I recently had a bit of a problem importing records into Drupal using the “Node Import” module. The problem was trying to import data into a field that had a series of checkbox options that allowed more than one of which to be selected.
The pipe-delimited CSV file that I was using looked something like:
"string"|"string"|"checkbox integer 1,checkbox integer 2, checkbox integer 3"|"string"
But for some inexplicable reason the data just wouldn’t import. After many failed attempts and a fair bit of Googling, I stumbled across a solution in the Drupal forums. What I had to do was patch the module with the file: optionswidgets.inc from CVS and drop it into the node_import module directory
And the import continues…
