How do I set the delimiter to pipe and use quotes?   I have a field with several commas, so I am changing to pipe delimited.  Each field has quotes as well.

I have tried several different ways to fix.  fgetcsv($handle,""","|",""");




$filename="EP_download.csv";




//open the file
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");
//this is what causes it to skip
fgetcsv($handle,""","|",""");    //How do I set the delimiter to pipe with quotes?



//begin looping through the lines
while (($data = fgetcsv($handle, ""","|",""")) !== FALSE)
{


// loop all column values and escape special characters
 foreach ($data as $key => $value){
  $data[$key] = $value;
}


$statement = $conn->prepare('INSERT IGNORE INTO EPdownload (ID, Title, Category, SubCategory, SubSubCategory, Brand, BrandURL, ProductImage, MSRP, MAPPrice, Description, Specification, DealerCost, PageURL, PageTitle, StartingPageURL, DateTime) VALUES(:ID, :Title, :Category, :SubCategory, :SubSubCategory, :Brand, :BrandURL, :ProductImage, :MSRP, :MAPPrice, :Description, :Specification, :DealerCost, :PageURL, :PageTitle, :StartingPageURL, :DateTime)');

		$params = array(':ID'=>$data[0],
						':Title'=>$data[1],
						':Category'=>$data[2],
						':SubCategory'=>$data[3],
						':SubSubCategory'=>$data[4],
						':Brand'=>$data[5],
						':BrandURL'=>$data[6],
						':ProductImage'=>$data[7],
						':MSRP'=>$data[8],
						':MAPPrice'=>$data[9],
						':Description'=>$data[10],
						':Specification'=>$data[11],
						':DealerCost'=>$data[12],
						':PageURL'=>$data[13],
						':PageTitle'=>$data[14],
						':StartingPageURL'=>$data[15],
						':DateTime'=>$data[16]);
		                $statement->execute($params); 
	
}

Please see http://php.net/manual/en/function.fgetcsv.php

Arguments are resource $handle [, int $length = 0 [, string $delimiter = "," [,...

So the first-cut of code would look something like this:
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");
if (!$handle) trigger_error("FAILED TO OPEN $filename", E_USER_ERROR);
$arr = fgetcsv($handle, 0, '|');
var_dump($arr);

Open in new window

If that works correctly, then we can add the appropriate loop control to detect EOF on the $handle resource.
