    I did not remove the entry ID column. All of the fields appeared to be mapped correctly. The only thing I updated was the category for the listings that needed to be in the ‘restaurants’ category. I do have to do this process again for the other five categories I have entries for. I will see if this happens again.

    Hi Steven

    Doing the All Export did help by making it easier to edit the categories via CSV but when I imported the edited CSV file, the edited entries did not copy over the previous entries, creating duplicate listings for every entry. I need to do this process again because I have multiple categories to add entries for so is there a way to make sure the old entries are copied over?

    Thanks.

    Okay here’s what I’m trying to do and you can tell me the best way to handle it:

    I have a website that has multiple directories, each directory his it’s own category ID. I’m importing the directory listings for each category as a CSV file. I originally used the CSV import option but each of the categories have hundreds of listings. If I use CSV import I am having to open each entry and manually update the category ID which will take lots of time with hundreds of entries. Is there a way to have the CSV file import the entries with the correct category ID? Do I use CSV import? Do I use the import tab under Tools? What is the best way to import?

    Thanks.
