How to use Magmi with a CSV to clear an attribute

Hi guys,

any ideas on how I can use csv with magmi to clear the contents of an attibute for a sku.

basically we have identified quite a few sku’s which have an incorrect url_key value.

i’ve got a csv ready with 2 columns, sku and url_key but what value do I put to clear the contents of the url_key.

I’ve tried to keep it blank but that doesn’t change the content, just leaves it in place

any help is appreciated

This is definitely one for Matt who is our resident Magmi expert. I will ping him and ask him to get back to you on this.

2nd the vote on knowing this as I need to clear an attribute as well.
I read somewhere to read up on the magmi empty values documentation but that didn’t have the answer
