BCP And Commas/double-quotes

Jul 30, 1999

Hello all,

I am using SQL Server 6.5 SP5a.

I have to use bcp to import two text files everyday for database update. The problem is that some of the character fields that are being imported have double-quotes and/or commas in them. When these are imported into the SQL Server tables additional double quotes are being added into these strings.



I have searched through BOL and have not been able to find any information.

Does anyone know what is causing this and if so how to correct it?

Losing Double Quotes??

Aug 10, 2007


I have written a little bit of VB.NET code that basically takes three strings, transforms them, and returns a single string to be stored in my table.

I am running into a strange problem, however... for some reason, a number of my processed rows are missing a pair of double quotes (").

The vast majority of the records are formatted properly, and have the double quotes in the expected locations.

The most frustrating thing about it is that I have included the offensive input strings in my Test.sql test script, and when I step through the entire routine, the return value is perfect...

i apologize for being the worst ever at posting questions here, please let me know if i can add anything

Double Quotes In CSV File

Oct 24, 2006

I have a lot of data coming in from CSV files.  I have many CSV files (~20), with varying amounts of data- but some are quite large (largest file is ~230mb)

I'm trying to import it into a SQL database via SSIS, but the data is a little bit frustrating. 

I have data that looks like this:

"Text from vendor ""Vendor Name, Inc."" blah blah", "Next string", "", 1234

Many things to notice here - as well you can imagine some of the difficulties here.

After parsing, this data should have 4 columns-

Column1                                                                          Column2              Column3               Column4

Text From Vendor "Vendor Name, Inc." blah blah      Next string            <blank>                1234

The biggest problems stem from the double quotes mixed in with the comma because it is a comma delimited file with quotes as the text qualifier.  The other problem is the double quotes with blank text ... which prevents me from doing a replace on the double quotes ... I think ...

What would be your suggestions to help me parse this out?  (don't forget, some of these are large files with about 260,000 records- )

Thanks in advance,

SP Parameter With Imbedded Double Quotes

Apr 30, 1999

From Access97 I need to execute a SQL 7.0 stored procedure that accepts several input parameters. A few of these are strings that can have imbedded single and/or double quotes (used as feet and inch identifiers). I've tried extra double quotes around the string, square brackets etc. in every combination that I can think of, with minimul success.

Can anyone provide the correct syntax?

Double Quotes In Error Messages!

Jul 3, 2007

I have a problem when trying to display an error message from sql server 2005 on a web page with an alert (javascript command).

The Sql server 2005 returns a message like:

Insert statement conflicted with foreign key constraint "bla bla". The conflict occured indatabase "databasename", table "tablename", column 'columnname'.

In sql server 2000 the error message is the same except all names (constraint, database, table) is in single quotation marks; just like the columnname in the above example.

Is it a configurable issue on the sql server. I would prefer not to solve this issue on a number of different web pages!

Thanks in advance.

Double Quotes In ASCII File

Feb 1, 2006

I've an issue with double-quotes in CSV file. One of the columns may contain this kind of value: "STATUS ""H"" "

I've got quote set to "

The file source fails on such records.

I found this thread and Scott tells us there that the file can't contain " in data.

Is this 100% correct?

I've got mutliple text columns and the pain is that I don't know which column might have these cases in future. To create a script means to write my own file parser for all files I use.

Any ideas?

BCP Output - Putting Double Quotes Around Text

Feb 10, 2006


How can I program BCP to output text items in double quotes (")?
Here is an example (please try it) that trys to output some columns from a table to csv file. However, due to the existence of commas within the fields, the comma separation gets messed up.


IF EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM sysobjects WHERE name = 'mcg1')


INSERT INTO mcg1 (Address_1, City) VALUES ('100 Road1, Suburb1' , 'BigCity1')
INSERT INTO mcg1 (Address_1, City) VALUES ('200 Road2, Suburb2' , 'BigCity2')


Exec Master..xp_Cmdshell 'bcp "SELECT Address_1, City FROM mcg1" queryout "C:mcg1.csv" -c -t,"'

The output I get is below. You can see how the use of commas in the text makes the comma separate list all confused
100 Road1, Suburb1,BigCity1
200 Road2, Suburb2,BigCity2

Thus what I want is
"100 Road1, Suburb1","BigCity1"
"200 Road2, Suburb2","BigCity2"

You can do this OK in DTS by specifying the text identifier to be double-quotes.
I do NOT want to use DTS and want to be able to do via a T-SQL procedure. Note that the real table I will export from has numeric datatypes and I would prefer NOT to wrap them in double-quotes too.

Thus, how can I alter the Exec Master..xp_Cmdshell command, to wrap each text field in double quotes. I may have to use a format file in which case please provide the format file too.

Thanks in advance

Trouble Importing Data With Double Quotes

Jul 23, 2007

I have to import a flat file with commas and double quotes as the text qualifier in a SSIS package. However, when I try to import the data into a table, the data moves the information to right, therefore, the last field will capture mulitple fields worth of data. When I create the Connection Manager for the flat file, I have the format as [Delimited] and Text qualifier as ["]. I do not check the unicode button, but under Advanced, make each field a Unicode string [DT-WSTR]. I have included a sample of my data below.

"Internal Sales Document ",9/23/2005 0:00,0.58,"STORES ISSUES","TAPE, PACKING, 2" X 55 YD, CLE ","EP0079771","US363800","2065431980"
"Internal Sales Document ",10/7/2005 0:00,3.76,"STORES ISSUES","Post-It Note Pads, 3"x3", Cana ","EP0079770","US363799","2065431980"

As I highlighted above, I will have a description field that will have double quotes and commas within the text before the end of field.

Please let me know if this is user error. Thanks,

Newbie Q: Inserting Strings With Single Or Double Quotes

Sep 15, 1999

Hi: Got a newbie question that's been giving me fits! Basically I'm replicating what's going on here on this board...creating a "posting" interface that takes the "message" and inserts it into a table using an ADODB connection (using INSERT INTO table name,tablecells and VALUES)

However, if someone types in a single or double quote in the body of the message, I get an error similar to this:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Line 1: Incorrect syntax near 's'.

/test.asp, line 29

I think I understand why it's happening (SQL is interpreting the quote mark as a string-end), but what am I supposed to do to get around it?

How To Import Flat Files With Single And Double Quotes Imbedded In Them?

Aug 8, 2006

I've got a flat file data source, that is to large to edit with most Windows apps on my server that contains both single and double quote characters that I need to load in a varchar column.

So I attempted to do it with a Replace in data transformation, but I can't get SSIS to allow me to use a variable or pair of single or double quotes within the replace.

If I don't replace the single quote characters with a pair then the records containing these characters all end up in my failed records output file.

Here are 5 example property legal descriptions from my FLAT FILE data source:

COM 441'6" N OF SW/C OF NW4 OF SEC 22-29-20 ELY1340' N200' CROSSING THE CNTR OF TR AT 100 WLY1240' S200' TO POB CONTAINING 6 3/10 ACRE MOL

Form Field Returns Name With Double Quotes Instead Of Single Quote During Update Process.

Oct 3, 2007

I've a weird problem in my application. In of the pages, while trying to update the text box "Name", when I enter Linda's test, it gets saved as Linda''s test. I'm not sure if this is a problem due to SQL server. When I look at the stored procedure, I don't anything different. Also, when I update the table directly in SQL Server, the result is displayed in single quote. But if I update the field thro' the application, the returned name is with double quotes instead of single quote.  Has any of you faced problems like this? What am I missing? What do I need to do to get the name saved the way I entered (with single quotes) instead of double quotes?
