i copy weight attribute value to another product attribute named general_weight by this php code:

require_once  "app/Mage.php";

 Step2: get Product Collection filter by Saleable
$collection = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_collection')->addAttributeToSelect('weight');

foreach($collection as $product){
/*$product->getWeight() is not given the value then used 


$product->getResource()->saveAttribute($product, 'general_weight');


my weight attribute has for decimals like: 90.0000 . i want to remove those decimals from general_weight attribute and add a suffix to it like (KG). at the end i want 90.0000 from weight attribute to be copied to general_weight attribute this way: 90 KG


In case your weight attribute is type of string:

$val = preg_replace('/\..*$/', 'KG', $product->getWeight());

or in case of float:

$val = floor($product->getWeight()) . 'KG';

    May i know, which location i need to edit.... – zus Nov 22 '17 at 5:14
  • The location you output the weight. – user487772 Nov 22 '17 at 9:36

Assuming that all the values are float ending in '.0000' then try

$general_weight = $product->getWeight() * 1 . 'kg';
  • Sorry for being picky but this can produce something like 1.5kg in case weight attribute is stored as float while initial requirement was to drop decimal part. – user487772 Apr 27 '15 at 18:41
  • could you pls guide me by default, where i can change in my Magento file. – zus Nov 22 '17 at 12:12
