Read this first and make sure you checked all steps: csvimproved.com/support/getting-started

Don't just say it doesn't work but describe in detail what is happening and add the following information:
* Version of the extension you are using
* CSVI version (Latest is not a version number)
* Sample of the file being imported
* A copy of the template you are using. Use the maintenance menu to create a backup of your template
* Collected debug information

Without this information you won't get a useful answer. If no debug log is attached, you will get a request to post it.

Where to get the debug information?

A tutorial ( csvimproved.com/support/questions-and-answers/390-how-to-collect-debug-information ) has been written to help you collect your debug information.

Hello,

These items aren't changing very much if at all, then a manual addition can be done.

This way I don't think we have to worry too much about the delay, especially if the majority of the products are just updates. You could even specify in the template to skip any existing records, that way only new products would be added and existing ones are left alone.

I'd hate to start all over.

Given that the products change very little it might be an idea to run the big import and go from there. It might take some time but at least they are in and any subsequent import should be faster, especially if you skip existing products. If you do not skip them, then they would just be updates and not needing to insert anything into the asset table.

Kind regards,

RolandD

So to clarify, if I skip existing, but there is a change in the data, it would recognize that and import anyway? That is one of my issues. If a price changed or a description would it still import the modified info. Of course, we can unpublish the item if it is no longer available.

No, existing data will not be updated but only the new products will be imported.

Kind regards,

Just wanted to give you a heads up. I started a VM test. I will report back to you after a few trials.

Hi Roland,

Just wanted you to know I have successfully imported all the products 12491 in 11 minutes with image processing. Without it was about 5.

Huge difference. I wish I knew then what I know now :).
