Step 1: Identify the reason for the error
The 8032 error occurs when you try to add a child or move a child to a new parent. The error can also occur if there is a phantom parent that you don't have access to.

Step 2: Delete the current parent
To resolve the 8032 error, you need to delete the current parent. You can do this by going to your inventory and clicking on the parent SKU that you want to delete. Click on the "Delete" button to remove the parent.

Step 4: Assign the child to a new parent SKU
In the product template, assign the child SKU to the new parent SKU. This will create a new parentage for your products.

Step 5: Upload the product template
Once you have filled in the product template, upload it to Seller Central. Wait for the upload to complete and ensure that the product information is correct.

Step 6: Troubleshoot any warnings or errors
If you encounter any warnings or errors during the upload process, troubleshoot them to ensure that the products are uploaded correctly.

Step 7: Repeat the process for other parent/child relationships
If you need to create other parent/child relationships, repeat the process for each relationship.

Step 8: Avoid the 8032 error in the future

To avoid the 8032 error in the future, ensure that your inventory and parent/child relationships are set up correctly from the start. Check for any phantom parents and delete them to prevent future errors. Double-check your product information before uploading to ensure that it is accurate.
