Easy Populate..

Recommended Posts

I've read through all of the instructions and have manually split the file into two files (first 200 records, second 203 records).

 

I don't get any error messages.. After I try to import the first file, I get...

 

File uploaded.

Temporary filename: /var/tmp/php4f2sUX

User filename: pfizco-ep.txt

Size: 26127

 

But nothing appears in the store (no items/products). So, what could I be doing wrong??

 

Is my database (TAB delimited file) incorrect?? Am I missing something (a process or something)??

 

Thanks in advance..

I'm not sure if I've read this right But..

 

Why have you manually split it and not used EP to split your file?

Tried the EP Split function, but it said ...

 

Creating ???? (file)

0 records added...

 

Tried three times and figured I would do it myself..

 

I also noticed that the sample EP database did not match the one I downloaded from the store (using ep). So I converted everything again and am trying it now...

 

Any assistance would be appreciated??

Here is the exact information from the "split routine"...

 

------------------------------

Easy Populate 2.62-MS2 - Default Language : English(1)

Creating file EP_Split1.txt ... Added 0 records and closing file...

 

You can download your split files in the Tools/Files under /catalog/temp/

----------------------------------------------------------

 

By chance do I have to change the permissions of the temp directory??

 

And why is EP still saying "catalog/temp/"?? I changed it in the code to "/store/temp/".

Thanks for your help.. I know it is going to be something simple, but until I find it...

while (!succeed) {try()}

Can you show me the column name in your .TXT file? I don't need to see the data, just the column names. (This should be the very first row of your spreadsheet)

 

I may be able to look at this and help you with your problem. I had the same, and have since been able to correct it, but it is not just a "here's the answer" sort of thing. Usually, the problem lies in the column names not matching up exactly as they should.

 

Also, did you do and SQL to add all of your own additional columns to your database? You have to do this for EP to find the correct tables to add your data to.

 

You can email me if you like at tom@campbundy.com, and I'll try to help.
