January 29th, 2009, 07:44 AM #1Flat File Coupon Feed Suggestion
Unless I am mistaken the flat file coupon feed you offer uses a "comma ," as the delimiter. Bad, bad, bad idea. Why? Because many of your merchats who create coupons use multiple commas in the description field, which totally FUBAR's up any automation.
Use a special character that is not readily used in normal text. A "pipe | " would be a much, much better choice.

Hey. Thanks for the suggestions. If its being done properly those fields that contain commas themselves should be encapsulated by double quotes. Is it possible for you to re-create this error? If so, then we'll happily open a bug report and get to correcting it.

The coupon feed for OneTravel.com is all fubar'd up.

A good many folks here at ABW put their heads together and came up with a workable format for data feeds that takes care of the comma issue and more, summarized here:
