Specify a field separator

To insert a separator character between each field of data within a record in the transfer file:

  1. Open the transaction description.
  2. In the Transaction description dialog, click Options.
  3. Specify the field separator in the Transaction description options dialog.

    Using quotation marks together with some other type of field separator gives the most information to the target system, since many systems will instantly know whether to treat a field as alphanumeric or numeric based on the quotation marks.

  4. Click OK.
Note The last field in a record is followed by the separator character.
