Import products from Excel
Import is a great way to quickly populate or update your database with price information. If you have an Excel spreadsheet with a list of products, you can easily import them into SuperOffice.
Before you begin
We recommend that you contact SuperOffice Support to back up the SuperOffice database before you import large amounts of data.
Before you start your import, prepare the Excel file. Checklist:
- The Excel spreadsheet should as a minimum contain columns with Product Code, Product Name, and List Price.
- Make sure to add a unique product code for each row as a duplicate key.

Adjust the import
As the Excel spreadsheet may contain anything from just a few to a large number of columns, it is important that the columns with data you want to import are linked to the correct SuperOffice field.

Find the column containing the name of the products, click the (No Selection) column title and select Product: Name.
Find the column containing the product code, click the (No Selection) column title and select Product: Code.
Select the SuperOffice fields for the rest of the columns in the table. Skip the columns you do not want to import.
