Is there a best practice for a product export in Magento ( CE) for a given sku list? It should be a full export with all attributes. It's required for an import into another Magento shop.

The dataflow profile doesn't provide this feature. So, I guess I have to do the export programmatically?

Any ideas are welcome.

  • There is no way to set a list of product skus for the export. Or I just don't see it?

  • You should be able to easily use sku as a filter: lero9.co.nz/magento-tips/… Jun 3, 2015 at 15:09
  • The sku-filter has the hint "starts with" I guess I can't enter a list of skus

  • Not sure (don't have time atm to look), but you should be able to do a comma delimited list or something, or add more skus... if not ditch excel (which I never use bc it's row limitation) and try something like delimitware.com Jun 3, 2015 at 15:23

I've still not used Dataflow Profiles and any native import/export feature of Magento. But indeed, you could do it programmatically by browsing the products listed in the given sku list, and export the products and its attributes.

  • And if I have a million products? I'm going to browse them all? Jun 3, 2015 at 15:09
  • Well, if you need to choose specific products, i don't see another way.

  • Ya thats your problem, we have to many products and Excel can't handle it to filter by sku after the export.
