Is there a way to delete multiple products and add multiple items via MySQL?

Is there a way to delete multiple products and add multiple items via MySQL?

I have 200+ products I need to delete from my store. These are items that I no longer want to offer for download. Is there a way I can mass delete these items so I don't have to do it one at a time. It will take me a lot of time to delete that many items and do not want to waste my time if there is a way to do it in bulk. Even if I can log into the database and delete them this way would work. I don't have too much knowledge with MySQL database so any help (with somewhat detailed directions) would be appreciated.

Also, is there a way I can add multiple items through the MySQL database by downloading to an excel spreadsheet, writing in the content into the details, description... fields and then uploading? Basically if I could add the details, description, additional settings and SEO information this way and then I could just attach the image within the admin page would save me a ton of time.

I know I received a response previously that adding bulk wasn't an option yet for PowerStore, but I failed to ask if the information could be added in MySQL.

Thank you,

You could do this by accessing the database directly.

You will need to use some sort of MySQL GUI tool like PHPMyAdmin, Sequel Pro or Heidi SQL.

using the GUI Tool, you can access the data in the database directly and select the rows for the items to delete.

to insert multiple records you will need to have a solid understanding of the SQL language and the table structure, this is not something we can offer a lot of support for. you would need to create the SQL Insert statements for each product manually.
