Magento: Product Import error – shows HTML code while importing

While importing products (somewhere around 1200 rows) by Magento’s in-built “System > Import/Export > Dataflow – Profiles” I got an error where the Dashboard’s HTML was printed in the output.

magento product import error

The reason for this error is due to something wrong in CSV product data which Magento didn’t understand. Create a temporary CSV file with only few rows (2-4) and check if that works. If it works, that means there is some problem with rest of the data.

For more information check my SO question here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14978970/magento-importing-product-error/14980974

  • I had this problem too, and my problem was that the file was too big (about 1500 products).

    Splitting the main file into two different files made it work.

    Just to let the people know it.

    Thank you for your post kalpesh
