    Default How to Upload Data Feed to Google?

    I've uploaded the data feed to Google Base but for some reason it is still coming up with errors. I've got rid of all the blank fields (weight for example) and now it says I have no title, no description, no ID and no price for 1505 items (all of them). I've deleted the fields that have nothing in them such as 'weight'.

    Item Errors - 1505 items with errors 1505 items affected



    1505
    Missing title (1505 errors)
    You must enter an item title. "Title" is a required attribute.
    Examples:

    Examples:

    Item Nr.Line Nr.541550542551543552544553546555



    1505
    Missing required attribute: condition (1505 errors)
    Please make sure you include all required attributes in your data feed.
    Examples:

    Examples:

    Item Nr.Line Nr.541550542551543552544553546555



    1505

    I've messed around with it no end and I've uploaded and uploaded and still no joy, I've looked at the help screen that says how to do it and followed that to the letter and I have no idea what I am doing wrong. It will not pick up any of my items so what do I do now?

    Thanks.

    Have you taken an export file and chopped it around yourself instead of using the standard Bluepark Google Base export?

    i had this problem to start with as well.

    i finally got around it by going to: catalogue/export product data then clicking on the writing/image GOOGLE BASE.

    this will then send it to a webpage in text form. I copied that into a .txt file and saved to my desktop, then manually uploaded it to google base.

    hope this helps

    Thanks, I thought I had but maybe I have not done enough to it or something. I've been manually updating it from the file I had saved but it isfrustrating as nothing has been happening.

    The one thing I did notice was that on the Google example it has 'link' but I do not have this on my document. Do you think that could have anything to do with it?

    I've got some other stuff to get done tonight but I'll sit down for another couple of hours tomorrow and see what I can do with it. Thanks for your help, I'll try again.

    Try an upload without messing with the Bluepark standard GoogleBase export, just download that, save as Googlebase.txt on your desktop, point GoogleBase to upload this and leave it at that, the problems usually start when you start messing with the thing.

    Have you included a field for "condition" this needs to added so that Google will list your items.

    This was discussed a few month ago and there were a couple of good soloutins posted here on the forum.

    "Condition" is now included as standard on the BP extract file.

    I didn't want to start another Google Base thread but I've finally got round to uploading my products to Google Base and it says the status is 0 of 37 - I've no idea whether that means that there is a problem or whether it is still waiting to upload the file (it did say it could take up to an hour).

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Many thanks.

    It can take an hour or so to upload. In your google settings tab within base make sure you set it to always send an e-mail. That way you will get an email and know if the upload was ok or not.

    Thanks, it is probably too late for this feed, but I'll make sure that it is on for next time. It is still showing the same status and it must be close to an hour now.

    I'm sat here waiting to see what happens and my eyes are shutting!

    Argh! I've sat here for an hour waiting to see if it processes and yet it had sent an error email to my gmail account!

    Trying again ...

    Did you eventually get it sorted last night Nadine? If not what errors is it reporting?

    Hi yes I did - for some reason when there was a little error that took me 2 mins to sort out when I got the error report.

    Thanks.

    Great stuff. Glad it's all sorted. I created my own feed and use data scheduling to upload on a regular basis so don't have to worry about it ever expiring
