Category Import & Export

RazorCart > Import Export

The Category Import allows you to import new categories or update existing products from an CSV file.  A good way to start the import is to enter a couple categories using the UI and then export.  Exporting gives you a good sample CSV file to work with.  When importing your categories the program will lookup categories by the category ID, if the category currently exists in the database the import program will update the existing category and if the category ID does not exist the import program will insert a new record in the database.  The ParentID can be a comma separated list of Category ID's to support importing multi parent categories.  A big time saver!!
