Hallo...
I'm trying to create a multivariant import from two files the customer gave me...
Itryed to follow the online instruction on cvsimproved but without success:
the first file I imported easyly but the second one is something really hard for me.. do you have any suggestion?

I attatche the two files

The file 1 is the base information of the products DispWeb1.xls DispWeb2.xls
The file 2 is the stock level for each variant
The sku is the composition of thefirst 3 column and for the variant i add the size (taglia) column ...

but wasn't be able to see a preview of the multivariant import of the second file (using the composition of the first 3 column as parent sku and copying that and adding the size column to the sku to obtain the product sku)

Hello,
You cannot combine xls files using CSVI but you need to check on command line scripting to combine the files before you run the import using cron.

It would be normal to be ableto import a variant file once you have the parent present in the DB...
Can you explain me better why the system is not able to do that? .. can it be an upgrade (amazon, ebay etc.. work in the same way: you can only import the variant data)

I'm not able to create a script as you asked;furthermore I have other client with this request (be able to import the update of the variant quantities)... and all can give me the parent file and a different variant file (different files templates for each clients) but not a non standard file with mixed parents'childrens data

Pleeese! can you solve the issue of attatcing a child to a parent?
(if there is already a child for each parent the other would be imported in the second import?)

Variants are child products and child products are individual products by itself and you can always update the child product details using a different import file than the parent. But for updating multi variant data CSVI has a standard format to link parent and child product.

You are first user asking for this feature request if we get more of this request we will think of adding it to CSVI in our future versions.

Hello,
One difference i see in your import file from the example in CSVI multi variant tutorial is that both parent and child rows has multi variant values but as per tutorial it should be only to parent row. Since you are saying you are testing the file, please remove the multi variant added as template fields set with default value and add it only to the parent row in your import file and then run the import. If you have any issues post the debug log with latest import file.
Kind regards,

Tharuna
