i try to ask...

since all products were imported without VAT, any chance to have a way to automatically add VAT rule to everyone ?


look in the calculations, you can set a default


thanks again for your help. just 2 issues left (i hope).

1) After all the migration i've all the categories and they work. But when i'm adding a new product, and i've to choose the category, i press for example "n" to choose the category "networking" but it says no category found, so i've to manually scroll until "networking". this does not apply to all the categories

2)this one is maybe related to the template but i don't know which file to check for the problem: with vm2.0rc3 i can see the cart module on the webpage. Same settings,same position with vm2.0 final, and i can't see the cart module.

thank you for your precious help


I am still getting error messages when I try to migrate, or import the data directly into mySQL. I do the import into mySQL and I can see that all of the info is there, but it does not show in Joomla. Additionally, i keep getting the error message: No Shop Currency defined! Go to http://MYSERVEr/administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=user&task=editshop

Help, I am moving into critical now.


I've managed to get it to recognize and seems to have migrated everything, at least it says it did. However, I keep getting the error:

No Shop Currency defined! Go to

but I cannot find where to define the currency.

Also, it says it imported the order history and I see them in the backend of MYSQL, but they are not showing in the backend of Joomla, just this error message, which may be the problem.


Finally discovered the ONLY WAY AROUND THE ERROR is to install the SAMPLE DATA and then manually delete it afterwards. However, don't bother with this extension, as there are no SHIPPING or PAYMENT options included in the 2.0 version.

A complete waste of time until they get that covered. This should not be considered a working extension.
