PowerShell includes a command-line shell, object-oriented scripting language, and a set of tools for executing scripts/cmdlets and managing modules. Scroll through the list of file types until you locate the CSV option, then click it once to highlight it in blue. In this age of Big Data, it’s not uncommon to run into text files running into gigabytes, which can be hard to even view with built-in tools like Notepad or MS Excel. To be able to open such large CSV files, you need to download and use a third-party application.
If you actually want to change a file’s type—say for example, you wanted to change an image from the JPG to PNG format—you’d need to use software that can actually convert the file. Zip files are archives containing multiple files in a compressed format. They’re used to transfer and store larger files in one small package. Zip is the name of the file format and the extension . If you don’t have access to a program that natively supports both formats you need, many dedicated file conversion programs are available. Another way to make a file open with a different program is to rename the file extension.
That’s why you can’t depend on partial “backups” to help you in case of a problem. After you make your edits, you re-import the CSV file back into your products page and the changes should be reflected in your store. As you can see, several columns are containing the different variants of your products.
Your JSON file’s data is now visible in Excel-style columns and rows. You will see your computer’s standard “Import” window.
We encapsulated the second column in quotes and we escaped the quotes that we wanted in our data by adding an extra quote. Excel interpreted this as we wanted it to, by having only two columns of data and for it to have quotes within the data. Here, in the second column, you will see that the comma within the quotes actually split out the data into a third column. This is because the entire data field was not encapsulated within quotes, so Excel interpreted this as two different columns of data rather than one.
Inside this object, we want to access the powers property, so we use [“powers”]. It basically follows the logic that you consider the languages being used to generate or parse the JSON.
