During Import - Choosing between Fixed Values & Column Headers

Populating line items with values. Would both give the result?


When to choose what?

Yes, both will give you the same result when working with a single column of values.

A fixed value can be used when you are attempting to import data into a single line item. This ensure that regardless of what the column header is titled within your source file, the values will be loaded to the specified line item.

You must use column headers when you are trying to populate multiple line items in the same import process. By default the import action will attempt to match the column header names to the line items, this mapping can be updated within the import action setup (manual mapping).
