    Datafeed Error
    I've applied for and d/l'd the datafeed and script.
    I am getting the following error after running bettym.pl;

    ./datafeed.csv: line 2: expected 21 fields, found 20 fields:

    Then, of course, it hangs. Datafeed file error?
    Thanks

    Which script are you using. I'm not sure that was communicated in this message.

    I am going to suggest you post the error on the Cusimano script forum located at:

    The problem is in the datafeed. The fields have changed and moved. I updated mine, and found I had to completely rework my sql input functions.

    Also, there are a bunch of middots in the feed, which are difficult to recreate in a 7-bit ascii terminal when you are trying to write a replacement script to have them removed..

    Also, several product Descriptions in the "Cleaning and supplies" store are truncated, though offhand I don't recall which products in particular they are.

    Same problem here. I received the email about the bonus to update my site that uses the feed. When I started to work on the update, I saw the feed was all changed and determined it would take more time to update since so much was changed. The update has been delayed for now as I don't have the time to make it work with my current database layout.

    Update:

    The generic feed is now updated with the same column format we had in the last quarterly feed.

    Here is the link

    Didn't do much for me though. I setup my table according to the feed that was provided at the time. This file has all the categories changed. I'll update the prices but I won't be adding any new products since I don't want to recode my entire site.
