I wonder about the most elegant solution for importing user history data.
I need to run a daily feed import of a CSV file to ingest the following user related purchase history.
uid,category,spent 1106,BED,2600 1106,BROOM,7800 2103,MANCH,89
Obviously, there can be multiple rows for a user.
Ideally, I would like to store the data in the user's profile. However, I have a couple of concerns.
Firstly, the only module I can think of for containing this data within the profile is field collection which I have had some frustrations with in the past. Secondly while I find the feed module a wonderfully easy solution for inserting/updating entities, but I'm not sure how to just import one field.
The other option I am considering of is importing to a content type called "Purchase History" that contains a reference to the the user. I haven't got time to create custom modules for this feature.
Any other suggestions?
