I have list of 3000 items to be imported, Can anyone share how to enable the Import button (to import CSV file) in Products (Sales / Purchase / Manufacturing) in 9.0C

Excuse if the question is repeated. I had searched thoroughly but could not get any solution for it.

1. Settings --> General Settings

2. Check the box next to Allow users to import data from CSV/XLS/XLSX/ODS files.

3. Import works only from List view, so make sure you change the view if needed.

Thanks Ray it worked. It was because of List View option was not enabled.
