I have a file saved in comma delimited .CSV format. I'm using the CPYFRMIMPF command in an attempt copy it into a database file/table. One of the fields (columns) has strings wrapped in double quotes and has values of commas inside the string -- a description field. The CPYFRMIMPF seems to ignore the double quotes and interprets the commas as field separators. Is there a workaround for this?
The CPYFRMIMPF command does support the character string processing that you want, you just need to make sure that you specify the double quote character (") for the STRDLM parameter on the command.
