Hi Everyone,
Greetings !!

We have a requirement to load the data from a table to a csv file. CSV file should be in delimited format with quotes as text separator. And Dates should not be enclosed by quotes.

I have implemented this using IKM SQL to File Append IKM with headers option to yes. And by using ODIOutFile to create a file.

but, i am getting multiple errors.

1. If we have a column of Numeric datatype, Row Header was not generated. But data gets loaded.
2. If we have a date column, throwing error
3. If i made all columns as string type - all columns data was enclosed in quotes.

cant we have data types for a csv file?

can anyone please help me on solving this.

Thank you
