Ozo,

Getting the below error. Pls advice

C:\Expert-Exchange\perl>perl -lane 'BEGIN{local $\;print"".<>}print "$F[0]\t$_"
for split/,/,$F[1]' < perl.csv > order.csv
> was unexpected at this time.

Open in new window

DOS shell would use different quotes
perl -lane "BEGIN{local $\;print''.<>}print qq'$F[0]\t$_' for split/,/,$F[1]" < Input > Output

I tried the above, it shows only one line.

See input and output attached,
perl.csv
order.csv

Your example looked like
ID      Product Details
2500      PROD894,PROD888,PROD900,PROD23,PROD17
2501      PROD390
2502      PROD388
2503      PROD440,PROD433,PROD475

But your perl.csv looks like
1,"0,0,0,0,0"
2,20
3,20
4,"23,23,27"

What should the output be for the latter?

maybe you want something like
perl -F, -alne "s/\42//for@F;$F=shift@F;print qq'$F,$_'for @F" < perl.csv
