I cannot understand how to format my file so that I can import item codes with pricing levels. I have set the groups I need in User Manager. I have exported the database and can see what it is supposed to look like but using attached file I am scratching my head how to set this up.

Hi,

You should have instead:

product_code;price_value;price_access
ABT110X45N;76|68.4|62.7|60.8|57;,2,|,11,|,12,|,13,|,14,
... etc ...

Many thx Nicolas. I will detail my answer if it is allowable. it is not a Hikashop matter but people making CSV files need to know how to get the data to export correctly as you described. my client gave me spreadsheet showing their pricing levels.

NEW CODE	Price Level A	Price Level B	Price Level D	Price Level E	Price Level F
ABT110X45N	$76.00	$68.40	$62.70	$60.80	$57.00
ABT110X45V	$74.50	$67.05	$61.46	$59.60	$55.88
ABT125X45N	$117.00	$105.30	$96.53	$93.60	$87.75
as per Hikashop documentation, User Groups are made up naming the different pricing groups / levels [ID's shown below 2, 11, 12 etc].
here is my final exportable data that works on my dev site.
product_code	price_value	price_access
ABT110X45N	76|68.4|62.7|60.8|57	,2,|11,|12,|13,|14
ABT110X45V	74.5|67.05|61.46|59.6|55.88	,2,|11,|12,|13,|14
ABT125X45N	117|105.3|96.53|93.6|87.75	,2,|11,|12,|13,|14
ABT125X45V	104|93.6|85.8|83.2|78	,2,|11,|12,|13,|14
to get from one format to the other I had to do some data manipulation in excel. I used CONCATENATE to merge cell data:
=CONCATENATE(B2,"|",C2,"|",D2,"|",E2,"|",F2)
this is what I had to discover.

Hi,

Note that you're missing some commas. Make sure that you have a comma before and after each user group id, like I did in my example.
This is done so to improve MySQL queries efficiency.
If you don't, it won't work properly in some cases.
