March 31st, 2013, 07:56 PM #1Testing a Datafeed?
We're finally finishing up our product datafeed to upload to Share a Sale.
Quick/possibly silly question... Is there a way to test the feed before it goes, even after going through it thoroughly, or will Share a Sale simply reject it if it's incorrect?
Thanks in advance.

They will take it for a test drive before it goes live. If it fails, they will tell you.Greg Hoffman

Nothing may beat a live datafeed test, but as a datafeed user I usually download a new datafeed to my Hard Drive and see how it looks on OpenOffice.org Calc before I even try to upload that feed for the first time to my live site.
You can even use apache friends - xampp to see how it may look live on the server.

You should have ur tech team check an make sure it works
if u do upload an incorrect data feed u will get a message from sas stating the upload failed and give u the reason.
We recently received a datafeed update for your account xxxxx, but after processing the file, no records remained. Records were removed from your file for the following reasons: Please keep in mind that missing or out of order columns can also generate these errors. All of the columns in our specification are required to be in your file, although many can be left blank. They must also be in the exact order specified. If, for example, our system reports records being removed for an invalid merchantID number, and you have verified that you have the correct merchantID number in your file, verify that the merchantID column in your file is appearing in the correct order, with no missing or extra columns preceding it.
If you need help determining the problem, please open a support ticket from your account, and include as an attachment your datafeed file as a .zip archive.
