    SQL output trailing delimiter at end of row

    Trailing delimiter at end of each row

    Q: We are using Limagito File Mover, SQL as source, database is MSSQL.

    SQL statement (Source)

    select

      person_last_name as last_name

      , person_first_name as first_name

    from
    my_table

    Issue

    The value for the delimiter is appended at the end of each row. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? The output file is being automatically imported into a system, and that system does not like that extra delimiter at the end of the file. To explain what I’m talking about, the output to the file is currently like this:

    last_name,first_name,

    Doe,John,

    Smith,Mary,

    What we would like to see is this:

    last_name,first_name

    Doe,John

    Smith,Mary

    Thank you for any assistance you can give.

    A: In version v2021.1.15.0 we added some extra options:

    • SQL Common options (default Enabled):
      • Trailing Line Break: Determines whether to add a line Break after the last line or not.
      • Trailing Line Delimiter: When enabled the value for the delimiter is appended at the end of each row

    Please disable ‘Trailing Line Delimiter’. This will remove the delimiter at the end of each row.
