I'm trying to import a simple product variation for a product that gives 3 options for attribute "Color".
The instructions given by woothemes.com are extremely brief: "Variations are given attributes via custom fields. To set them, import the attribute via a meta column. E.g. to import an attribute pa_size you would make a column called: meta:attribute_pa_size".
Here's what my imported csv looks like (2 rows, 2 colummns)
When I go to the product with the id 734, there are no changes to the product on the front-end or back-end. When I check the database, I see the changes that were made (but they actually contain significantly different table field content than when I set up a regular attribute/variation for a product).
I've tested tons of different changes, including adding the attribute manually to Products->Attributes before import and manually modifying the database to test imports. Is there any difference between importing attributes versus importing variations in the woocommerce csv importer? They seem to be completely separate components in wp-admin, but the documentation seems to treat them as one. Any help is appreciated!
