Hi,
i would like to export every order to a csv file with the mass action - that already seems to work as it should.
Problem:
the attached system that should import the csv-file needs a specific order of the columns and specific header lines in the csv.
i suppose it should be pretty easy for hikashop to change this details of the csv file?
but i was not able to find the corresponding file or the settings for that.
thanks.

Hello,

You can use the trigger "onBeforeOrderExport" in order to change dynamically the content during the export :
www.hikashop.com/support/documentation/6...#onBeforeOrderExport

And you can use a view override in order to change other elements during the export.
That's in the view where it will be easier to change the header ; or at least to "translate" the header names.

thanks for your reply, but its too complicated for me :)
the onBeforeOrderExport has something to do with "how to develop a hikashop plugin"!? much too complicated.
the second point sounds good to me, "override" the headers.
this should work fro me: eg. override "item1_order_product_shipping_price" with "shipping price"
but i don't know where to configure the overrides?

Hi,

You can override view files via the menu Display>Views.
The one you want to edit is the file "export" of the view "order".

hi nicolas,
i checked the view file orders->export, but i cannot make the overrides there.
that file does only describe the logically behavior of the export process.
but where can i find the text of the header lines to override or change them?

Hi,

It's also there.
This code handles the display of the header:

if($maxProd && !empty($productFields)) {
		$first = array();
		$o = reset($this->orders);
		foreach($o as $key => $val) {
			if(is_array($val))
				continue;
			$first[] = $key;
		}
		$o = null;
		for($i=1;$i<=$maxProd;$i++){
			foreach($productFields as $field){
				$first[] = 'item'.$i.'_'.$field;
			}
		}
	} else {
		$first = array_keys(get_object_vars(reset($this->orders)));
	}
	$export->writeLine($first);

Hi nicholas,
i am affraid, we are not talking about the same thing!?
for example, i cannot see the text "item1_order_product_name" in your code shown above!?

Hi,

That's because the column names are generated dynamically.
The display of the item1_order_product_name column is handled by the line of code:

$first[] = 'item'.$i.'_'.$field;
Remove that line from that file and you'll see that it will remove the itemX_YYY column names from the CSV files when you export your orders.

So I do believe that we're talking about the same thing. It's just that it is not as easy to change as you believed.

Hi,

Thanks for the input. Yes, CSV improved is a great way to import/export data with HikaShop. So if you need more custom things than what HikaShop provides, it can be a life saver.
