 The parameter row is damaged, unrecognizable, or missing.  I get this message when down loading a data feed.  What does it mean and how do i fix it?  John

Hi John c,

If you are submitting a tab delimited text file as your feed, the first line needs to be the data field name, delimited the same as the rest of your file.

See this page:

If you are including that row as the first row, betting this message means one of the field names could be wrong, or it doesn't match the number of columns for which you provide data.

Hope this helps.
