Following is for Prestashop 1.4.0
Excellent series of YouTube videos posted here:
Pace is very sloooooow, and the accent a bit hard to pick out at times
but still a good resource.
There might be a way to do this with Excel but I had better luck by downloading and installing Open Office.
The trick is to paste the list of product fields into an Open Office spreadsheet and use the "Paste Special Transpose" function to paste the fields names horizontally as field headers.
Then enter what you want into the fields and export as CSV.
Remember to choose "edit filters" in the export options and set your file encoding type to UTF-8, your seperator to sem-colon [;] and text delimiter to quote marks (").
Then in PrestaShop use the Tools, Import functions to upload your file.
When that succeeds, choose the type of CSV file you are importing (Category or Products would be the most common I guess).
TIP! Remember to "Skip 1" so that the import ignores the first title row otherwise you will just confuse the hell out of PrestaShop.
Also, remember to select "Ignore the column" if the column is blank or you might get some Fatal error. Dont panic if you do.
Importing Features in PrestaShop is a bit non-intuitive but its a breeze when you know what the workflow is. First you need to have your unique Feature description column names. Then in the import process you need to assign each column the field name "Features". THEN and second box will open up allowing you to input the actual Feature name and press OK.
NOTE: I haven't found a way to import attachments associated with products yet (i.e. downloadable PDF files etc). Will update this thread if I find out.
