NUB question... What does (tab delimited) mean...


Guest

Recommended Posts

That means there are tabs (an "invisible" ASCII character, chr(9)) between fields, as in a file you import into Excel.

;)

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

No prob...

;)

 

You may be more familiar with the term CSV file.

 

That means Comma Separated Values

 

Another type of file used to import data into Excel, but there are commas between the fields instead of tabs.

There are some categories that are there that weren't a while ago.

 

It's hard to say what the problem is. Since it's a purchased template, it might be the template code.

 

Have you been into your Admin to see if the categories and products show up in there?

:unsure:

I found another shop with the same template: yassadultshop DOT com

 

I Googled the text that shows up when you click on your Privacy Policy link.

:blush:

 

Login to your Admin. Click on Configuration --> Maximun values

 

Be sure these fields are NOT ZERO

 

Search Results

Special Products

New Products Module

Selection of Random New Products

Selection of Products on Special

New Products Listing

 

Then click on Product Listing.

 

On that page is where you determine what shows in what order.

 

Try these settings:

 

Display Product Image 1

Display Product Manufaturer Name 0

Display Product Model 0

Display Product Name 2

Display Product Price 3

Display Product Quantity 0

Display Product Weight 0

Display Buy Now column 4

Display Category/Manufacturer Filter (0=disable; 1=enable) 1

Another thing to check is to go into your Categoies / Products page in the admin and be sure the Status is GREEN on your products.

OK cool... I just went in and did that... and what it did when I uploaded was wipe out the headings that I put there... SO some how in the configuring that I think that it just might take it... cuz on upload it got rid of em... So not sure how but with some changing it prob will take the headings and items... Am I close... THX SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP... :sweating:

Have you tried to manually create a Category, then add some test products to it via your Admin?

:unsure:

 

If that works, then the template code is working, and the problem would be in your import of data.

 

If it doesn't, I'm leaning towards bad template code...

:huh:

I've never tried to import data into osC that way.

 

Sorry.

:blush:

 

I hope you backed up your database...

maybe this is where I am messing up... How do I do this... or how do I know it is this way now...

If you have a choice, I'd work with CSV files.

 

That'd be my preference.

;)

ok then... cvs it is... MAYBE HERE is my problem... On line (1) that is where you put your (Item Stats... Price... Categories... Product Name... ect)

 

Every thing under line one are the items... Got that part... Where in osCom can I match it up so with what is on LINE 1 of my excel sheet...

 

Not sure if this is my problem why when I upload that nothing shows up...

 

O YA>>> GOOD MORNING>.. ;-)

Well, as I said before, I've never imported/exported from osC.

 

You said in an earlier post, that you had manually entered about 300 items.

 

Maybe if you restored the database to what it was at that point, then exported it into a CSV file, you could determine what is what.

 

I always work better from an example when dealing with something I'm not sure about.

:lol:

 

And a hearty 'Wake up, Sleepyhead!", to you, too.

I have got ONE MORE QUESTION for you... I think that I change price of vender list by going to format cells... I need to increase prices by a %... LOL... WHAT option is it... or do I have to change every 15,000 items one by one... THX BOSS...

I've been tracking your progress.

 

It looked to me like you did a re-install, and things are looking much better.

;)

 

I looked for a contribution to do a "blanket price increase by a percentage", but didn't see one.

 

If you did use a spreadsheet to populate things, I could write a simple VB script to up the prices for you, then you'd have to import it again.

 

I'll look more for a "blanket price updater".

Yep... Thx for the help boss... My friend did just that... Reinstalled it... There were several things that were JUST NOT WORKING... and Now they are... Now I am re-uploading all of the photos... AND have the spreadsheet just about done except for the prices... I have my wholesale prices but now I need to take that and increase it by like say 175%... I have been looking in excel to increase one column for to do just that... and not having luck... I AM SURE it has to have it... I bet it is some formula... Not use to Excel so ya having problem... THX SO MUCH FOR THE IMPUT... And if it is not much of a problem to make a simple code... MAN I tell you this whole thing has been a learning step for me... THX Germ / Yoda :D

Obi-Wan has taught you well, Young Skywalker...

;)

 

If you want me to up the prices with a script, just send me the spreadsheet in an email, and I'll up them (just tell me what column and how much), and send it back.

do I have to change every 15,000 items one by one...

I'm woking on my laptop (the Wife is playing WOW on the desktop), and it's not the "fastest horse in the corral", with that many to change it may take a while...

:blink:
