    You misunderstood. What I'm saying is that this function is IN EP but not DBIO. I'm asking if that was intentionally left out, if I missed the function in DBIO that's already there, or if it's planned and not yet implemented.

    @badarac, there's a Products handler that enables you to import/export any fields present in the products/products_descriptions tables.

    Good suggestion; let me see what's up with that.

    The way it seems to work though is it needs an existing product id and/or model. That would seem to indicate that it can only update information for existing products. Am I wrong?

    If the product is not found (by id or model), it's added during any import processing. You just need a unique model number to identify the product.

    I exported the products, deleted all but one row (and the headers), deleted the product id, and made a unique model number. When I import the csv file with the single record it gives an error[*] products.products_id, line #2: Value () is not an integer. Is there a unique integer value that must be entered in the products_id column? Bug?

    Installed on 1.5.5e btw. Site is installed in a subdirectory for testing so I can make changes without harming anything if you want me to test a change.

    Yes, I did misread the statement placing the wrong emPHAsis on something missing from EP instead of something in EP considered missing from DbIO as a variant of EP.

    My guess would be that the products_id column would need to be removed to support adding such a new product or a value of 0 maybe. Otherwise it identifies that there is nothing present as reported.

    One of those was a good guess!

    To insert a product via import, you'll need to have both the v_products_id and v_products_model fields present in the to-be-imported CSV. Set the products_id value to 0 (not blank) and the products_model to the new product's unique model number.
