try using | as the delimiter and make sure that every value in enclosed in quotes.

Another help is to use Simon's (BYZ) code change so that TAB becomes the delimiter instead of CSV.

It's really amazing and frustrating how many little things can cause a bulk uplod to fail: commas in descriptions, certain characters, etc. One that caused me the biggest headache was invisible carriage returns. I would take an entire column of cdescription, cut and paste to Word, and then scroll (of Find/Replace) these culprits. Just one incorrect character, or carriage return, and the upload fails. Nothing more fun than scrolling through hundreds of products looking for the one little goof. . .

here's the link for "How can I import tab-separated files in vpasp?" (not an addon; just a free set of notes on how you can do it)....
