View Full Version : Trouble importing parent/child products

11-09-2012, 03:21 AM
I'm trying to help a friend import some products in to a new store and we're having problems with parent/child product sets.
It's all a bit strange, the child products are assigned to the parent products by the ischildofproductcode field and it's only partially working.
If we import a product with 4 children, in some cases it's fine and others only 2 or 3 will show on the front end.

The options that don't show up are there in the database and they have the correct ischildofproductcode value. If we delete and re create the missing options manually they work fine.

The catalog is about 5000 SKUs, does anyone have any experience or tips they'd be willing to share on importing large numbers of parent/child products?

Also, what exactly does the Create All Inventory Control Grids option in mantenance do? Should I use this?

Many thanks in advance for any help.
