Data Feeds missing fields
Hello, I use phRETS to connect to two different MLS feeds and one of them is sending back data that is missing fields or is totally out of sync.
I checked the RASM RETS feed for these: Resource: OpenHouse, Class: SF_1 Resource: Property, Class: CI_5 The only thing that I see is that the columns are not being returned in an order consistent with the other classes. But the L_ListingID field is in the data being returned. You should never assume the order. You should always use the COLUMNS tag returned to determine the position of the data. The order can change with the addition or removal of fields or business or security rules. Or you can use the Select parameter to specify the order you desire.
Want to reiterate a key point in Bruce's message:
You should never assume the order. You should always use the COLUMNS tag returned to determine the position of the data.
Always check the data, to ensure you're using the columns correctly.
You would just put the comma separated list of field names in the order you want:
This allows you to specify the order and also to exclude fields you don't care about.
To enter a block of code:
We need more information to help you in this: What sites, login URLs are you using? Login name you are using to access RETS. What specific data is missing or out of sync? Resource, Class, specific data that is missing?
Ok, here are the two feeds

The Commercial feed is missing the ListingID and all of the data is out of sync.
The Residential Open House feed is also missing the ListingId and is out of sync.
Can you try WCMNMLS now and see if it is working correctly?
WCMNMLS is working.
Can you try RASM now and see if that is working?
No, it is not working correctly.
Can you give me a more information on what issue you are having with RASM and the specific resource, class and fields you are having problems with?
How do I use the Select parameter? I have not seen any references to it in the documentation.
