Hi EEEE:

   I am exporting data from a MS SQL 2008 into a csv using SSIS that selects all rows of a view. I noticed that the count(*) of the view didnt match the csv. Its likely because there is a max length for a line and thats being exceeded by certain rows which is forcing a newline and a separate additional row.

Could you tell me what the max length of a row is and how to fix this issue?

Are you sure there are no line feeds in your data?

Its a select * from the view...so there shouldn't be a linefeed. How can I verify this?

Something like this:

SELECT * FROM some_table
WHERE CONTAINS(some_field, char(13)) OR CONTAINS(some_field, char(10))
