The previous exercise allows you to export data with fixed field lengths. If you want export data with variable field lengths and field delimiters, you can concatenate your fields with an expression in the SELECT clause as shown in the tutorial exercise bellow:

SQL> SET HEADING OFF;
SQL> SET FEEDBACK OFF;
SQL> SET LINESIZE 1000;
SQL> SPOOL \oraclexe\test\fyi_links.txt;
SQL> SELECT id ||','|| url ||','|| notes ||','|| counts
  ||','|| created FROM fyi_links;
......
SQL> SPOOL OFF;

You should see all records in fyi_links.txt with ',' delimited fields as shown here:

110,centerfyi.com,Session 1,,17-MAY-06
