DB2 Load from File pipe delimited

"OF DEL MODIFIED BY COLDEL,REPLACE" works fine and was able to load the records into the database
modified the same to
"OF DEL MODIFIED BY COLDEL'0x7c'REPLACE" as my original file is pipe delimited, now I'm getting below error for the same input file which worked for the "," delimited ( just did replace all for "," with "|") and there are no other ,

SQL3125W  The character data in row "F0-1" and column "1" was truncated
because the data is longer than the target database column.

Hi Rag,

What's the underlying operating system and what editor did you use?  I'm wondering if the changes to the file may have affected the end-of-line sequences.  

In any case, instead of using the hex value for the character, just user the | symbol.  That should work fine.

  "OF DEL MODIFIED BY COLDEL| REPLACE"

Good Luck,
Kent
