Load Utility Question

Load Utility Question
I would like to use the load utility to load a del file but I have a
column that is char for bit data. Is this possible? I tried using
x'hex_digits' format but that doesn't work.



Thanks,

Ed

You should just be able to load it as CHAR data.....

The data is binary and there will be a possibility that the binary
pattern will end up being a delimiter. Is there another way?

Re: Load Utility Question

Ahhh

Good point - sorry, I hadn't noticed that you were doing a delimited
load. I guess there is the possibility of ANY of the 256 bit
combinations could occur, which I think means you cannot do a delimited
load. Any chance of making it fixed format??
