Hello All,

I finally managed to get fix for my issue, I am sure this is not the cleanest way to deal but still it solved our issue

here is the main logic

cat file | tr -d '\n' > temp1

This will remove all the \n from file and will generate new file with single line with ^M char. We already know that when ^M comes it's end of line so now we need to replace ^M with new line

sed 's/[^M]/\n/g' temp1 > file

This will fix the issue of removing ^M char from your file and will also remove any unwated new lines from your .cvs file on unix.

Now my line looks like following

Special Olympics Missouri,None,Muller+Company,MULLE001,4498,MS-80124-58-SOMO-ME-US-Special Olympics Basketball - St Louis,,Marc Hale,C1-MS-IS,,45305,2/18/2008,3/9/2008,N/A,MySpace ROS Leaderboard (728x90) ,cpm,1.45,"434,483",0,0,0%,0,"4739 Belleview Kansas City, KS 64112 United States",Net 30,Bill on Delivery - 3rd Party,jsydnor,N/A,Associated Profile,N/A,0,0,0,0,N/A,0.00%,N,February 2008 - February 2008,"248,276",360,0,0,N/A,0,0%,0,,N/A,N/A,N/A,"16 - 18, 18 - 24",N/A,8,N/A,United States,St.Louis-609,N/A,N/A,Feb-08,2/29/2008,2/1/2008,USD,2/18/2008,3/9/2008,,,,3832,0,452,100%,,,FIM,MySpace Standard Terms,0,,,N/A,N/A,N/A,N/A

Thanks to everyone on websites who helped me to get this fixed Smilie

bzexe - compress executable files in place SYNOPSIS
bzexe [ name ... ] DESCRIPTION
The bzexe utility allows you to compress executables in place and have them automatically uncompress and execute when you run them (at a penalty in performance). For example if you execute ``bzexe /bin/cat'' it will create the following two files: -r-xr-xr-x 1 root bin 9644 Feb 11 11:16 /bin/cat -r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin 24576 Nov 23 13:21 /bin/cat~ /bin/cat~ is the original file and /bin/cat is the self-uncompressing executable file. You can remove /bin/cat~ once you are sure that /bin/cat works properly. This utility is most useful on systems with very small disks. OPTIONS
-d Decompress the given executables instead of compressing them. SEE ALSO
bzip2(1), znew(1), zmore(1), zcmp(1), zforce(1) CAVEATS
The compressed executable is a shell script. This may create some security holes. In particular, the compressed executable relies on the PATH environment variable to find gzip and some other utilities (tail, chmod, ln, sleep). BUGS
bzexe attempts to retain the original file attributes on the compressed executable, but you may have to fix them manually in some cases, using chmod or chown. BZEXE(1)
