When I am importing some files, I am told that I need to specify a location, but my file does not have a column for Location. What's the easiest way of doing this if all the data is in one location?


Some import columns, such as Stock Level, require a Stock Location to be specified. If all data in the file is for the same location, then a default location can be specified in the column mapping screen.

  • Create an import and proceed to the column mapping screen
  • Click the Default Value button
  • Select Location from the drop down menu and enter the name of your Linnworks location in the text box
  • Map any additional columns, such as Stock Level
  • Click the Run Now or Save button as appropriate


This will import the data into the specified location, without the need for altering your CSV file.
