How do I force a linefeed character using SQL? I created a report (see below) but when I e-mailed this report from Unix the carriage return was not interpreted correctly.
I want the results to look like the following:
Invoice Number: 123456
Order Number: 444422222
Customer Number: abc123
When I e-mail this file using elm (to Microsoft Outlook or cc:Mail), I get the following :
Invoice Number: 123456 Order Number:44422222 Customer Number: abc123
The line break is not recognized. Any thoughts??
Here’s the code:
set verify offset echo offset feedback offset linesize 30set space 0set heading offcolumn invoice_num format fold_after 1column sales_ord_num format fold_after 1column rapid_txn_id format fold_after 1column launch_dt format fold_after 1column inv_dt format fold_after 1spool &1select 'Invoice Number : &1' invoice_num, 'Sales Order Number: ', sales_ord_num, 'RAPID Txn Number : ', oh.mepr rapid_txn_id, 'Order Date : ', to_char(oh.timestamp,'MM/DD/YY') launch_dt, 'Ship Date : ', to_char(inv_dt,'MM/DD/YY') inv_dtfrom sales_ord so, inv_hdr inv, ord_hdr ohwhere so.sales_ord_id = inv.sales_ord_id
Hm, this looks like Oraclese… 🙂
I don’t know if this will work, but you might try sending a carriage return and line feed combination?like CHAR(10)+CHAR(13)?at the end of each column name. That may do it for you.
