Hello,

The solution can be to :
- Export your products using the Exports button via "HikaShop->Products"
- Fill the csv file with your values
- Import it again

Kind regards,

Hi,

The problem is the type of your custom field.
The type "custom text" is a type which allows you to have text between other custom field inputs on forms.
So there is no column in the database corresponding to the custom field.
You need to delete it and recreate it with the type "text". Then, you'll be able to use the column name of the custom field in your CSV to import data into it.
