So I'm trying to move my Yahoo store into OC.
Current Yahoo store: https://www.carguygarage.com
Current test OC store: http://carguygarage.org/

I've used this OC extension to import about 5,000 products so far -

I have all my products stored on my own server outside of Yahoo, and I'm using this Perl module to export things -
https://metacpan.org/pod/Excel::Writer::XLSX

Now I'm getting to the part of importing the options, and I see there's going to be a problem. I have many options with the same name, like color, but with many different options. For example, these both use "Color" but have different colors:

It looks like I can make 2 different option names both called "Color" or I can make one "Color" and only use some of the option value names when I bring it to a product. Anyone have some suggestions?

Ok, now I see that if I name more than one option the same, so 3 options all called "Color" the import only tries to match one "Color" option and if it's the wrong one none of the choices get imported. It also makes it impossible to know which "Color" has what choices when you try and add the "Color" to a product in the admin panel. So I guess the only way to do it is have one "Color" which then has all the color options for all the products (which seems to defeat the purpose of setting it up like this.)
