If you want to import your item categories into catalog360, you need to create a CSV file in the right format. You can use a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel for this and save it as a CSV (comma separated values) format file.
Alternatively, if you already have categories in your online catalog, you can export these to a CSV file and amend them, or add new records before importing the updates. For more information about this, see the topic Exporting categories to a CSV file.
Each column must be separated by a comma. Exporting a spreadsheet from Excel to a CSV format file will do that for you.
Note: Do not include column headings in your CSV file. The headings below are just for your information.
|Column||Description||Data type||Max length in characters|
|Category Number||Each category is identified by a unique number or code. This is the content of the Code field when you create a new category.||Alphanumeric||100|
|Category Name||The description for the category. This is the content of the Title field when you create a new category.||Alphanumeric||255|
|Parent Category Number||If the category is a subcategory of another, this is the code of the parent category.||Alphanumeric||100|
