Hi I am getting the following error when I try to reindex product prices.

Invalid backend model specified: catalog/product_attribute_backend_finishdate

I recently had to remove an extension the prevented this. Store view pricing. I removed store id from all price tables, but no this appears. How can I solve this?

Sounds like the extension you removed created some product attributes you need to remove as well. Check out the database table eav_attribute or the extension's setup scripts to figure out which one(s) it created so you can change/remove them.

FROM `eav_attribute`
WHERE backend_model='catalog/product_attribute_backend_finishdate'
  • Thanks! That helped me find the error. I accidentally missed a step in the uninstall process. Aug 1, 2014 at 15:48
