updating META Description in simple products with attributes
Rob Wood
February 2, 2017 - 11:24 pm


Is it possible to update META Descriptions of simple products that have attributes. And alot of simple product with attributes which are child products of configurable products, which I think makes a difference.

Do I need to use the configurable csv layout to succeed in updating? Or can I use the simple product CSV to update META Descriptions?

I won’t be updating any configurable product it will only be simple products with attributes.

Many thanks in advance

Thanks for that, I spent so much time trying to figure our how to complete using Magmi, I gave up and went down the ‘Magento Import’ route..slow and a little annoying (but thats me)…but it works :)
