Magmi Imports

Magmi Imports

Magmi imports are run using Magmi; a tool to import a massive amount of products seamlessly into Magento using CSV files. They need to be formatted correctly in order to import products successfully. As a minimum you should ensure that the ‘sku’ and ‘type’ columns are entered into the CSV file prior to any import.

A piece of advice for helping to debug Magmi errors, always check that you don’t have spaces before or after any of the critical Magmi columns, that includes the ‘sku’ and ‘type’ columns as having a product with ‘simple’ will result in the simple product being uploaded with the type missing and cause all sorts of havoc with associating it to a grouped or configurable product in an upload.
