While importing items in ERPNext, the formatting in the item description does not get imported.
I manually added an item description to an Item and exported it for reference.
then I added other items and their descriptions in the same format as it was exported, to the excel sheet for import to ERPNext.
When I uploaded this to ERPnext I get this as description
I tried it with descriptions with table, bold text, nothing works.
Try with a quote delimited CSV file. The **Length:** is markdown syntax, so unlikely it will work the same as HTML
Thank You for your reply,
So, this is what I did, I exported the sample item, as a .csv file.
there was HTML in it.
So, I wrote HTML Description for all the other data and, imported it.
But I guess there should be a fix for this ! for mass items Import into ERPNext, it would be next to impossible to write HTML for all the item descriptions.
Glad that it is working.
For mass imports, you could probably write a script that converts a simple text file into a formatted HTML file for each line in the import.csv file.
I personally would use BASH/perl, but if you know Python or PHP those will also work perfectly well.
You seem to have a standard HTML format of
which you get from the other std .md/csv-export format of
"Item_Code","Description, **Length:** value ** **Width:** value ** **Depth:** value ** **Thickness:** value **"
so it would be easy enough to convert. If I have a moment in the next day or 2, I will try to create an example script (if my interpretation of your requirement is correct)
