maysieboy Posted December 22, 2004 Share Posted December 22, 2004 Hello, I am new to OSCommerce, Easypopulate and this forum, so bear with me. I have just gone over to OSCommerce and needed an easy way to populate the SQL database as I have an existing database already, so I decided to use easypopulate. I followed the instructions, installed the php files into the correct location, edited the temp directory to the one I use. To save any problems, I used Easypopulate to download the test data from the stock data already in SQL. Once I had downloaded the file to my pc, I opened it in excel, tab delimited, and then added one line, making sure to add a product code, and essentially copying the format as the test products. I then saved this as a tab delimited .txt file. Next, I browsed for the file using Easypopulate and then executed the button which inserts the file into the dbase. There were no errors, it appeared to have uploaded correctly. I looked in the products section of Admin and no products had been uploaded. I have subsequently checked the temp file, the files have been uploaded there, and I have made sure I CHMOD 777 the directory (as I had to create it). Also, when I download the data from the database using EP and then open in excel, it cannot be loaded as a delimted file as there are no seperators. Is there something I am missing, or something I am doing wrong, please help I am pulling my hair out! :angry: thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
