Fixed Width Column text files

Hi there,
im probably asking a stupud question, but I have problems loading a fixed width column text file. Talend data prep is trying to create columns based on delimiters that are not there. How do I change this behavior so I can load fixed width columns?

Re: Fixed Width Column text files

Hi,
So far, talend data prep 1.2 don't support for a positional file(a fixed width column text file).
You can use talend DI studio to convert your positional file to a delimited file.
The work flow should be:tfileinputpositional-->tfileoutputdelimited
Best regards
Sabrina
