With the system-defined CSV conversion feature, you can convert data in the CSV format to a JSON or DATASET data type with storage format Avro or CSV. This section describes the various table operators that allow for conversion.

Examples in the section use the following table several times:

CREATE TABLE myCSVTable09(
	id INTEGER,
	csvFile CLOB);

csv09.txt (note that the record delimiter is shown as '\n')
Item_ID,Item_Name,Item_Color,Item_Style,Quantity_Purchased,Item_Price,Total_Price \n55,bicycle,red,boys,1,100.00,100.00 \n88,toy boat,pink,,1,15.10,15.10 \n105,soap,,,1,0.99,0.99|1

.import vartext file csv09.txt
USING (c1 VARCHAR(1000), c2 INTEGER)
INSERT INTO myCSVTable09(:c2,:c1);

The CSV data is included for reference:

Item_ID Item_Name Item_Color Item_Style Quantity_ Purchased Item_Price Total_Price
55 bicycle red boys 1 100.00 100.00
88 toy boat pink ? 1 15.10 15.10
