[SOLVED] Data Migrator Synonym cannot read Source File with carriage return

I have a source file that includes CR (carriage return) as end of line character. Can't find any setting in Data Migrator that would allow such file to be correctly read by the ETL tool. Is there any development on that issue?

I'm going to guess that you are reading from a delimited file and you have embedded CR characters within a field.

In that case
1. Open the synonym and if the property panel isn't showing right click on the SEGMENT and select Properties.

2. Then right click on the SEGMENT name and select Edit all Properties.

3. Find the property PRESERVERFMT and select YES from the pull-down.

4. Save the synonym.

FYI - The solution was to add RDELIMITER=0x0D to identify correct end of line character.
