Products in Basic Mode: Sheet Meta
Using this sheet is optional. ExcelPort will work even if this sheet is missing, as long as you have a sheet for Products.
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 Category IDs, Store IDs, allowed Attribute values (and many more) when populating your XLSX files.
