Create a flat file with multiple characters for enclosures

Hello,
we use OWB 11g2 (11.2.02).
Now we try to create a flat file with multiple characters for enclosures. The manual wrote:
"Enclosures (Left and Right): Some delimited files contain enclosures that denote text strings within a field. If the file contains enclosures, enter an enclosure character in the text box or select one from the list. The list displays commonenclosures. However, you may enter any character. The default for both the left and right enclosure is the double quotation mark ("). You can specify multiple characters and hexadecimal characters as field enclosures."
But it will not work. The OWB use the first character from the left enclosure definition as left enclosure and the second one as right enclosure !?!
Did anyone know this behavior? Is there a solution for this problem?
Thanks and regards
Norbert

HI Raghu,
           Use the function module 'GUI_UPLOAD'.
           In that you have to specify the field_separator value = 'X' in export section.

  • Flat File with multiple record types (OWB 10.2.0.2)

    Hi!
    I`m using OWB 10.2.0.2 and I`m trying to load a flat file with multiple record types, using SQL LOADER.
    In the flat file editor in the Record tab, I`ve set the type values and the corresponding record names like this:
    Type Value Record Name
    ======== ===========
    T TRAILER
    0 DETAILS
    1 DETAILS
    2 DETAILS
    When using this flat file in a mapping to load the data in a staging table, the generated code looks like this:
    INTO TABLE TRAILER
    TRUNCATE
    REENABLE DISABLED_CONSTRAINTS
    WHEN (1:1) = 'T'
    INTO TABLE DETAILS
    APPEND
    REENABLE DISABLED_CONSTRAINTS
    WHEN (1:1) = '0,1,2'
    The above clause (WHEN (1:1) = '0,1,2') is wrong as I expect one "INTO TABLE..." clause for each record type.
    Could this be a bug or am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks a lot for your help,
    Yorgos

    We`re using two target tables, one for the trailer record and the other for the details records.
    We are facing this problem from the moment we upgraded from OWB 10.1 to OWB 10.2.0.2, so we think it must be something with the way the sql loader code is generated in the new version.
    As our data sources are mainly flat files coming from mainframes, this is a huge problem for us. We even asked an expert in DW from Oracle to help us on this, but still haven`t found a solution.
    Is there any workaround for this or should we forget sql loader and go with an external tables + custom PL/SQL code solution?
    Your help is greatly appreciated Jean-Pierre.

  • Flat file with chinese characters

    Hi all,
    I am working on a solution to map a file with this structure (not xml):
    //.comment 1
    0~keyh2..hn~
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    //.comment 2
    0~keyh2..hn~
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    0~it1it2..itn~key
    This is my conversion setup
    recordser.structure = comment,1,header,1,item,*
    recordset.sequence = variable
    keyFieldName = key
    comment.fieldSeparator = .
    comment.fieldStructure = key.comment
    comment.keyFieldValue = //
    header.fieldSeparator = ~~
    header.beginSeparator = 0~~
    header.endSeparator = ~~
    header.fieldStructure = 0~keyh2..hn~
    header.keyFieldValue = 0
    item.fieldSeparator = ~~
    item.beginSeparator = 0~~
    item.fieldStructure = 0~it1it2..itn~key
    item.keyFieldValue = 1
    The problem now is that this file come from Chinese system and it is provide with chinese letters (looks like 2 bytes per letter). When I provide character encoding as ISO-2022 then adapter shows exception:
    java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException
    when I try to process it without passing any encoding then the exception is:
    more elements in file csv structure than field names specified
    Is there anyone who can help me with these?

    Hi,
    I think it is something wrong with the File content conversion parameters parameters.
    You can avoid comment 1 and comment 2 by using the parameter Document offset.Follow this link for that:
    <a href="http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/2c/181077dd7d6b4ea6a8029b20bf7e55/content.htm">http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/2c/181077dd7d6b4ea6a8029b20bf7e55/content.htm</a>.
    I think you didn't specify the field names in the File Content Conversion parameters.
    Follow these two weblogs for the File Content Conversion parameters:

  • How can i create a zip-file with multiple volumes

    Hi,
    i've to zip a large file (250 MB and more). But the zip file shouldn't be greater than 5 MB, because i have to send the file via E-Mail. So i've thought, that the solution of this problem can be to zip the large file in smaller zip-files, which are multiple volumes of a zip-archive. I've searched very long in WWW, but didn't find something. Perhaps you can help.
    Sorry, about the bad english. :-)
    Timo Bunger

    Hi
    Who said your english is bad ?. OK, are you looking for compressing the 250 MB file in to multiple versions using a java program ?. If not, there is a shareware you can download and split the file into multiple parts by specifying size of each part. You can send these parts via email and the other person can combine these parts into a single file again.
    Find this @

    You may need to read a bit about it on how to use.

  • Asset Intelligence Third Party Import File with multiple PO# for Same Software Title.

