    Another question asked about this program earlier:

    Besides being rather significantly old/missing additional features and still compatible with the existing software, as described several times in this forum (even as recently as the previous page), the number at the end of a field name represents the language to which that field is associated... So, if you have a second language that has a language id of 2, then upload of that information would populate that language's version of that field...

    Perhaps you could 1) explain what it is you are trying to do, or 2) export your current database, perform the action you want to see happen to/for a product, then export the database again and compare the records applicable to the change(s), then duplicate those actions/changes to the data that is to be uploaded...

    Now I'm not sure why the ones that do work look so odd in this forum, but they are obviously not straight characters for lack of correct terminology.
    I just uploaded and imported this in open office, I had no errors and everything indicated that it updated properly, but the description still did not update. any other ideas?

    So, I was wrong about how to resolve this issue. It is clear that generally speaking the upload works as some descriptions get uploaded, but some do not. Therefore there is something "wrong" with the ones that do not upload. Fom what can be seen of the records pasted into the forum there is a difference in symbols used after numbers intended to represent dimensions.

    I have asked via PM to be forwarded a copy of a file containing records that don't work and a few that do to try to resolve locally duplicating the conditions identified above. I will post my findings upon resolution. Thank you for your understanding, it seemed like the escape code would work, but again, I was wrong as it didn't.

    Now I'll admit that I don't spend time reading this thread, but that would be because I haven't had any issues with this old version of EP. It still works great. I'm just trying something different than what I've done in the past.
    Let me add the searching the forum has not answered my question either.
    It is good to know that there have been many improvements to EP. Thank you for sharing that.
    I do plan to upgrade to EP the latest version. Perhaps you could briefly describe
    how to layout the cvs sheet columns for (EP 4) to have an item display in a sub category and then also display in the parent category (if possible).

    No disagreement there that even the older version(s) work well. It's one reason I stuck with using it and doing what I could to keep it functional.

    As for searching? Yeah I believe there are some things in the site left to be desired, but it works.

    So, regarding the question at hand. Please correct me if I misunderstood, but it seems as if you would like to have a product listed in a category that has subcategories. If that is the case, ZC doesn't support that. Perhaps though you are asking for a product to be linked?

    Explanation: categories either contain products or sub-categories, not both

    Yes you understood correctly and i agree zen cart does not support that. Which I did not realize until today, never tried it before.
    Is there a way to list the product in a two different subcategories at the same time?
    IE list in, category: apple, subcategory: iphone4. Also list the product in category: apple, subcategory: all apple
    What would that look like on the cvs sheet?

    Yes. In the database, the extra subcategories would be reflected as additional records in the products_to_categories table.

    Been a little while since I have looked at how/if linked products are supported (properly), but may need to include the mastercategories field may be necessary, but when creating a product, the categories are populated with the main/top category followed by the sub-category of that category with a single carat (^) between the two. I thought that if you added a new row with all of the same information, and thenmodified the categories structure then that product would be populated in that subcategory as well... The problem comes in if on export, both "products" are provided, and a change made to the first "product". The second occurrence of the same product will overwrite the original change with a new change when the file is uploaded with both rows still in the database.

    So, in answer to the question if not mistaken, to create a linked product, export the database, change the category information for the product to be linked, import the database/or changed line, and now the product appears in two sub-categories.

    Ugh.. So, it should have been obvious to other users of this module, but it appears that the majority of the issues have been addressed regarding the above partial list of records. Sometimes when thinking the data is working or not, it's possible to overlook other aspects of the file. For example, the column heading for product_name looks correct; however, after further consideration, that data field is a language dependent field. In EP4, language dependent fields are to include a language identifier. Currently that identifier is a number that corresponds with the number adjacent to the language in the admin panel.

    So, in this case, with v_product_name renamed to v_product_name_1, the issue was resolved... Ideally

    This type of problem is avoidable by exporting a file to obtain the headers before making changes to be uploaded.
