The e-commerce.

Categories ID number


Recommended Posts

I try to set up my store first time now.

I have 20 000 products and I use Oscommerce 2.2 and Easypopulate 2.60.



My categories on my web shop are:



And I sell car parts.


I populate my products from deliminated text file, where is not categories names (v_category_name_1 etc.), there is category numbers(highest, lowest and sub category).


Can I set ID numbers or category numbers for those categories what i allready have on my store?

So, when I add products with EP, its populate all with those numbers and find right category name.


My original databese have same gategory names than web store, but there is also numbers(01 to 99) for every category. I can only export products with category numbers.


Example of my txt file:


"car part pontiac" Hi, sub and low category numbers 10 10 10

"car part buick" Hi, sub and low category numbers 10 10 11

"car part chevrolet" Hi, sub and low category numbers 10 10 12


"bike part 1" Hi, sub and low category numbers 99 45 10


cars = 10


bikes = 99


Sub category

gm =10




I hope somebody understand my poor explanation.
