You can create tab separated files from within sqlplus using the spool functionality e.g.:


set linesize 500
set trimspool on
set verify off
set termout off
set echo off
set feedback off
set heading off
set pagesize 0

spool filename.tsv
spool off;

The tsv file can be opened in excel as normal.

Riverstone was also using the names ajju and dani1234 to avoid infraction limits. The latter two names have been banned.

Hi Colshine,
tried your steps , but data is coming in flat file with spaces,expecting the data in excel format or with comma seperated values.

The spaces are actually tabs - excel recognises tabs as a valid delimiter and will use them to split the data into columns.

To create a csv file you just need to change the DEFINE DELIMITER parameter to comma and update the filename to csv.

The rest is fine as it is.
