Help Editing Datafeeds in ShareaSale

I have never done anything with datafeeds before, but just for the heck of it I downloaded one from my Share A Sale account. It was huge (46 mb's), and in order to use it myself I would have to edit it to add my Share A Sale account number. So I opened the file in Wordpad and tried the "Find and Replace" all feature, the file just "hung" and I had to resort to giving it the "three fingered salute"!

So my question is, what kinda program do you guys use to edit such a large file in the method I show above, or am I doing this completely the wrong way?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure but this may help. Teli one of our mods wrote a good article about modifying feeds.
<a href="http://affiliate-blogs.5staraffiliateprograms.com/2007/04/30/affiliate-datafeed-duplicate-content/">Affiliate Datafeed Tips - Avoiding Duplicate Content Penalties</a>

Also with SAS you can use Popshops then you don't need to do any coding at all.

Additionally SAS has their own storebuilder and some datafeed merchants offer that option.

Oh and I don't think you need to add your affiliate ID in SAS.

I'm not certain I've never done it, but with most networks the cool thing about pulling feeds from within the network is that it auto adds your affiliate id to every link.

Hey Teli or other SAS datafeeders??? Can you help???

Well with this one, it states to replace "YOURUSERID" with your actual user ID.

Not that I think I'll be using it, it's a bit too large for my webspace at the moment.
