MANDATORY COLUMNS FOR DATA
These columns are mandatory to enter data in - if you don't do this - the import can not work.
- Style Name

- Supplier ID - if it is on your style it's mandatory
- Color ID

FIELDS THAT CAN BE UPDATED
With this update - it is only possible to update Style Custom Fields that are Per color.
HOW TO UPDATE CUSTOM FIELDS
You can update any kind of Custom Field via the Update functionality as long as it is Per Color.
The syntax for updating Custom Fields depends on what kind of Custom Field you want to update and what kind of data you have available.
For most Custom Fields you need to use the syntax CF:ID.
From the illustration above your syntax would be "CF:4711" in the header.
In the column, you will then enter the values you want for that Custom Field - say "11" since it is a Numeric one.
For Allowed Value Custom Fields (and Hierarchy Custom Fields) you can use two types of syntax.
The one just explained and one of type CFID:ID - let us look at two examples.
- For the CF:ID your Column header would be "CF:12: and the value in the column would be "Yellow flag"
- If instead you only have the Allowed ID to work with your syntax would be "CFID:12" in the header and in the column, you will then enter the ID - in this case, "3"
We advise that you do not use " " (space) in any of the IDs because it might cause problems if you have to integrate with your ERP system.
If you need to add multiple per color values for the same Custom Field - you will need to add one line for each color in your excel sheet.
