Good afternoon,

I have a couple of basic questions;

  1.  Change the class on item
  2.  Change/replace the existing description to a new one
  3. Add Alternate vendors and part numbers to the stock item profile
  4. Add weight and volume
  5. Add MSRP
  6. Add a data to a bunch of attributes..

I would like to do this in one import scenario.  Does anyone have template?  Or possible can lead me to how to update the class and description.  Add alternate vendors/parts is missing something?  Attached is the sample/test file.  Below is screen of the beginning scenario.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

@EvanG , 
Here is a sample Import Scenario to update the item Class & Description & to add a new vendor to the Item. 
The key is you need to answer the Question (dialog box) that pops up when trying to change the Item Class. In my example, I answered YES to override the defaults.

Just an update.  The dialogue box is not working.  When I run the import scenario, I can an error about confirming that I want to update the defaults.  Any advice? 


Thank you
