XCart Import Error: Option name is blank


I'm hoping someone can help me with an error message...

I have used the XCart upload format for my product options probably a dozen times between 2 other Ecwid sites with no issues. However, I'm now trying to upload to my current site and keep getting the error message "Option name is blank".

Not sure what I've done differently but cannot get it to upload even after reading other threads. The csv file is attached. ANY help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

CV

Hi,

Thank you for the file. I've analyzed it and found there were several errors.
If you open it in a text editor, the errors will be visible. For ex:

[PRODUCT_OPTIONS]
!PRODUCTCODE,!CLASS,!TYPE,"!AVAIL,",!PRICE_MODIFIE R,! MODIFIER_TYPE,!OPTION_AVAIL,!OPTION,,,,,
EM0850,Color,Y,Y,0,$,Y,Black,,,,,
,,Y,Y,0,$,Y,Pink,,,,,
,,Y,Y,0,$,Y,Red,,,,,
,,Y,Y,0,$,Y,White,,,,,

- odd comma after AVAIL
- a space between ! and MODIFIER_TYPE
- several commas in the end of each line mean additional empty columns, not necessary ones

I've corrected your file. Please check the attachment optns_corrected.csv, try importing this file.
