December 29th, 2006, 01:49 PM #1Tips on merging multiple feeds?
Does anyone have any tips on merging multiple feeds? I did a few searches, but only found posts regarding uploading multiple feeds, handling large feeds, etc.
I was thinking I should figure out my categories...then do a find and replace on each feed before exporting to webmerge.
Am I on the right track? As always, any advice is appreciated!

Don't know if this will help.
I have created an access database to combine multiple feeds. It allows me to sort feeds based off the categories. Plus, it is easy to create a database using access.
It takes some work setting one up, but it can be done, and will save time if using multiple lists.
Also, some feeds don't come with categories, by using a DB I can place many items into existing databases. It also allows me to create lists focused on a site.
Hope this helps.

I do those by hand using find and replace with excel.
First thing you have to do is figure out what you want to name your categories. Then find and replace the cats that get the new name. From there I combine the 2 of them into one file. After that I sort by cat, sub cat then product name. It takes a little while to cook up.
