Missing required value for the field 'Name' (name) at row 2

  1. I created a product
  2. clicked to export it to make a template of an import file
  3. selected just the fields that have values
  4. Tried to import the file back in and I get the top error

Even if I only try to import the Product Name I get an error.

I'm in developer mode, and woopdi doo. I only see what I already understand: That its a required field and it depends on "name"


...I just answered my own question: Export the "name" field also

Something has to be documented to explain this. The error message is vague, or why not just automatically have the program export the dependant fields like "name"
