Hi,

I have just added a further attribute (OEM code) to the default settings in Magento. although when I come to update any of the configurable product listings the field to update this information is missing. It is available though on the standard simple products that are not associated to a configurable product code.

I have missed something here?

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Michael,

I’m guessing that this attribute has been set for simple products only.

Go to the attribute in catalog > attributes > manage attributes and see if its been assigned to just simple products.

Hi Matt,

Yep that’s the problem, I have manually gone through all the other attribute sets I have and assign the new attribute to each.

Although I was under the impression that because the additional attribute sets are derived from the default setting that any additions that were implemented to the this then it would automatically update any of the additional sets.

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Michael,

Ace!

Oh and the reason why I knew that, we did a tutorial a few days ago and set an attribute for configurable products only, then the simples didn’t match to the parents, doh!
