Flat File carriage Rerturn

Flat File carriage Rerturn

(OP)
HI

I have a flat file destination file that is then used for an import into another program. it works fine except if the CALL.TEXT01 information as a carriage return it then shows like below, where in fact I want it as one line as the example below. I cannot figure out how to get rid of carriage returns or space in the flat file destination. Anyone have any ideas please. Thanks

AS IT IS NOW

"CALL.ID",CALL.TEXT01
"3351493",CALL OFF

HOW I NEED IT

RE: Flat File carriage Rerturn

Hi,

Is there only a single carriage return per "line"?

I have used the replace before to clean a line break in sql (characters 10 and 13).

CODE --> sql

select replace(replace([ColumnName],char(10),''),char(13),'') as ColumnNameCleaned
    from TableName 

Not sure if this will assist you.

Thanks
Michael
