String Delimiters

By default, the string delimiter for external sets is a single quote when using VARIABLE format, and a double quote when using CSV format.

You can change this at runtime by using the string_delimiter parameter:



If an external set name is specified, the string delimiter is only changed for the specified set: otherwise it is changed for all external sets in the job.

The string delimiter supplied must be a single-byte character.

You can use the following escape sequences for special characters.

\t    Tab

\n    Newline

\s    Single quote (')

\d    Double quote (")

\\    Backslash (\)
