    data file - which delimited to use? Comma(,) or PIPE(|)

    Jim Chan

      Hi guys,

       

      Client is planning to extract and convert data file to me. It is going to be a flat file(.csv). However, client chose to use delimiter comma(,).

       

      Some suggested to use delimiter pipe(|) .

       

      Now I do not know which is best to use for QlikView. Anyone out there able to provide me a suggestion?

       

      What  should i look at to determine which delimiter to use for a flat file?

       

      Rgds,
