Don't just say it doesn't work but describe in detail what is happening and add the following information:
* VirtueMart version
* CSVI version (Latest is not a version number)
* Sample of the file being imported
* Collected debug information
Without this information you won't get a useful answer. If no debug log is attached, you will get a request to post it.
I have a need to be able to export selected articles and categories from a Joomla 2.5 site, and then import that content into other websites. It appears that CSVI should have the ability to do this, but in looking at the documentation, I cannot seem to see a way to do it. CSVI seems to be focused more on virtuemart and other extension content.
Can someone provide some guidance on (1) if this extension can address my need, and (2) if so, how would I go about setting this up?
Thanks in advance,

In theory it should be possible with CSVI but I wouldn't dare to recommend it since you are dealing with a lot of table constraints and dependencies. This option is actually planned either for the next CSVI Pro release or the one after.
It is possible to an extend but you will have to import both the articles and the assets data. The assets data is something complicated, have a look at the assets table and you will see what I mean. That is why in my previous post I said I don't dare to recommend it.
I'm really happy with this extension. It does what it's supposed to do.
I experienced an easy and clean install and it was fairly easy to learn how to use the extension.
I was able to make an export of Seblod 2 data with it (unfortunately Seblod 2 doesn't have an export feature). Even more so, I was able to add a frontend menu to do a one-click export of my data. Great!
I really like the Replacements feature, which lets you replace the data of your fields with some more user-friendly data. Oh, I really wish the multiple replacements feature wasn't only available in the Pro version :)
My only complaint is that the component probably needs better documentation. A good "Getting started" video would come a long way.
