I run an SSIS package to create a .txt file on to an FTP server and the delimiter I use is a pipe delimeter:

I have to import this file into a third party too and I get this error message: invalid field count

196      196      Invalid field count: expected 17 fields but found 10      [203822][1][903510001][Accessories][331000][0][Uncertified][5000][1/8/8/0/9/18809622][  Edition Red, White & Blue Crystal Minaudiere]
197      197      Invalid field count: expected 17 fields but found 1      [<BR> Condition: 1]
198      198      Invalid field count: expected 17 fields but found 8      [<][][1][][0][0][37][collection]

I can't use any other delimiter because of the nature of the file. Can you provide any suggestions please
