    I got the cj datafeed for all my merchants.

    After unzipping the file, I tried to use textpad to open it. The pc hanged.

    I tried to use ms access 97 to import the feed. Got the error
    Can't start the import wizard. The first row of your data file is too large.

    I tried to use webmerge to split the file. Program not responding even after trying a sample size of 10 records.

    What do you use to open your cj feed?

    My pc has 64 MB RAM. Could that be the problem?

    The cj file is 168 MB unzipped.

    You might try renting one of those giant dumpsters for your driveway next time you try to download the feed. It's that big when you have all your merchants in there.

    I use MS Access and with 128 RAM, it is still super slow.

    ram must be the problem.. I've got 1 gig ram and it opens super quick

    by the way, you could use ask a question to ask cj to set you up with a new feed containing only the merchants you really want, or split the data you want over multiple feeds

    As with any feed, the more ram you have, the more processing power you have availble for resources...

    Not meant as a negative, 64 MB is very, very little even for most of todays applications...ram is soooooo cheap these days, you can go here and check it out:

    Hope that helps....ram is cheap and is one of the things you can do to increase the performance of any system, IMO, you can never have too much RAM.

    Hi womanht,

    Your datafeed problem is very temporary.
    CJ will be providing each merchant feed separately soon. It will be fixed either in
    this update of shortly thereafter. Providing a huge file including all merchant feeds was a temporary interim solution. They are working on making it much easier and better.
