    I'm new to using datafeeds?

    I guess the first question I should ask is

    Do I have to know how to code in a language search as asp or php?

    Do I need to have a lot of database experience to implement datafeeds?

    I do tech support in a web hosting company so I do have a technical background however coding and databaeses are my least knowledgable technical subjects.

    Any help or documents would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the help.

    That's a good book but most books on the subject don't cover how to handle datafeeds themselves. They describe setting up the database and building dynamic web pages. They don't discuss downloading and any modifications to the feed to get it to conform to a site's database.

    However some of the older posts in this forum are helpful such as using wget to download a feed or using Perl to work with feed prior to loading it on a database. Check there as well.
