Easy Populate & Products Attributes

Recommended Posts

Two Quick Questions

 

I have more COLUMNS (not rows) than are supported by MSExcel.

 

As you may guess, this is related to the complexity of my attributes.

 

Question #1: Is there a way to work with a file that is wider than MSExcel will accept?

 

I look at others' osCommerce sites and they have these huge product descriptions, but when I upload my stuff in EasyPopulate, it truncates my text (in the description column).

 

Question #2: Where/how do I make a change to accept longer product descriptions?

 

Thanks,

 

Lobo

use quattro pro 12 or download certain attribute options and you can lower the count. quattro pro will go out over 18000 columns

 

#2 is an excel limitation

Resuming....

 

There is any contribution who permit completely populate products, for example

 

Categories ( In Portuguese and English )

and

Categories Images

 

 

In my oppinion to be perfect the Easy Populate only need permit create Categories and Subcategories in all stores languages and must permit to set the categories images... Only that it's meassing, i search the web but until now i can's find any EP code to do that.... :'(

Hi,

 

I have been searching high and low for an answer to these 2 problems I am having, so I hope somebody can help. I am using EP on a mac, and I have two problems with PHP server timeouts:

 

1. I can not download the "Complete Tab-delimited File" becuase there are 3,500 products and it's timing out before it downloads. I really need this to work so that when I update the catalogue I know I am working with the latest version.

 

2. I am unable to split files. When I try it creates only one file in the temp directory. My split value is set at 200 and I am trying to split more product rows than this. I think it is something to do with the fact I am using a mac (I read something about changing the end of the rows to "Unix" but wasn't clear if this meant replacing the EOREOR or adding it after). Which ever way I tried it didn't work anyway.

 

I really hope somebody can help me - this is driving me mad!

 

Thanks in advance,

 

WhirlyGirl <_<

Love Easy Populate!

 

I have some products that are beneath several sub categories. When I import my easy populate it only gives me: v_categories_name, v_categories_name_2, v_categories_name_3.

 

Even if I add a column such as v_categories_name_4, it still does not import correctly. It just starts at the top directory of the catalog and imputs the product into partial sub-category structure. The easy populate file does not export or import more sub-categories than 3.

 

Please help if you know how.

Hi everyone,

 

I am having this problem with Easypopulate. Everything works fine with download/upload except 1 colum that downloads but does not upload/updates.

 

This particular colum is 'v_product_cost'

This colum is needed after installing the Margin Report contribution.

I would like to update all my prices on a fly but since it won't upload...

 

Please someone check my code below. I only modified everywhere you see 'v_product_cost' (you could search with ctrl+F.

 

Thanks to anyone attempting even to look at the code below. (easypopulate.php)

Problem solved, turns out my PHP was version 4.3.10 and Zend/Ioncube was cauing the problem, upgraded Ioncube to the newest version and all is well.

Hi everyone,

 

I have been having a weird problem lately with easypopulate. I never had problem with

till i installed a new field (exactly like it is mentionned in the contribution)

 

Even when importing 1 line it says this:

 

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 3

INSERT INTO products ( products_cost, ` 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 ( '', '1213', '', '1', CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, "0000-00-00 00:00:00", '', '', '1', '13.9' 'NULL') 

[TEP STOP]

 

(Sometimes it says colum doesn't match with row.)

 

The new field is 'products_cost' from the contribution margin reports. When putting a file with about 200 products it will upload correctly for about 100 products then this message above appears again. :'(

 

My intuition says that the `-sign should not be before products_image.

But I am not a php guy so could some php guy please help me figure out this problem?

Is it possible that the controbution 'new fields in easy populate' has an syntax error?

I have compared my code 3 times and I know for sure that I have copied 100% what is mentionned in the contribution. :(

it is not a symptom of easypopulate but your server. try downloading in sections by product options (look in your ep file). your timeout for the scripts is probably very very low. also has nothing to do with your mac. of course, you could also break the sheet out into sections and then ftp to the temp directory

 

Hi,

 

I have been searching high and low for an answer to these 2 problems I am having, so I hope somebody can help. I am using EP on a mac, and I have two problems with PHP server timeouts:

 

1. I can not download the "Complete Tab-delimited File" becuase there are 3,500 products and it's timing out before it downloads. I really need this to work so that when I update the catalogue I know I am working with the latest version.

