Optimizing Delimited Flat File Sources

Optimizing Delimited Flat File Sources

If a source is a delimited flat file, you must specify the delimiter character to separate columns of data in the source file. You must also specify the escape character. The Integration Service reads the delimiter character as a regular character if you include the escape character before the delimiter character. You can improve session performance if the source flat file does not contain quotes or escape characters.
