Event type:

Hey Durbs!

Mark Pape from Deep Current is currently building a custom module on Drupal 7 and is eager to share his experience.

The module is for a client that needs to allow existing customers to login and request back-office "Copies of Documents" and "Reports" via API. The intention is to reduce the need to contact customer support for these documents.

This means the Module makes use of the Forms API, Menu API, HTTP Requests, Database API for logging and reporting of transactions, etc.

Excel & CSV compare files

I have an eCommerce Drupal website with a large amount of products listed. One of my suppliers has 18,000 items and I get sent an updated file every day with updated pricing, stock quantities, new items and of course items that are no longer available are simply removed in the updated CSV file etc.

From this csv file I have to manually allocate items to categories that have been created on my website and therefore my pricing csv import file differs from the original file.
