HI

How can I associate new simple products to an existing magento configurable product via Magmi . The configurable product already has some simple products associated to it and is live on ebay so all I want is to associate several more simple products but instead magmi is deleting all previously associated products and only leaves newly associated products.
THis is an example of my csv layout :
sku simples_skus colour type
rocker_top_relax_configurable simple4,simple5 beige,pink configurable

In magento I already have 4 simple product associated to my configurable product rocker_top_relax_configurable so after my magmi import I have to end up with 6 associated products (4existing+2new)

colour is the configurable attribute , it is obviously the same attribute that is already used for the existing associated simple products , otherwise it will not work.

My question is : How do I ADD these two simple products to the already 4 existing ones not REPLACE them with the 4 existing ones.

Hi Silvian,

This is one for Matt as he is the Magmi wizard, so I will ask him to take a look for you.

Hi Silvian,

From what you’ve said, you’ll need to add the previous stock numbers and basic information to the CSV file to add them to the main configurable product.

Thanks for reply.
When I do this import via magento dataflow it is working fine , I mean , it is not deleteing the existing ones . why this is not possible in magmi ?
It is too time consuming to manually add them all the time , maybe there is a workaround , I prespune a lot of people have same issue when they need to add some pore simple products to a configurable product that already have some simple products associated with it.
