Exactly how does the wp_wp_eStore_tbl table get created? I have been trying to use the WP CSV to DB plugin but it fails. I have watched the videos and followed precisely here: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/how-to-bulk-upload-estore-products-from-a-csv-file-775 and other pages as you suggest “maybe it will be easier to follow this” which is doing it in phpMyAdmin.
I have deleted, reinstalled, removed all tables, deactivated, reactivated. Followed the steps precisely. It has to be some stupid thing right? Why do I not see a wp_wp_eStore_tbl table ans where and when does it get created?

That table gets created at the time of eStore activation. It is better to search for the following string in your PHPMyAdmin when you are looking for this table:
The reason is that your server maybe using a different database table prefix than “wp”.
If you are having trouble with that CSV import plugin then use this alternative method to import data into the table. Watch the video tutorial on this article:December 15, 2012 at 11:15 pm #52440
Guys I have tried all that. I referenced the link ending in 3415 page (but couldn’t remember the url in my orig post). My database does use the wp_ prefix. I have worked this for hours upon hours before asking for help. The table does not exist and will not re-create no matter how much I uninstall, reinstall, deactivate, reactivate, delete tables, start over, import directly into the database. This is such a fundamental action, creating that database, perhaps that is why it is so tricky of a problem!!! What to do? Thanks very much in advance.December 16, 2012 at 7:52 am #52441
Is there a document somewhere that spells out the database table field entry data like field type, length, etc. so I can create it totally from scratch? Or even better, can you make a CSV download available for me? Or is it in the plugin fileset somewhere? Thanks again!December 16, 2012 at 6:07 pm #52442wzpModerator
Out of curiosity, have you tried manually creating ONE product, and then go looking for the table?
