SQL query syntax with replace and concatenate

Looking for help with query that spools data to ASCII file from table (tab1) with several  columns that have CR-s. If data doesn't have CR-s the following works:

spool tab1_data.out
select col1|| '|' ||
col2 || '|' ||
col3 || '|' ||
col4 || '|' ||
col5 || '|' ||
col6 from tab1 ;
spool off

However for two columns have to use

select replace (col3CHR(10),CHR(32))
select replace (col4CHR(10),CHR(32))

to replace CR with 'space'. - How to combine 'replace' functions and select-concatenate command?

Thank you Experts!
Regards

Just use the function?


select col1|| '|' ||
col2 || '|' ||
replace (col3, CHR(10),CHR(32))|| '|' ||
replace (col4, CHR(10),CHR(32))|| '|' ||
col5 || '|' ||
col6 from tab1 ;

another option (if appropriate i.e. none of the other fields have new-lines in them)

simply execute the replace on the entire concatenation

select replace(col1|| '|' ||
col2 || '|' ||
col3 || '|' ||
col4 || '|' ||
col5 || '|' ||
col6,chr(10),chr(32)) from tab1 ;
