I don't think you can generate a file with a row terminator of empty string. syntactically, if you opened the file in notepad or a text editor, how you you identify the end of one record and the start of the next.

It would need to be a new line () carriage return (\r) CRLF (\r) or something else.

what weird system is using that symbol as a delimter.

Can you post 2-3 lines of your data, this may help us debug the issue
