Dear David,

Also, just I have investigate Vtiger Database structure. I had been
using product export feature and compare the output .csv file for Vtiger
Database's `vtiger_products` table structure. (Please, find this
comparison result from attachment.) 

I didn't found the .csv file's some fields origin from the Vtiger
database. (It was highlighted in gray colored in the title row, "Product
Active", "Created Time", "Modified Time", "Description")
Can you tell to me where is the those fields original data was kept in
the database's which table and which fields!

Also, what do you think which is better way for 'import & sync':
	1. develop custom app based on mostly SQL DML level or 
	2. develop custom app based on Vtiger PHP programming level
Actually I have more experienced in SQL database programming than the
PHP, but do not consider it for your advise.  

With best regards,
