5 stars

I'm using this extension to import several hundred products into my VirtueMart shops. It works perfectly. It could be improved adding the possibility to export templates.
I recommend this extension!

The CSVI Field Mapper helps you to map your fields against CSVI fields. One of the most daunting tasks you have to deal with when setting up a new import is to match your own fields with the CSVI fields. To give you a hand, the CSVI Field Mapper has been created.

What is the CSVI Field Mapper?

CSVI Field Mapper is a tool to help you create your template with the correct CSVI fields.

How does the CSVI Field Mapper work?

In short, you upload a small sample of the actual file you want to import and CSVI will read the column headers from this file. CSVI will then present these column headers in a table with a dropdown beside it where you can choose the CSVI field you want to link it to. Once you are done, it can look like this:

Mapped fields

When you are done with the mapping of the fields, you can create a template of this by clicking on the Create Template button.

Create template

 

Creating a field map

To create a field map we start by going to Components -> CSVI Pro -> Field mapper and you get the field mapper list:

Field mapper list

Now click on the New button to create a new field map and you get the new screen:

Field mapper new

Now the form needs to be filled out:

Name

Give your field map a name

File

Select the file on your computer that you want to map. Take these points into consideration:

  • The first line of the field must contain the field names
  • The file cannot have Mac line-endings
  • Don't upload your full file if it is a large file. We are only using the first line of the file.

Action

Select whether you want to do an import or export

Component

Select for which component you want to do the import/export

Operation

Select what kind of operation you want to perform

After these fields are filled out, click on Save. This will create the field map and process your file.

Mapping the fields

Map fields table

After the field map has been saved you can see a table like the screenshot. On the left you see the field names from your file and on the right the available field names of CSVI. CSVI does not match the fields automatically, you will have to choose which fields it belongs to. In the screenshot you can see that the field sku has been linked to the product_sku field, the field picture has been linked to file_url and so on.

Do the same for your fields and click on Save & Close, this brings you back to the field map list.

Create a template

With your field map ready, you can now create a template by clicking on the icon in the Template column.

Create template

This will create a new template based on your field map settings that you can then use for import or export.

Start import and export your files with CSV Improved
