>> Here is the product in the CSV:
>> MONIIE2407HDS-B1;MON;II;E2407HDS-B1;E2407HDS-B1;IIYAMA LCD 24" Wide
>> 1920x1080TN Speakers 2ms Black DVI HDMI;133;20;RECTD0.41;0,41;;;;;;;;;

This one is still not found and it is in the CSV file - I just don't
get it why !

Most of the SKU's are not doubled in the CSV, but what I will do is to
create new function to compare each SKU so after it founds the SKU in
the file it will return right away to the DB loop.

>>                          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

> It sets found to True if it updated.
>>                  except IndexError: # I have a lot of index error in the

Yes it will change after I create the new I assume.

>>          except IndexError:
         if not found: WriteLog(db_sku, db_sku,)

I will keep you posted THANK YOU
