Easy Populate & Products Attributes

Recommended Posts

I still have two or three significant issues (problems) with Easy Populate after using (latest version 2.76i) for several years on 2 separate web sites. In the larger web site (AlphaNautical.com), for one distributor (as an example), I begin with a 53 KB EP file with 28,798 products in Excel 97-2003 format (Sheet 1).

 

This file is copied and put in a new file (in Excel 97-2003 format) in order to change from a relative to an absolute format. (I use a lot of fields to the right of the EOREOR field in order to concatenate a nicer format description field.) Then all data past the EOREOR field is chopped off.

 

Prior to making any mass load, my norm is to make several test runs with anywhere from 5 to 50 products until the newly built test products look OK. The source data in Excel 97-2003 format is converted to CSV format for input to EP.

 

This is where the 1st problem arises. (My standard setting are:

1) Magic Quotes: Off; 2) Register Global: Off; 3) Replace Quotes: False; 4) Field separator: Comma; 5) Safe Output: True; 6) Preserve Tab/CR/If: False; 7) Enable Attributes: True & 8) SEF URLS: False.

I only use one "Other Support" Option: HTC: True. Note that SPPC is False.)

 

Every field uploads EXACTLY as loaded EXCEPT v_products_special_price. If this is a "new" record the resulting special price is blank (but should contain valid data). If this is an "update" to an existing record, then the result is a special price that was in the product before, not the new price that was uploaded.

 

Now what is really strange is The following. I can then download these same new test records as a CSV file. Next I copy a column from the original test data (remember it did not work before) into the newly created download file and re-run it as an update.

 

Surprise! You guessed it. The special prices work just fine, but problem 2 arises. Remember the HTC option is turned on but the three HTC fields do not get downloaded.

 

As you can see quite easily, I have to upload the 28,000 records at about 1000 records at a time. Then I have to download the entire 28,000 records as a CSV file. Next I take the the special prices directly from the file that did not work and place the in the newly downloaded file. And finally, I upload them again but without attributes and HTC data fields.

 

The 3rd issue/problem is caused by not having an optional switch and field to upload the "Products Short Description" field which is created in the Cieto Featured Products contribution. (I used version v2.54 MS2). (The "Pros" are that this is a very useful sales tool that randomly "features" your products. The "Cons' are that this requires extensive and careful modification to the (large) admin/catalog program.) Because it has such good sales benefits I recommend it to the careful programmer but not to newbies.

 

After doing all the gyrations cited above, next it is necessary to go back through 28,000 records manually to fix this one field.

 

I hope this prompts the release of a "j" version or someone spots my problem and tell me how to fix the special price upload problem.

 

Thanks

I have a new store I am starting. I have no inventory on it right now. I want to upload my inventory that I have in an excel sheet.

 

Does easypopulate only let you upload once you have something in the inventory or does it let you start from scratch to upload your inventory originally.

 

If so whats the recommended way to upload an initial inventory upload of about 300-500 items?

Hi.

 

some help please ;)

 

Im tring to upload a .csv file using Easy Populate 3.02-MS2 & Extra Fields, but my products have more than 26 extra fields and my provaider gives me a text file with this formt:

 

A,B100094     ,TRUST COMPUTER                     ,13585               ,8713439135855,0871,PORTABLE HEADSET               ACCS,80B                                ,000000.06,0000.06,0000.14,0000.18,C,Y,STD                 , ,        ,        ,            ,000000,000000, ,            ,00000000,0000004.17,06/08/10,EUR

 

where every item sould be an extra field.

 

By adding the following to a .csv file when importing I get ONE exra field added, but I need to be able to update up to 30 extra field by product. I would like to just add this code 30 times at the end but when I add just one more it only updates the last extra field. Ive tried editing the code in easypopulate_functions.php so when looping the products_to_products_extra_fields table it updates more than one, but no luck ;(

Hi all

 

i just installed this great contrib, every thing seems to work just fine.

 

i have only one more wish about this and that is for this contrib to also download work and download the stock (i use Qtpro) but i see no information about Qtrpro in the documentation.

 

Is there any solution to make theese two contrib work together or do i have to do the stock manually one by one?

 

:rolleyes:

I'm not 100% clear on something... is the products_model field required? I'm trying to use EP on a site with a tonne of products and none of them have a products_model (they're books, it makes no sense to use that field.) The field is blank in the database. Does something need to be in there before I begin?

Hi.

 

Thanks for a great contribution and thanks for adding Unlimited Image support.

 

Unlimited Images support for existing blob images is working great and new images can be added to the existing images in the Blob.

 

However there seems to be a problem with Unlimited Images when the Blob is empty.

 

If the blob is empty then EP changes the SQL

 

from

[bLOB - NULL]

to

[bLOB - 17 B]

 

and this causes an unwanted non-image thumbnail to be displayed in product info.

 

Can anyone help to correct this?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Thanks a lot for your great contribution and help me a lot.

 

I uploaded atound 40,000 products with Easypopulate program.

 

But now I want to update the products attributes, I want to download the .cvs file from Easypopulate program, it seems that it couldn't do it.

 

Although I have .csv file which made by myself, but some folders or products I have renamned by cpanel, there are a lot of works to modify the .csv I have.

