9.8/VM3.2.15/CSVi 7.12 (latest)

Hello Jo, In your template you have set Auto-detect delimiters to No and the delimiter is set to a comma however your CSV file uses semi-colon as a delimiter. You must set the delimiter to semi-colon in the template otherwise CSVI can't read the file correctly. That should work or it still doesn't? If it still doesn't, go to the Template fields page and select all fields and click the Publish button. Then try the import again and see if it works.

In the corresponding vm table 'xxx_virtuemart_product_customfields' each line is virtually the same with the exception of the unique 'virtuemart_custom_id' and the 'virtuemart_product_id'.

Hello to everyone, i have created 3 Ramifications(Color, Size, Fabric). As a demo i have created a product and 14 children for it with a combination of Ramifications. Is there a way to export parent and all children of it with all Ramifications respectively? Till now i am getting only 1 row at the exported csv with parent only and all 3 ramifications-columns zero. Additionally, i would like to create the rest of the children for all combinations(color, size, fabric) and import them through CSVI. Till now getting 500 - internal server error. But probably the exported csv might be wrong formated. Attaching the exported file for your reference. There is no child in it. thank you very much.

Hello Marcus, Just sent you this answer on your question via email as well: The reason you don’t see it is because you haven’t installed the VirtueMart addon yet.

I apologize for my poor english. I created an ecommerce site (www.smar-tech.it, I'm italian) using: - joomla 3.5.1 - virtuemart 3.0.16 - csvi pro 6.5.7 I'm trying to import a catalog (file .csv of 130Mb) with about 40000 products. Every time I try to upload the file the process ends after 120 seconds, and the program tells me the error that says the photos attached Cattura1.jpg. I also tried to divide the .csv file (130 Mb) into smaller files to upload (3 Mb, 1200 products) but after 120 seconds the problem returns. I tried to upload the csv file is from my pc. I tried to upload it directly to a folder you created on the server. After 120 seconds always the same problem. To be precise, for each upload the csv file in virtuemart products cards I find a hundred products with its category, the manufacturer, the price etc., etc. Then I would understand if: 1) Is a server problem (timing ?) ? I sent a message to report the problem to the manager of hosting. 2) I wrote incorrectly setting the csv file? If so why I find myself in virtuemart updated products? 3) Third and last, there is a problem in csv? thank you all for the help.

Hello, Did you follow the [url=https://www.csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/1076-installation-or-updating-of-csvi-6]upgrade instruction[/url]? If so, CSVI would have converted your templates to the new format. You are in a bit of a pickle now because your current installation is incomplete. The best way forward would be to restore a backup of your site somewhere and follow the upgrade instructions. Once that is done, you have the templates in CSVI 6 format and you can backup and restore them from the maintenance section. With that backup in hand, you could completely remove CSVI from your current site and do a clean CSVI 6 install and after that restore the backup templates in there and you should have your templates again. One note, the replacement rules are not converted, they will have to be redone.

Hello, I do see the issue that sub category name has been used for main category_name from your debug log queries but running import with your template and your import file gets me the right category_name(Screenshot attached). Which version of CSVI VirtueMart addon you are using? If you are running any old version of the CSVI VirtueMart addon, update it to latest 7.4.1 version and run the import again. You can download the latest extension at [url=https://csvimproved.com/downloads]CSVI Downloads[/url] page and from CSVI Pro Extensions section.

Hello, Let's break down the issues you have. First the CSVI version, the current version is 6.5.5, you will need to update to that version to be able to run it on Joomla 3.5. I know you have 3.4.8 but that should be updated as well :) Second, not seeing VirtueMart in the dropdowns, you need to install the addon after you installed CSVI component, so that is one thing you should check. The second is to go to Maintenance -> Tasks and click Reset. After that check if you see VirtueMart in the task list. If you see VirtueMart in the task list, go to Maintenance -> Available Fields and click Update, so you have all the fields. [quote]And when installing templates examples, "virtuemart" examples are not installed neither.[/quote]This also indicates that the addon is installed before the component. Finally the Download ID, this is odd because this is not CSVI but Joomla code. So Joomla can't save the configuration. It would almost indicate that there is no database entry for CSVI. You do see CSVI under Component -> CSVI Pro?

Hello, Apologies, I mistook it for an export because the file is called export.csv I guess :) [quote]How can I tell cron.php that working parts of big csv like JS?[/quote]You cannot because JavaScript is only available in your browser. [quote]cron.php read 100 rows and than read other 100 rows etc. [/quote]You will need to break up the import file into smaller pieces in that case. CSVI can read multiple CSV files from a single folder by specifying a folder name instead of a filename to import. Perhaps if you have PHP 7 available for CLI it may work with a single file because it handles memory quite a bit better than previous versions.

Hello Davide, [quote]I have two questions: - The csv file contains various brands. I can define a filter to import only some brands? [/quote] There is no filter in CSVI to import specific brands.

I can import the first image of the product in a category and use only one picture for the category, avoiding to associate multiple images to the same category? [/quote] This is again something you need to handle in your CSV file. If you want only one image, file_url field has to have that image. There is no option in import to say to import only the first image from the import file. [quote]I apologize for my bad English.[/quote] Good enough for us to understand what you wanted to ask :)
