Product Import: Importing a field in product table


The field has to be present in the database



We would like to import a field in product table.



To add the field to the list of available fields to import, click on the add_dis.png in the 'Add a field' panel and enter the following information:

What is the field ID?: my_field (has to correspond exactly to the field name in the table)


Sc creates the field, you now need to populate the grid with:

ID: my_field
Name: my_field


From the Advanced Properties panel on the right handside:

- select the menu Import Combinations Process and enter:

if ($switchObject == 'my_field' && $GLOBALS['import_value'] != '') {
    $value = $GLOBALS['import_value'];
    $sql = "SELECT * FROM " . _DB_PREFIX_ . "product WHERE id_product='" . (int)$id_product . "' ";
    $pdt_row = Db::getInstance()->ExecuteS($sql);
    if (!empty($pdt_row[0]["id_product"])) {
        $TODO[] = "UPDATE " . _DB_PREFIX_ . "product SET `".$switchObject."`='" . psql($value) . "' WHERE id_product='" . (int)$id_product . "'";


You will need to adapt this code to your needs.


Exit the editing window.

The new field can now be included in your import mapping.
