in thread raw data formatting

Use <code> tags for data please. This data (unike your initial post) seemingly contains real names (as well as things titled PHONE, BAD_DEBT, State/Area/zip codes and what could be social security information), are you sure you should be posting this anywhere?

    yeah ur right...ok I scrubbed the file and made it not as long. There is no S/S info in this file.

      Please update your post one more time to purge the secret perlmonks cache

      FWIW/AFAIK, you're supposed to treat SSN about the same as CCN, and you should notify the people whose SSN's you exposed so they can monitor teir credit for identity theft

        I updated it 5 times...taking out all the #s too.
        again, there are no socials or CCN's in the original file.

      You're posting (what could be) other peoples personaly data on the internet (good luck getting that out of search engine caches), is that a better idea than spending a few minutes effort? Why do you think we need this to be real data? If you were having problems with a database script would you provide valid login credentails? Why do you think anyone would need so much data in order to help with your code? Hopefully you're starting to get the point.

      The sensible thing would have been to craft a fake file using data you'd made up, only a few records long. Posting it formatted correctly helps. Essentially making it easier for people to help you.

      Update: Prior to nuking, the post this was in reply to said:

      "well what can I do...scrub the whole file???"

      Please mark significant updates, rather than replace content, so replies still have context.

      Yes--quickly remove the above, and then scrub all that you want to post here as a sample to work on.

        agree. excuse my stupidity and lazyness. i was wrong and the file is now scrubbed.
