If you use external systems that require unique model numbers (like QBI or Webgility), you know what a pain it can be. My Find Duplicate Models mod helps a bit, but it's still a time consuming process to update each product and set the model number.

CSV Model Update allows you to easily update the products_model field for multiple products using a spreadsheet.

Just create a CSV with the two columns products_id and products_model. You can create this in a plain text editor. If you prefer to use Excel, just export to CSV with no headers.

Installation Instructions:

Before starting, back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.
  1. Go to Admin > Tools > Install SQL Patches and run the included SQL file.
  2. Upload the files in the admin folder to the admin folder in your store.
  3. Refresh your admin page; you can now run Admin > Catalog > CSV Model Update.
