    SQLLDR want double quotes in string

    Hello All,

    What is the proper way to code a control file (or my data) so that I can include a double quote with the data? I'm erroring out right now.

    Below is a sample.

    Thanks,

    P

    Control file
    ============
    load data
    infile test.dat
    REPLACE
    into table test
    FIELDS terminated by "," optionally enclosed by '"'
    (TEST_PK
    ,TEXT
    )


    Data file
    =========
    "15","If you answered "Yes," to any of the above, please provide details on a separate sheet.",

    Should be:
    Code:
    ....
    FIELDS TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' 
    ...

    What did I miss?

    Isn't that what I already have?

    load data
    infile test.dat
    REPLACE
    into table test
    FIELDS terminated by "," optionally enclosed by '"'
    (TEST_PK
    ,TEXT
    )


    Thanks,

    P

    Anyone have a different thought on this?

    Instead of using:

    FIELDS terminated by "," optionally enclosed by '"'
    Try using a different terminator character (like '|') and code:

    FIELDS terminated by '|'

    And no 'quote problems.
