What problem are you having? We can probably help figure it out. :)

If you reaaly want to pay to have someone do it, you can search the web for Froogle submission services, or you can try posting in the Commercial Exchange Forum [webmasterworld.com].

Good luck!

pmac,

my main problem is that the url is missing from the cvs for excel I downloaded from phpmyadmin.

I have 4000/5000 items all with different urls and to add it manually is a problem.

thanks

Is the url listed in the database? I would think that, if it is, it may just be a problem with the export you are doing.

unfortunately the url is not listed.

only the item number is listed.

the correct url of the product would be the url plus the item number.

thanks

if the url part that is missing it the same for all your items you could do a little excel magic and have it inserted into a whole column then concatenate the that column together with your item number and away you go. Should take about 2 minutes to do.

i have this exact same problem.... do you use a wysiwyg editor to create your pages? or is it all in a database somewhere?

personally, i use microsoft bCentral, and we are able to download a csv file, but it doesn't have the urls either, so what i do is:

1. go into frontpage and pull all the product pages into a new page, which creates links to each page...

2. go into HTML view, and find all the <a href> tags, which link to the individual pages (not external links, but i'll get to that in a sec)... then i use the find/replace function to remove all data except the partial urls.

3. copy the partial urls into a new excel workbook, and again use the find/replace function to add in the first of the web address.

voilá, you have all the urls in an excel workbook, now you just copy/paste the column into the csv file, and save the properly formatted file as a tab-delimited file...

personally, it takes me about 2-3hours to go from the csv file i am able to download from bCentral to the properly configured and formatted tab-delimited file that froogle wants...

if you have any further questions/clarifications on the subject, don't hesitate to post them here, or send me a sticky mail.

I downloaded a cvs file for excel from my database with phpmyadmin.

there is not problem to add an url. The problem is when you have to do it to 4000/10000 items all with different urls.
I'm looking for a way to do it inside excel to all the items at once
