hai,

I have a text file which I need to upload in to the server& later parse in to db.
In the txt file the fields r separated by , & enclosed by
".

I can split the values in txt file using explode fn.
$piece=explode(",",$fcontents[$i]);//where $fcontents contains the text file loaded in to the server.

b4 parsing in to db, I try to trim the function to eliminate "(double quotes) by below coding

strlen(trim($piece[0]))==13;

but still I could see values with double quotes when I try to display it in the browser b4 parsing.

can anyone guide me on how to prevent double quotes from being displayed.

thank you,
harish

trim won't take the " out.. trim takes spaces out of the variable..

try str_replace or ereg_replace ..
