Thanks Bob.

The DBA at my workplace pointed me to the mistake i was making in exporting the attributes; exactly the same reason what you mentioned below. I was trimming after casting all attributes as varchar instead of char. I was using "substr" function in some places as well. I didnt realize that the output of trim and substr functions is of "varchar" datatype; evenif I "cast" it as char within the trim and substr functions. That caused the problem. I was able to get rid of the junk characters as well.


thank you all.