 

2. I am unable to split files. When I try it creates only one file in the temp directory. My split value is set at 200 and I am trying to split more product rows than this. I think it is something to do with the fact I am using a mac (I read something about changing the end of the rows to "Unix" but wasn't clear if this meant replacing the EOREOR or adding it after). Which ever way I tried it didn't work anyway.

 

I really hope somebody can help me - this is driving me mad!

 

Thanks in advance,

 

WhirlyGirl  <_<

Good Morning

 

Can anyone help me, I did my usual search but haven't found a straight answer.

 

Can I use easypopulate to update stock and prices. I tried that one time and gave me product duplicates

 

Thanks

duplicates most likely come from not having categories, and or categories with apostrophies

Thanks

I am trying to use easy populate on a website with shared hosting, so have Globals turned off in the php.ini file and can do nothing about it.

 

I have used the register globals contribution, but have found that easy populate does not then work. The buttons appear to become inactive.

 

There is a section of the register globals contribution the assists a little bit, and enables the download button, which seems then to work fine. But the upload button still does nothing.

 

I need to upload 800 products to my Dad's site. Please can anyone advise of the solution.

 

Thanks Guys

Lot of us have the "nothing uploaded with no errors" thing with the well known message:

 

File uploaded.

Temporary filename: /var/tmp/phpXe32zZ

User filename: EP2005Feb14-1432.txt

Size: 18145

 

I have this since my isp installed a new server with register globals off for a safety reason on a shared server.

 

I went through 10 pages back in this topic.

I have a temp dir with 777.

I tried the

$tempdir = "/temp/";

$tempdir2 = "/temp/";

 

with and without a leading slash.

 

and of course the jb fix:

 

// fix by jb 20040815 set the strings to http post/request, since they don't seem to work on the new server, with register globals=off...

$dltype=$_REQUEST['dltype'];

$download=$_REQUEST['download'];

 

global $HTTP_POST_FILES;

 

  foreach( $HTTP_POST_FILES as $varname => $fileinfo ){

  $GLOBALS[$varname] = $fileinfo["tmp_name"];

  $GLOBALS[$varname.'_name'] = $fileinfo["name"];

  }

// end fix jb

 

Here is the server info of my page:

http://www.eware.hu/index_phpinfo.php

 

I can post my easypopulate.php if needed.

 

Please help me to solve this problem.

 

:rolleyes: Mibble: please include my name in your answer if you referring to me.

Thx

All,

 

Just a quick inquiry regarding this contribution...

 

My attributes are very likely going to push the database download OVER the 255 column limits of either Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel.

 

Are there any cost effective means of working around this?

 

What is forcing the problem is the fact that I have one drop down selection box that has exactly 50 items in it. If it weren't for THAT, it would work fine!

 

Every single one of my product_info.php pages (no exceptions) must have this drop down in it with the exact same choices. Can it be hard coded in the product_info.php page?

 

There has GOT to be a better way that will still allow me to upload/download using EasyPop!

 

Thanks (in advance) to anyone who can help.

What happened? I downloaded an EP file, edited it and tried to split the edited file. Now I suddenly get this mass of errors:

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

Is there a way of making EasyPopulate more manageable? Currently, it's all very condensed and looks quite intimidating! Would the creation of new sheets ruin the CSV file?

 

Also, I downloaded my catalogue and it lists all of the Product Attributes - for example - a whole column of "Iron Shafts" when some products don't have any attributes set. I presume I'd just delete it as appropriate...

if safe mode is on you need to change hosts, or ask them to turn safe mode off.

dont delete. easypopulate doesnt know whether you are going to turn products attributes on for a certain product or not, thus they are all presented. it is not unmanageable, i have some sheets well over 20000 lines long and all the way across.

So does this mean that to assign product attributes to different products I have to use the Product Attributes page online? Perhaps you misunderstood me - I wasn't going to delete the columns - instead, I was going to delete the value in the field and enter in a relevant value. I think I'll have to have a play around with it on my local server.

 

I'm not saying that it is unmanageable - but that it could be more manageable - less cluttered. I'm fine with it personally, but if I was to give such a sheet to someone who was not brilliant with spreadsheets then they might struggle. Therefore, I was saying would seperating the data into different sheets ruin the structure?
