Duplicate SKU needed
« on: February 25, 2010, 21:12:39 pm »
I am using the application as a catalogue.  I will have some 50 suppliers products listed with over 200,000 sku's. I have come across the problem of some suppliers having the same SKU. How can I ensure that I can have duplicate SKU by a different supplier in different categories.  Is this Possible.

best regards

Looking for the same thing. I suppose you can just delete the script that checks for duplicates?

Not sure if this works but try this:

go to ps_product.php and comment out line 42 to 48

Note* VirtueMart 1.1.4 stable

That would probably work fine, but I would do a grep on all VM files for reference to the sku database field to double check that this won't conflict with other aspects of VM stock control, cart, etc. I don't think it will, but I would double check!

Ok I tested it out and stock control works fine as with cart. If I find any conflicts will post in this thread.
