Import and export flat files containing backslashes
Posted by: Darin Georgiev

I am importing text files using:
load data local infile 'E:\flatfile' into table `table1` fields terminated by '';
The file contains some backslashes, which seems to be ignored by mysql, so these rows enter into my database shifted to the left.
How can I load such file and then export it using:
SELECT * FROM `table1` into outfile 'e:/flatfile' fields terminated by '';
preserving the backslashes in the data?

Thank you,
