The online ebay management system I use allows me to upload my inventory to the online database with a tab separated file.
I generate this file with filemaker, although the ebay management system was designed to accept tab separated files from excel.
The formating appears to be different in a filemaker tab file verses a excel version. While my online database accept the filemaker exports for a small number of records, it rejects it if there are more then around 50. If I take this file, open it in excel and resave it, then i have no problem.
While there are worse things then having to do that every time I upload to my server, I am curious as to why the 2 formating is different.
The one thing I have noticed is that when I open the filemaker generated tab file in a notepad, all of my html code has double quotes "" instead of single. If I open the same file in excel, I can only see the single quotes. I can't explain why.
Here is my version:
And this is a functional version edited in excel:
Note, the difference is only visable in a text editor
