Error 8009

Unexpected parent SKU for this child SKU. For help on how to proceed, see

This error occurs when processing your data would change the ParentSKU that is associated with a child product. Before a child product can be related to a new parent, you must remove that child product from its existing parent-child relationship.

To eliminate a relationship, you can delete either the parent or child product. When you delete a parent, you remove the relationship between that parent and all its children. When you delete a child product, you eliminate the relationship between just that one child product and its parent.

After you remove the original relationship, you can re-assign the child product to a new parent product.
