I have data feed from a supplier that contains product information such as Part#’s, product name, Category, Price/cost, MAP price, weight, quantity on hand, MFG name, Image name, etc. I need this information imported into my OSCommerce site at least once a day. So far I have been manually converting the raw data feed info into a format that can be used by the OSC Easy Populate contribution but I need to have this process automated and completed at least once a day so inventory numbers are correct.
Here is information provided by the datafeed provider.

I also need this done.
Is I'm also going to need one additional MySql field populated in my database that Easy Populate doesn't currently handle. In the raw data feed there is a field called MAP (Map Price) that I will need imported into the Mysql products table as products_map. (Pretty easy, but that need to be done also)
