Getting 9000 HTML pages into OsCommerce Catalog

Recommended Posts

I have over 9000 html pages that I need to somehow get into my OsCommerce catalog.

 

Does anyone know how I can do this. I am a little familiar with Easy Populate, but I think I need to find a way to convert the HTML to a excel file. And then I can use easy populate to import them into my database.

 

Any suggestionis/tips/advice?

 

Thank you very much

You might be able to use Easy Populate to migrate them. As I understand it, you have 9000 pages that you want to use as the product descriptions. If you can get them into one file as separated text fields and import them into a spreadsheet, then you can use Easy Populate to upload the spreadsheet to your osCommerce catalog.

 

I believe that Paul is offering to write a parser that will fill in some of the other fields that Easy Populate needs (or he may be intending to do the whole thing with the parser). This could save you some time. Incidentally, if I were doing something like this, I think that I might make the parser convert them to a spreadsheet format and then let you use Easy Populate to upload them. Not so much to make it easier as to give you a chance to look over the results in spreadsheet form so that you can make any necessary edits (chances are that any parser one might make will make a few mistakes) prior to upload.

 

Good luck,

Matt

For future reference, there is a forum for Seeking Commercial Help. You post there, and people send you Private Messages suggesting an interchange of information (what exactly you need; how much it will cost).

 

What you might want to do in preparation is to figure out a way to describe your web pages. For example, a list of files that can be found in www.mydomain.com. Then someone could just go over and take a look at the actual files to figure out how difficult it would be to parse them.

 

Good luck,
