Some questions arises when using MAGMI generic SQL datasource. Magmi 0.7.18 displays the following input information when using that plugin:
I tried several times with two approaches. -the first one as described on the image was a direct query to the mysql database containing all rows to feed magento database using magmi. (no files on genericsql/requests) -the second one using .sql file exported from my database and placing that file into (genericsql/requests).
in both cases I received the following statement: 1 warning(s) found Hide Details -> "No Records returned by datasource"
I read that some folks suggest to use input DB Initial Statement: SELECT COUNT(*) AS cnt FROM tablename but in my case it was the same.
question one: using mysql I can query mysql databse directy using the input db information (type, host, name, user, password) or I have to place the sql file in genericsql/requests too? is that my error?
question two: based on the fact that mysql cannot attach files - as MS sql can - which information do I have to place when magmi request user- pass for that sql file?
any help appreciated, I´m stuck with this issue and CSV is not suitable for my needs. brgds
