Confused compare function :)

Guys I'm still confusing my script is working better, but not enough.
I did a logfile to see which products are not found anymore in the CSV
and I found some that are present but python says they are not ??

Here is the product in the CSV:
1920x1080TN Speakers 2ms Black DVI HDMI;133;20;RECTD0.41;0,41;;;;;;;;;

Here is what python reports:
e2208hds-b2, 721 not found
e2273hds-b1, 722 not found
e2274hds-b2, 723 not found
e2407hds-b1, 724 not found

And here is my final code: ( I hope it look better now :) )

def Change_price(): # Changes the price in the DB if the price in the
CSV is changed
    TotalUpdated = 0 # Counter for total updated
    TotalSKUFound = 0 # Total SKU from the DB coresponds to the one in the CSV
    TotalSKUinDB = 0 # Total SKU in the DB
    for row in PRODUCTSDB:
        TotalSKUinDB +=1
        db_sku = row["sku"].lower()
        db_price = float(row["price"])
        found = False
            for x in pricelist:
                    csv_price = x[6]
                    csv_price = csv_price.replace(",",".")
                    csv_price = float(csv_price)
                    csv_new_price = csv_price*1.10
                    csv_sku = x[4].lower()
                    csv_stock = int(x[7]) # I used this as normally I
used  stock in the condition
                    match =, csv_sku)
                    if len(db_sku) != 0 and match:
                        TotalSKUFound +=1
                        if csv_new_price < db_price and csv_stock > 0:
                            print db_sku, csv_price, db_price, csv_new_price
                            Update_SQL(csv_new_price, db_sku)
                            TotalUpdated += 1
                            found = True

                except IndexError: # I have a lot of index error in
the CSV (empty fields) and the loop gives "index error" I  don't care
about them
                except ValueError:
                except TypeError:
        except IndexError:
        if not found: WriteLog(db_sku, db_sku,)
    TotalNotFound = TotalSKUinDB - TotalSKUFound
    print "Total SKU in the DB %s" % TotalSKUinDB
    print "Total SKU coresponds to the DB and CSV %s" % TotalSKUFound
    print "Total updated: %s" % TotalUpdated
    print"Total not found with in the distributor: %s" % TotalNotFound
