Hi All I have a data file I am trying to import into redshift (postgress mpp database). I am trying to import into postgres with a '|' delimiter. But some data, has the '|' in the string data itself, for example :
73779087|"UCGr4c0_zShyHbctxJJrJ03w"|"ItsMattSpeaki ng | SuPra"
So I tried this sed command :
sed -i -E "s/(.+|)(.+|)|/\1\2\\|/g" inputfile.txt >outputfile.txt
Any ideas on what is wrong with the sed command, to replace the | in the last string with a \| escape character so that Redshift will not view this as a delimiter ? Any help is appreciated.
