For external sets, you can specify a record separator. This indicates how records are (to be) separated.

The default is a newline character (\n). You can enter up to four characters, and use the following escape sequences for special characters:

\t for a tab character

\s for a single quote ( ' )

\d for double quotes (")

\\ for a backslash (\)

For external sets for an export task, you can also specify column separators at run time.
