How to create attributes in Import Manager
I have created the hierarchy in import manager and now i want to create attributes for taxonomy, as we know that when you create hierarchy and import it by mapping it to the categories field in destination you can view it in hierarchy as well as taxonomy mode.
The problem is dat i want to give attributes to the hierarchy ii have created. I went through the Imoprt Manager Reference Guide, but they stated that to cerate attributes your data source must be updatable.
Can any one please help me with this it is urgent.
Thanxs in Advance......

To load hierarchy ( in Hierarchy field or Taxonomy Field), you need source like MS Access that can be modified by the import manager.
You do not need updatable source to load attributes. We were able to load attributes and attribute links using Excel file as input.
First you need to load table Categories[Attributes] with unique attributes across your taxonomy and then load table Categories[Links] to link the already imported attributes to various nodes in your hierarchy.
Hope this helps..
