I have an online tool store for my family business, SkywayTools.com, selling automotive tools. I was able to obtain a feed from my supplier in an Excel spreadsheet. I want to feed this inventory into my online store, up to Google/Froogle and to some other places online - most of these require a different format for the feed, so I need to move around the columns of my spreadsheet.
Does anyone have advice on a working with RSS feeds? Do you have any web pages you could suggest that have a simple overview and instructions on how to work with large feeds? I have been given about 19000 items to work with and I'm intimidated by the size of the feed. I've also been having some difficulty opening the feed in my Excel and working with it. My programmer has been able to open it up with a 2000 version of Excel, but for some strange reason my 2003 version won't open the darned file up! I think I have to learn to work with this file myself, since I am going to have to update it at least quarterly.
Any words of wisdom would be gratefully considered.
