Got a quick question: What is the best free iPage web host on the internet? Thanks for any response. Another quick question... Hey,.

I sell products with the dropship method with OsCommerse. The company that dropships for me has a system that automatically updates my stock levels to their current inventory via FTP. They send me a .txt file with the product quantities in it. What I need is someone to make Oscomerse take this information from the .txt file and show product quantity just like it normally does, but get the quantity FROM the .txt file. I want it to be automated once I set it up. I want Oscommerse to automatically check to see if the inventory file has been replaced with a new one.

(it is tab delimited):.

Summary of what every column is:.

All that matters to me is column 1 and 2, the rest is useless!.

Column1: SKU Sorted by item number (SKU).

Column2: available (current, unadjusted, available quantity) This is what is available for you to sell.

Column3: openpo (quantity on order) This is what we have on order with our supplier.

Column4: exprecdate (earliest expected receipt date for orders) This is only a best guess when we’ll be receiving these items.

Column5: status (D- Discontinued; O- Special Orders; P- Pre-Sell; S- Stock) This tells you if an item is something we stock, has been discontinued, can be pre-ordered, or it is a special order..

Column6: cost (dealer cost) This is the cost you will pay us, exclusive of any fees.

Column7: msrp (retail price) This is the price suggested by the manufacturer that you sell at.

I don't care about all the other info in the .txt file. All I want is the product number and the product quantity. (obviously because The product quantity must be associated with the product number)..

Hey,.

Anyone know what a CRON job is? Someone said it might help me...

Comment #3

Once you have your program that updates the inventory based on the file received, you then define a cron job to do this automatically..

Cron is a unix program that will look for jobs to execute on a set time or every x hh/mm or so. It's to automate repeating tasks...

Comment #4

Does anyone think that this is actually possibe? To make this process totally automated without having to manually import every time? Can I do it without a cron job? Will it require extensive modification of oscommerse? Thank You for your input thus far! I really do love this forum!..
