Importing CSV - Still working on it

Importing CSV - Still working on it

Through trails and tribulations I have managed to figure out the database import. I can now get my 5000 items imported into the database. But, now what?

First I see two tables one called 'products' and one called 'ps3_products' which table should I be importing into?

I did put the data into the 'products' table but when I wnet to the ps3 admin and searched for the products none were found.

The big questions is which table should these items be imported to and then how do I get them into the categories after they are in the table. For some reason I had imagined that I would be presented with this huge list of products and I would just drag them into the proper categories. Too easy huh?

Any help is much appreciated.

all of the tables used by PowerStore 3 are prefaced with ps3_. you should use the ps3_products table.

Once the products are in the table, you can edit them in the admin interface to assign them to categories.

Thank you, that did it. Now for the images. In the CSV file there were two columns, 'ProductThumb' and 'ProductImage' which had the all the jpeg's associated with the products. I moved all 5000 jpegs to the images/upload folder on the testing server.

Unfortunately when I check product details no images are associated with the products. Where should these images be and how do I create the linkage to these images?

the images should be in the imagesupload directory:
src="imagesupload/<?php echo $row_WADAProducts['ProductThumb']; ?>"
