PRODUCT FLAT DATA reindexing

If you have recently upgraded your Magento website and tried to reindex your data, then you might be stuck at PRODUCT FLAT DATA reindexing. This problem is mainly due to the fact of too many attributes usage, etc. In order to fix this, - Edit app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Resource/Product/Flat/Indexer.php comment out this line :
1
//$adapter->quoteInto(’additional_table.is_used_for_promo_rules = ?’, 1),
inside function getAttributeCodes() Another fix is here, http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/261848/#t365431

upgrade a client site from 1.4.x to 1.6.x

Last week, while trying to upgrade a client site from 1.4.x to 1.6.x , I faced a weird issue, where the index management was getting stuck at Tag Aggregation Data. Here I what I did yo fix it : 1. Checked for InnoDB database collation.2 2. Verified the database with Database Repair Tool. 3. Then removed all the 4 tables related to TAGS , and dropped it. Then exported it from a clean 1.6 database and imported it. Cleaned the cache and reindexed then. 4. There is also a fix here, which worked for many, http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/264050/