 

Please tell me how to download this massive informations from easypopulate. I tried to download a category with sub-categories which contains 5,000 products, but it only can make a .cvs file with 2190 products.

 

Thanks in advance!!!!!!!

Um, not necessarily crucial issue, but just a really odd one. Not sure why but the Quick Links aren't showing from the Easy Populate page.

 

 

I installed the following contribution: http://www.oscommerc...y/contributions,500 (dates published: 3 August 2009 & 27 March 2010).

 

My only issue is that the bottom "Quick Links" are not showing. Any idea what could be causing this?

 

 

I was going through the docs that were uploaded in the contrib and found this here:

 

 

How to Use

1. Open up your internet browser and go to your osCommerce Store Admin Panel

Go to osCommerce Admin -> Catalog -> Easy Populate

 

2. Click one of the links at the bottom of the box marked "Create then Download Files" and save the file to your local machine.

 

3. Edit the file in Excel or OpenOffice. Windows users just right click and "Open with" -> Excel.

 

4. After you are done editing, save the file:

 

· Windows-Excel users: should Save as... CSV (MS-DOS) in most cases,

or as a "Text (tab delimited)" file from Excel if a tab delimited file is desired.

or MAC-Excel users, Save as... Windows-CSV. (see Instructions for MAC Users below)

 

· OpenOffice users: as a "Text" file, check the "edit MORE HERE"

 

· Those with special character needs (such as cyrillic), use Open Office

See Special Instructions for Non-Roman Character Sets (below)

 

5. If you have more that 300 items in your store, read the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR LARGE STORES

 

6. Now go back to Admin -> Catalog -> Easy Populate and click the upper Browse button, find your file that you want to upload, then click Upload and Insert Into Database.

 

7. The file will be uploaded to your store. You should see a display that lists the items you are importing. If the last row appears blank, and complains that it can't import this record, all is fine, it's not unusual to get this error at the end of the file.

 

8. If you'd like to use FTP and upload the file, put it in the EP_TEMP_DIRECTORY directory, and then put the filename in the box under "Upload from Temp dir" and click Insert Into Database. Remember the file must be readable by the username that the web server is running as. You might have to chmod 777 the uploaded file to let the script read it.

 

 

Basically point number 2 cannot be found anywhere on the Easy Populate link when I browse my store admin > catalog > easy populate

 

They are present in my easypopulate.php file, I browsed to approx line 1542 and see the info there. So just wondering how come it's not showing up on the website when I upload the files.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I figured this out. The link name "Easy Populate" was pointing to the wrong filename: products_attributes.php

I love EasyPopulate. Just Love it. I have 11,000 items and counting but I do not use the attributes. It would be lovely if it could allow for Specials to be incorporated and make the manipulation of that field easier from the spreadsheets. Is it not possible for that field to be used somehow or because it is a different database file it is not able to be used? I have tried investigating it on my own but it is over my head. SB

I did set admin/easypopulate.php

 

line 122

// if you are splitting files, this will set the maximum number of records to put in each file.

// if you set your php.ini to a long time, you can make this number bigger

//Original Code define ('EP_SPLIT_MAX_RECORDS', 300); // default, seems to work for most people. Reduce if you hit timeouts

define ('EP_SPLIT_MAX_RECORDS', 2000); // default, seems to work for most people. Reduce if you hit timeouts

//define ('EP_SPLIT_MAX_RECORDS', 4); // for testing

 

line 1254

$fp = fopen(EP_TEMP_DIRECTORY . (isset($_FILES['usrfl'])?$file['name']:$_POST['localfile']),'r') or die('##Can not open file for reading. Script will terminate.<br />'); // open file

//Original code while($line = fgetcsv($fp,32768,$ep_separator)) // read new line (max 32K bytes)

while($line = fgetcsv($fp,4194304,$ep_separator)) // read new line (max 4M bytes)

Hi, I met a serious problem when I import .cvs with Easy Populate v2_76i_MS2_1,

The file I download with Easy Populate, and I added price and product's attribute,then I want to re-import to the categories( I have remove all products from categories and just left the categories)

 

I am confused that the data I initially import to the shop with Easy Populate v2_76i_MS2_1, there were not any error...why I download the .cvs,edit it and re-import it...this problem happens..

 

The error report is:

Filename: mens_apparel.csv

| 11-100014 | Active | Outerwear | product/ap | 68 | 2010-8-5 2 | Apparel | Men's Clot | | Hoodies | A&F | 1 | Size | 1 | X | 2 | M | 3 | L | 4 | XL !New Product!

1264 - Out of range value adjusted for column 'products_tax_class_id' at row 1

 

INSERT INTO products ( products_image, products_model, products_price, products_status, products_last_modified, products_date_added, products_date_available, products_tax_class_id, products_weight, products_quantity, manufacturers_id ) VALUES ( 'product/apparel/Mens/Hoodies/AF/Outerwear-A&F-201.jpg', '11-100014', '68', '1', '2010-09-16 11:12:38', '2010-08-05 20:58:00', NULL, '', '', '1', NULL)

 

[TEP STOP]

 

There is no 'products_tax_class_id' in the .cvs

you will want to take a close look at install step #6 of my version 2.76i. Go over those settings with your host to ensure you are allowed to make those changes. Discuss with them the error you are receiving and ask them to help you set the .htaccess file with the instructions on step #6.
