A little help on importing a db and catagories please..

When I started my shop I did not plan for the next one - consequently on building the second I 'inherited' all the products from the first one.

To address this I install XLECOM again in a directory xlecom_xxx1 and imported all the essential - dbase, category, themes etc.

A problem has occurred in that where I have locked the product not to show quantity in ad - it is still appearing whereas it didn't before I moved the dbase - I can still cure this by having it checked but this seems a bit defeatist - can anyone assist?

Thanks - John

John:

You don't really need to perform a second full installation of the program and do all the exporting and importing as you stated.

The easy way to create a second store is to do the following:
If you want to keep the same parameters of first store for the second store, all you have to do is make a copy of the program. Just copy the entire xlecom folder to a new location and then change the file path locations within the XLEcom.xls file to point to the new locations where you will be storing the file assets. The file locations are accessed via the Setup utility on the Product Design sheet.

You should also read the following topic for setting up multiple stores: Saving a New Store / Multiple Stores
