1. If I use Mass Product Changer all descriptions become the same.
2. If I export descriptions the HTML is in lines not columns and I am unable to import when changed.

Hello Jayne!

Q: 1. If I use Mass Product Changer all descriptions become the same.
A: The Mass Product Changer addon applies the value you have set to the selected products. And if you have specified the certain description value, the addon will apply it.

Q: 2. If I export descriptions the HTML is in lines not columns and I am unable to import when changed.
A: You should try to use the Open Office Spread Sheet tool to manage the .csv files.
You can download the Open Office tools here:

Also please make sure that you have selected the correct separators in Import/Export Wizard: http://screencast.com/t/u1WdSfhpZ

Thank you for attachment.

We have checked your file and it does not correspond the spread sheet (table) structure or xml (tree) structure and it can not be parsed and imported by the Store Manager.

You have to ask your supplier to provide you with table or xml (tree) structured file.
Please find the example attached.
