Missing microdata for condition

Struggling to find an answer to what appears to be a crawling problem on my 3 products I'm trying to get listed on Merchant Center.

When I click to get more detail so I know what needs to be corrected it just says 'Opps something went wrong'.


It's a Google Sheet feed.  When running the Google Merchant Add-on it comes back with 3 errors, but all it says is invalid data.  I hover over all the required fields and does not show anything wrong.


I've reached out to Google a few times promising a callback and have not heard from since.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's a sample of feed from Google Sheet.  Error is not descriptive and just says 'Invalid Data, attribute includes invalid data."

(1) spreadsheet-validation is not required for live processing --
direct feedback about the optional validation add-on and
related inaccurate messages, may be sent directly to google.

only live-processing of the data may show such details --
for live-processing, click on the feed-name and select
fetch-now, by clicking the three-dots, on the far-right
of the file-uploaded-on or no-feed-ready-yet message.

(2) missing-microdata relates mainly to the optional automatic-item-updates feature.


some websites simply cannot keep pace with all google's

crawl requests for policy checks and structured-data, or

are not up-and-running during the crawl.

if structured-data on the website does not exist, or does not meet all google's
requirements for shopping-ads and the merchant-center's related policy crawls,

or the site does not respond quickly enough to keep pace with all crawl requests,
then simply be certain that the optional automatic-item-updates feature is disabled

within the merchant-center-account -- then, simply ignore any related messages.

simply be certain that the sheet is always kept up-to-date
with on-hand physical inventory and the website information --
the sheet must be re-submitted (re-fetched) at least monthly,
or immediately after any critical change to the website or
physical, on-hand, in stock, inventory availability, occurs.

also, be certain there is only one, single, primary-feed
registered with google for the target-country and that
primary-feed is never deleted, unless a person at google
indicates to do so.

that said, forum-members cannot look into any accounts or submitted data --
forum-members can mainly offer suggestions based on the information posted
here in the public forum.

posting more specific details, such as a specific url link
to a read-only version of the google-sheet being used --

rather than a copy-and-paste in the forums, which may

not show all potential issues within the google-sheet  --
and possibly screen-captures of the merchant-center's
products-feeds, feed processing, and products-lists pages,
may allow other forum-members to offer more specific suggestions.

otherwise, the best likely course is to re-contact google directly --
weekdays during normal business-hours is usually best; indicating
that the issues relate to shopping-ads and merchant-center-account,
sometimes helps.