    A customer of mine ask me if there is a way to import third-party license information to SCCM 2012 Asset Intelligence that contain multiple POs either from same or different vendors using one line per PO.  I try using the following test input file but
    if fails.  If I only use a single line it works.
    Name,Publisher,Version,Language,EffectiveQuantity,PONumber,ResellerName,DateOfPurchase,SupportPurchased,SupportExpirationDate,Comments
    Adobe Reader XI (11.0.07)  MUI,Adobe Systems,11,English,3,CS10087281,XYZ,2/1/2013,,,
    Adobe Reader XI (11.0.07)  MUI,Adobe Systems,11,English,7,CS10087293,XYZ,6/1/2014,,,
    Adobe Reader XI (11.0.07)  MUI,Adobe Systems,11,English,2,CS10087451,RTR,7/1/2014,,
    The customer wants to track each individual PO for auditing purposes.  It appears the error in importing the file is due to the Name field having to be unique.  One approach might be to manually totaling the licenses for a given title and adding
    the POs info to the comment field.  Issue with this is the administrative overhead and limiting ability to track the individual PO/license info such as Reseller Name, Date of Order, ect.  I'm hoping for a workaround or is this a software limitation
    and they have to look at a third party solution.
    Thank You in Advance

    Wally,
    Thanks for the response.  So far it appears to be the case because the key field is the software name so it looks like a third party tool might be needed where SCCM provides the license usage info and the tool reconciles/normalizes against purchases.

  • Creating IPA file with Multiple SWF files using ADT

    Iam successfully able to create ipa files using the ADT package but my next requirement is to create an IPA file with multiple swf files.I think it might be easy if your SWF files are regular the tough part is my swf file has lot of action script in it so the only option is to through the command prompt and using the ADT package of Adobe AIR.So now i have 10 SWF files like this and iam creating ipa file for each swf seperatly but now I want to put all of the swf files into one ipa file.Please let me know if i was not clear in my description

    I think you are trying to explain how to load two swf's one with action
    script and loading an other swf file which should be non action script.If
    you read my requirement carefully.I have all the same type of swf's and
    these swf are automatically created as a form of output for xcelsius dash
    board software.Iam capable of creating individialu ipa files from these swf
    files.So when I try to combine the same kind of swf files the first error
    its giving is the file name which I have used in the xml.in the main file
    name for the swf file its not considering the two swf file name in the
    initial window.so the adt package in the command line is not understanding
    the file name from the xml and the command prompt and giving error this swf
    file does not exist.So please consider how to combine two swf files with AS3
    into one ipa file.These swf files are not editable,Let me know if you find
    any idea to achieve this

  • Export to flat file with unicode (chinese) characters??

    I have an SSIS (2013) package that needs to send an email notification with query results (via attachment). I have a data flow task with a source sql query that gathers 2 columns - ID and NAME. ID is varchar, NAME is nvarchar (some records have Chinese symbols).
    The destination is a .txt file. When I copy/paste a field w/ Chinese symbols to a .txt file, it shows up fine, so i know Notepad can handle the characters. I also have the .txt file set to Unicode encoding (I also tried ANSI originally). When I run the package,
    it says that it successfully moves 50 fields to the flat file. However, when I open the flat file, I see that it shows 10 records. It stops when it gets to the record with a Chinese symbol in it...but doesn't produce an error. My plan was to then take the
    attachment and use it in a Send Mail task. (i have the smtp/mail notification working fine...just need to figure out how to get the data to all export to the flat file correctly)
    Does anyone know how I can get the ID and NAME fields from a query into an email notification (either as an attachment, or even formatted nicely (with tabs) in an email would work).

    Hi,
    Based on my test, I can reproduce the similar issue in my environment. When we create the Flat File Connection Manager with the default settings, the data in flat file stops when goes to the Chinese characters.
    To fix the issue that makes the Chinese characters to actually get written into the flat file, we should check the Unicode checkbox on the right hand side of Locale property in Flat File Connection Manager. In this way, the flat file can display Chinese
    characters.

  • SSIS project - read multiple flat files with different formats

    hi all,
    i need to import multiple flat files with different formats into different tables of the sql server database and not able to figure out the best way out in ssis to do so...
    please advise the possible methods in ssis to do so and if possible the process which can be dynamic as file names or columns might change in future.

    Hi AK1987,
    To import flat files with dynamic columns, we can use Script Task inside a Foreach Loop Container to parse the first row of the flat file to get the columns names and save them into a .NET variable, then, we can create “Create Table” script based on this
    variable, and then store the script into a SSIS package variable. After that, we create a staging table based on the package variable, load the flat file data to the staging table. Eventually, we load data from the staging table to the destination table. For
    the detail steps, please walk through the following blog:

    kindly help for this
     

    Hi Karthick,
    As Arthur said, if you don't want to hard code the data flow, you need to read XML from the SQL Server table and use Script Task to implement the dynamic columns mapping. To read XML from a SQL table, you can refer to:
    http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2009/02/13/sql-server-simple-example-of-reading-xml-file-using-t-sql/ 
    In the Script Task, we need to parse the first row of the flat file to get the columns information and save that to a .NET variable. Then, the variable will be used to create the query that will be used to create SQL table. For more information, please see:

  • SSIS - Import Multiple flat files with different metadata

    Hi ,
    I have set of flat files with different metadata structure, I would like to load them into staging tables. 
    1. ) Can we load the flatfiles into the staging tables with out having multiple data flow task.
    2.) If possible , can we programmatically select the staging table based on the metadata of the flatfile and load them.
    Please advise.
    Thanks
    Thiya

    Nope in SSIS a data flow task needs to have a fixed metadata. So if your file metadata varies then best option would be use OPENROWSET syntax to pull the data and populate into your staging table. You may also use 
    SELECT .. INTO StagingTable ... FROM OPENROWSET (...)
    syntax to create staging table at runtime based on the file metadata
    http://sqlmate.wordpress.com/2012/08/09/use-your-text-csv-files-in-your-queries-via-openrowset/
    If you want to do this in SSIS you need to create data flow dynamically using script task and build the metadata
