Delimiter to be changed for CSV generated by BIX



Due to an issue with downstream processing, the delimiter used for CSV generated by BIX must be changed with Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) 7.2.  
​User requires the delimiter to be something other than a comma.

Error Messages

Not applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

Not applicable.

Root Cause

It is expected that BIX will use a comma as the default delimiter.


To change default delimiter, use the -l parameter and specify what character to use instead of a comma.

Note, that the following characters are not available for use as delimiters, as they signify other things to BIX:

Double-quote (“)
Asterisk (*)
Hyphen (-)

BIX also does not support multi-line delimiters. If the delimiter length is greater than 1, then BIX reports an error.
