How to read an Active Listings Report

The Active Listings Report is a tab-delimited file that you can open in any spreadsheet or database program, such as Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel. Listing data and file columns can then be modified within the spreadsheet, and uploaded at any time using the Inventory Loader or Listing Loader. For more information, see Using Reports to Update Inventory.

If you open the report in Microsoft Excel, the leading zeroes for ISBNs in the product ID column will be dropped by Excel. You can prevent this by using the import wizard and forcing the product-id column to be imported as text. Please see Microsoft Excel help for more information on this feature.

Below is a list of fields that appear in the report, as well as definitions of those fields and examples for each. The unused fields are provided for backwards compatibility to allow sellers who originally integrated their business using these fields to continue with their current software programs. If you do not need any of these fields, you may simply delete the columns from your downloaded report.

Please review these fields to understand the Active Listings Report.
