Easy populate


Recommended Posts

I could not find a solution for missing products_model so I made some simple code for it.


In easypopulate.php


after this code

echo "Added $linecount records and closing file...<br><br> ";
echo "You can download your split files in the Tools/Files under /catalog/temp/";


put this

// create unique temporarily products_model identifier from prefix '__' + products_id
  tep_db_query( "update " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p set p.products_model = CONCAT('__', p.products_id) where p.products_model = ''");

  tep_db_query( "update " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p set p.products_model = '' where instr(p.products_model, '__') = 1");


after this

<INPUT TYPE="text" name="localfile" size="50">
			 <input type="submit" name="buttoninsert" value="Insert into db">



put this

<td colspan="2">
	  <FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="easypopulate.php?create_pmodels=1" METHOD=POST>
		   <div align = "left">
		   <p><b>Temporarily Products_model</b></p>
		   <input type="submit" name="Create" value="Create">
  <td valign="bottom">
	  <FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="easypopulate.php?delete_pmodels=1" METHOD=POST>
		   <input type="submit" name="Delete" value="Delete">



Now you have 2 extra buttons, Create and Delete.

Before you make the csv file press Create, all missing products_model will be filled with a unique number made of 2 underscore's and the products_id.

When you're done uploading, press the Delete button, all the temporarily products_model will be deleted, but only those with the double underscore prefix, so all your original products_model will be spared.
