Hi thanks for your speedy reply. I have manage to bulk insert the data, however every last field will end with new line (or return carriange).

Example:
Row1.1 Row1.2 Row1.3<new line>
Row2.1 Row2.2 Row2.3<new line>

How to remove the last "new line" command so it will show only Row1.1 Row1.2 Row1.3

did you specify the following option:
LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'

if yes, does the file eventually have '\r\n' or the like... you will have to specify the exact "line terminator" sequence of the file...
