Hi guys,
I have been trying to create an import via magmi that will allow me to use category ids (12,13,14) as the value. with the aim of having all products on one line each, unlike magneto which would require multiple lines to place multiple category’s.
I tried changing the category header to category_id and put category_reset header with value of 0 as on the magmi wiki, but not much understandable on that wiki.

Any ideas how I would proceed to do this? links?

Hi Paul,

See here…..categories

The column header should be “category_ids”, although I must admit I have never used category ID’s just the category full paths as they’re human readable :)
