Zen Cart How to Bulk Add Option Values to Option Names

If your zen cart products have a lot of the same option values for different option names, you will save a lot of time adding them in bulk as opposed to one at a time. Say, for example that you have a set up like this:

Colour Top: 30 choices
Colour Bottom: 30 choices (same as Colour Top)
Colour Left: 30 choices (same as Colour Top)
Colour Right: 30 choices (same as Colour Top)

This Easy Help Zen Cart Tutorial will show you how to save a lot of time by bulk adding option values to option names using your zen cart admin panel.
