    i have exported categories in csv, each category has “path” column as for example 1/2/6, where 1 defines root, 2 as default category. problem is with 6, since category with 6 doesnt exist in database i get error, problem is because auto increment in table, if any category that is being added has 6 in path, i will be not be added, does your script handles this?
