Missing or Stray Quote

Updated 1 month ago by DataFeedWatch

What can you do to solve the Missing or stray quote error?

This problem happens when there is an uneven number of quotation marks in the csv feed. There are two reasons for this:

  1. Either you forgot to close a text qualifier (so a field value is “Sports shoes instead of “Sports shoes”)
  2. Or you used a single quotation marks in the text that is already inside quotation marks (e.g. “High-resolution 24” monitor”). For example, for the inch symbol, you should double the quotation mark (“High-resolution 24"" monitor”).

If you can, please try to fix this yourself (attached is the error log, that should help you find the error). Otherwise our support will contact you within 1 working day regarding this issue.
