Default Product Export Guidelines

Hi All,
I want to know some information about product export (under services in admin panel). These are my question :
  1. Whether the export of product that we generate is stored some where (other than the .txt file in export folder) (in DB or some file) if in some file how it is stored.
  2. What are the columns that are being exported in the product export as I have not seen any header related information. From where these columns information comes?
  3. Can I customize the product export it means I can add my columns and separators?

Waiting for some quick reply.
Regards,
Awais Qarni

Hello Awais,

just check it out, it is simple. Take care that the export folder is writable in your installation

Hi Macro thanks for you reply. But I am unable to understand what to check? As you haven't given any link in your reply? What to check?

Hi,

sorry, maybe I was a bit too quick reading again :-)

  1. Nope. Just in the export folder in CSV format. Exporting from the database to the database wouldn't make sense

  3. Don't know it, to be honest. If you find it out, please drop a note in this thread.

Yes, possible. For this, you would have to overwrite the export class by a module with your own functionality.

Thanks Macro for your detailed answer. Now please some more points to clarify?
Now as you mentioned that I have to overwrite the export class to have my functionaliy. There is a class 'GenExport' which is inheriting the gyndexportbase class. Now Will I extends the Genexport? Second point the that processing is being done in a tpl file named genexport.tpl file. Now When I will develop a pluing should I also have the same file for same name in my module folders? Or I will change the code of this file?
Regards,
