Importing a CSV? 8 Years ago Karma: 0  
I would like to import a csv file with my own information. Like BookID, Title, Author, Publisher but I don't have a ISBN#. However, when I import the csv file I can see see the BookID #'s and Title, Author and Publisher headings show up as links but no information under them. It seems like the title, author and publisher that I have in my csv file don't import.

Or if I just import a csv file with the BookID's (340 books)I can see the all the #'s after the import but when I go back and click on books there're no #'s.

Can you help me?

Our situation is that we have about 50,000 books w would like to import but the majority of them don't have a ISBN #.

Please advise.

For correct CSV import you must first do export, check exist format, do yours data exactly so format.
For ISBN - you must set any number. If ISBN - not real - you will can't renew these data from Amazon
For BookID - best set any unique number, e.g. You can find bigger namber in yours DataBase and do auto increment for that column start from bigger BookID from yours table
