Split the input file using delimiter and output only few col

Postby balaryan » Tue Oct 18, 2016 4:03 am

Hi All,

I am trying to read an input file which has a fixed length of 300 bytes and each field in a record are delimited by "|" pipe symbol. For instance

Input file:

1|232|this is great|chennai|TN|604023|04/12/2018|12321.00|12312.00|N|this is for testing only|external remarks|0|0|3|Y|N|454.00|454.00
1|1232|this is great-o-great|Pune|MA|604023|04/11/2015|321.00|122.01|Y|this is for testing only|external remarks with comments|0|0|4|Y|N|54.00|14.00
1|8059|this is amazing|banglore|KA|298923|28/04/2013|321.00|662.00|N|this is for testing|external remarks|0|0|5|Y|N|344.00|984.00
1|092334|this is outstanding data|Mumbai|MA|23908043|18/08/2016|23321.00|656262.23|Y|this is for purely for testing only|external remarks|0|0|5|N|Y|323.00|1284.00
1|332|this is super|Pune|MA|6023|06/11/2010|9032.12|1233.01|Y|this is for testing only|comments|0|0|5|Y|N|154.00|124.00


I want to include only specific FIXED columns of each record from the input file say 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th,9th, 10th, 13th, 14th, 15th in the output file. Is there any option or way to select the records based on the column using the delimiter without fixed length record?

Kindly advice.

Also I missed one info. Last field in each record will be having either 'Y' or 'N'. Based on the value, if it is 'Y', we should place the record with specific column in output file 1 and if it is 'N' means output file 2.

Do you mean columns or fields? In each case in yuor sample the second column is the pipe character.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
