This is the instruction file for Attribute Product Codes. v1.0
This contribution will allow you to add codes to each product attribute based on a per item only basis. This is so that if you have 2 suppliers having different codes for say a colour red attribute you can have a different code for each.
The attribute product code will be used as a suffix to the base product code.
Say you sold Apples.
The code for your standard Apple is AP1
But you had a choice of colours and sizes for those apples, you can now have the following codes generated for each.
Green Apple: AP1/G
Red Apple: AP1/R
Apple Large: AP1/L
Apple Large Red: AP1/L-R
As you can see the base product code stayes the same but with the seperate atribute code added as a suffix to the end.
This each attribute product code can be given a sort value, so that your code is in the right order.
Your code for a Large Red Apple: AP1/L-R could mean a completely different product if it was the other way round like AP1/R-L. This way there is no mistakes in the way the codes are generated when multiple attributes are selected.
