It is easy to import item records into Artisan. The process is the same as posted in the general import article.
Starting from an Excel Spreadsheet (.XLS or .XLSX) file. Create column headers with the following information.
|ITEMCODE||Leave Blank to have Artisan auto-generate an item code.
HOWEVER, if you leave this field blank, when you repeat the process you will get yet another new item record.
If you want to update existing items, you must include the Item Code field, UPC, or Vendor’s P/N and Vendor.
|IDESC||Item Description (Required for NEW records.)|
|CATEGORY||Item Category Code (Required for NEW records)|
|VENDOR||Item’s Vendor Code (Required or use “NONE”)|

|SHIPWEIGHT||The shipping weight. Not required, but very useful.|
|BRIEFDESC||Brief Description, mostly used for SEO metadata.|
