SQL LOADER:carraige return inside field value
Posted on 1998-10-08
I am trying to load data into Oracle using SQL Loader. One field is of datatype varchar(255) and has carraige returns inside it. When I try to load the data it takes the carraige return , line feed as an end of line and tries to continue after that and the operation fails. Is there a way to handle this? As a last option I will write a script to search and replace all such CR and LF with some other character, but I was wondering if this could be tackled in any way other than that. I am bcp ing out the data from Sybase and loading it to Oracle. Basically how can I specify a different row terminator other than CR and LF and load the file using SQL Loader.
