[resolved] Problem with bulk import (2 posts)

    Dear Mr. Heller,

    I have another question: when I upload a CSV file to my collection, even though the plugin says that every entry of the file has been accepted (let's say, 100 from a file containing 100 entries) the number of items actually present in the site and searchable is smaller (50 out of 100). Do you have any idea what could be causing this? I don't think it is a problem with the format of the CSV, since it displays no error; and I have no way to know which of the entries have actually been accepted (therefore the clogging of the collection of which in my other topic...).

    I don't know it it could be related, but if I export the whole collection present in the site as a CSV file, the barcodes are sometimes quoted, sometimes not. This causes some entries to be bundled together in a single line in the file: subsequent entries starting with quoted barcodes appear as a single cell in the CSV file, while every entry starting with unquoted barcode has a separate line. Entries appearing together (that is, entries that have quoted barcodes) appear normally when searched.

    best regards,

    OK, there was a bug in the barcode generation code -- it was re-cycling used barcodes instead of createing new ones. The updated version fixes that problem.
