Hello!

RO CSV 8.5.0
Joomla 3.10.11
VM 3.6.8

After updating RO CSV to 8.5.0 from 7.14 I am facing the following problem:
When importing product updates, where I have for example a field named Wattage with a different value it does not overwrite the previous one - look at the screenshot, although Overwrite existing data option in the import template is set to Yes.

Please help, because I am starting to make a big mess on the site, because I did not know about this bug, before making the changes.

Hello,
There is a procedure to update a value of custom field in VirtueMart Product import. You need to delete existing value using custom_title, custom_value, custom_delete fields and then update the new value with individual template field. Please check Product import with custom fields document and Updating existing custom fields values section.
Kind regards,

Tharuna

Is this something new, coming from the new version of the template. Because with RO CSV 7.14 I've never have experienced such a annoying problem. Please look at my table - there are two fields product_sku and Wattage - this is a string typo custom field. I am always updating things this way and it works every time. How to change Wattage now? Show me your example of table, please

With
RO CSVI 7.14.0
Joomla! 3.10.11
VirtueMart 3.6.8

i can make an import without problems and everything works good - wattage is changed from 5KWh to 5k and there is no other rows under Wattage row. The import template looks the same as one I have attached above. I am attaching it again.

I have downgraded CSV to 7.14.0 and everything works fine - import as sharp as always. But I have the same problem as in my previous ticket - I can not make an Export - Column 'category_parent_id' in field list is ambiguous. I think I just need a patch, because for now for this site updating to CSV 8.5.0 does not work as expected.

Hello,
Yes I see that update of custom fields works in RO CSVI 7.14.0 version without custom_title, custom_value, custom_delete fields. I will look into what has changed and keep you posted.

For Export - Column 'category_parent_id' in field list is ambiguous. Please check the thread here, I have posted the patch file. Try to load the patch file and run the export.
Kind regards,

Tharuna

Thank you for the patch - the export works fine now too.
To be honest I do not understand the procedure to update a value of custom field in VirtueMart Product import, i did not ever knew that there is a special thing to do. For me it is always has been easier just to use product_sku and the field that I want to change - it is the quickest and easy way.

Hello Tharuna,
and thank you for your fast help!

For now I do not want to change the version, since we downgraded and everything works fine. When we ungraded to 8.5.0 I will remember to load your patch. For now I will mark your answer as resolving the issue.

Have a great day!
