Have you checked the field collection feeds module? It does exactly what you are looking for.

Provides feeds integration for field collection module. Require Feeds alpha7 or later version.

  • I tried this module, but showing the error "An AJAX HTTP error occurred. HTTP Result Code: 200 Debugging information follows. Path: /gigabyte/batch?id=337&op=do StatusText: OK ResponseText: Fatal error: Class name must be a valid object or a string in /opt/lampp/htdocs/gigabyte/includes/common.inc on line 7998". I upload it my feeds xls parser. what is entity host id, field identifier and item id?. I simply mapped the fields in my field collection item. Can u tell me how to configure the filed collection processor. Thanks in advance.

It takes few minutes to get things right. The detailed setup manual is available here. Be patient and sef things up well.

I just used it 3 days ago.


  • I tried as same in the post. Even though I'm getting the error while importing. Unable to save a field collection item without a valid reference to a host entity. Thanks.
