Hi Guys

So i’ve been trying to add products to categories in my store using the category_ids column but its not being recognised when i import through Magmi. I’ve double checked the numbers are correct from my store categories to my csv. The warning i receive in Magmi is:

warning:Invalid category ids found for sku Ahl098/2:

Any ideas?

Thanks Wayne

Hello there Wayne. The best thing is to check again on the coding if you have it properly. The error that is showing is stating that the Category ID is wrong, so most likely the issue is there. It would be best to recheck the Category ID to see where is the issue there.
