for an (excel) spreadsheet, simply type FALSE
in the cell under the column (attribute) named
identifier_exists for the item.

then, leave the gtin, mpn, and brand values entirely empty for the item.

never, ever, use FALSE for any global-trade-data (mpn, brand, gtin);
global-trade-data values must be either exactly as assigned by the
product's manufacturer -- or left entirety blank (entirely empty).

if there is no identifier_exists attribute in the spreadsheet
then, simply add a new column and name the new column

if all inventory items have not been assigned any proper
global-trade-data (mpn, brand, gtin) by the manufacturer
then, the mpn, brand, and gtin columns may be deleted --
and all identifier_exists (cell) values should be FALSE

first, you're welcome.

that depends on the file-format that was registered --
.txt tab-delimited (spreadsheet) or a google-sheet.

if a google-sheet was registered -- then, a fetch-now button
should be seen and the google-spreadsheet usually must be
(changed to) shared -- e.g. anyone-with-the-link -- and then,
fetched manually or via a schedule.

if a .txt file was registered -- then, a manual-upload button
should be seen, the google-spreadsheet can be private,
but the .txt file must be exported as tab-separated-values
and then re-uploaded manually, via ftp, or scheduled.

otherwise, forum members cannot look into the feed or account
however, a merchant-center support specialist may be contacted --
