First create the attribute in the admin area by navigating to Catalog->Attributes->Manage Attributes. Then in your csv file add the attribute ID to the header of the column containing the value. Also ensure that you have a SKU column and then import the CSV using dataflow profiles but ensure that you match the 2 columns to the corresponding attributes. An example of the CSV could be:

"SKU001","New Attribute Value"
"SKU002","New Attribute Value"
"SKU003","New Attribute Value"

    You can create a new profile or you can just use the standard product import/export dataflow profiles. Just make sure you map the fields in your CSV using the mapped fields option. Hope this helps you out. Feb 18, 2015 at 7:47
