Orders: Sheet Meta
Using this sheet is optional. ExcelPort will work even if this sheet is missing, as long as you have sheets for Orders, Order Products, Order Options, Order Downloads, Order Totals, Order Histories and Order Vouchers.
This sheet is not regarded during import. Deleting this will not impact the import process in any way.
The Meta sheet is useful for two primary purposes:
- Data Validation: This is where Excel pulls the available values when validating your data. More information on data validation here.
- User reference: For finding Store IDs, Customer Group IDs, Countries, Order Statuses (and others) when populating your XLSX files.
