Background: FlatFiles in EXTOL Business Integrator
EXTOL Flat File Integrator (EBF) offers users the ability to
interface with flat files. Users can take flat file data
(delimited or fixed length) and translate the data to XML,
database, spreadsheet or another flat file layout.
Some of the components of EBF are:
- Flat File Schema
- Business Process Script
- Read/Write Adapter
Scenario: Delimited Flat File Data with Double Quotes as Escape Characters
We want to process an inbound flat file data using a comma (,)
as a delimiter and double quotes (") as an escape chacter.
An example would be double quotes (") around data that contains the delimiter such as comma delimited - xyz, abc, "de,gf", hij. The "de,gf" would parse as one field
In order to handle both of these set-ups, we will create an EXTOL Transformation Setting, as seen below.
Set-up 1: Transformation Setting - Source Delimiter
Set-up 2: Transformation Setting - Source Escape Wrap Character
