    Hi All

    Okay I'm ready for the shouting....

    Good News, The Bill Bam feed on SAS is being updated today, 1505 products listed.

    Bad News, I had to change the data structure totally...

    A couple of reasons for this :
    - The old structure was manually done before I had a new tool to access the data.
    - I didn't think the stock would change as much as it does
    - I have a new tool that exports from YStores direct to a SAS format.
    - I can do updates for more often with the new tool.

    The new format WILL be the one we use until such time as Bill Bam ever moves from their YStore (not planned at all), I WILL add back the "best sellers" data in the CUSTOM3 column

    The biggest loss for this feed is the loss of the category links for the products, now there is just a link to the product, and of course the structure is changed.

    Okay start shouting now....

    NB if you are using the external feed, that has not been changed, nor updated though.

    Cheers

    Hi WW

    Product changes can happen at any time, stock always changes, Mondera diamond feed updates daily.

    Data Structure changes, yes should be avoided when possible, however I need to get the best selection of products for BB and this is my best option to get them out to everyone.

    No one 'needs' to update right now though, if they don't have time then leave it till after Christmas, the links from the old feed will all still work

    Cheers
