I have virtuemart 3 installed on joomla 2.5 trying to export to joomla 3 and virtuemart 3. Export file attached. When I try and import I see the list of products but they are all red and say not imported missing short description. None of my products have short descriptions is there no way of eliminating that field in import.
By the way Instructions are not very detailed so they were no help. Please need help.

You need Joomla 3 for Virtuemart 3.
There was a pre-release VM 2.9 which ran with Joomla 2.6.

Last time I checked Product Short Description was a required field in Virtuemart.

So,

You could edit
administrator/components/com_vm_products_csv/vm_products_csvUtils.php
finding
product_short_desc
in the fields array
public static $csv_fields
and then changing
'required' => true,
to
'required' => false,

HOWEVER that would cause your current situation where a field required by Virtuemart is empty.

Or, you could copy the
product_name
column to the
product_short_desc
column.

Or, you could fill out the Short Descriptions.

Kind regards.
