I have a flat file with multiple lines that belong to one person account and i need to bring all lines to one line making them as one line of comma separate type data. For example as below:
DateIn" 2007/01/01 account:155555
name" john smith Age: 18
--------
DateIn" 2007/01/01 account:166665
name" josh sammy Age: 20

With this example, how can i join the 2 lines to one line then i join the final 2 lines in one line. By the way, i have been trying to work on this in my sql server 2000.

Thanks,

ME2007.

Trim leading/trailing characters.


DECLARE @value VARCHAR(1000)
DECLARE @pat varchar(10)
SET @pat = '%[^ ' + char(09) + char(10) + ']%'

SET @value = CHAR(10) + ' ' + CHAR(10) + 'message test ' + char(10) + ' values ' + CHAR(10) + ' ' + CHAR(10) + CHAR(10) + ' ' + CHAR(10)

SELECT SUBSTRING(
@value,
PATINDEX(@pat, @value),
LEN(@value) - PATINDEX(@pat, @value) - PATINDEX(@pat, REVERSE(@value)) + 2)
