Need to set default qty and weight to 1 in admin

Hi,

 

I'm running an online used bookstore and converting to the osc shopping cart. I list each book individually and shipping is based on total number of items being ordered. To get shipping to work, I'm using a weight of 1 for each item and have a shipping table based on that. It works fine, so far, but I have to manually add in the qty and weight when entering an item. What I would like to be able to do is set the default qty and weight to 1 in the admin/catalog/add product page. This would greatly speed up the process of entering over 5000 items with more on the way. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

I'm only a newbie at this but I'd have thought that going into phpMyAdmin and altering the defaults for 'orders_products' 'products_quantity' and 'products' 'products_weight' should do the trick if you want to have the same defaults for every item.

 

I've just tried it and it seems to work.

 

Could someone more experienced comment?

it does, however with 5000 products to add, you can do it all in easypopulate a lot easier and quicker than adding one product at a time in the admin
