in reply to remove a comma

You could also try fixing on a later step. Put the following small Perl script into chop-sql-comma.pl:

my $sql = do {local $/; <>}; $sql =~ s/\( ([^()]+) \) , \n\)/($1)\n)/x; print $sql;

Then run from a command prompt with perl "edit in place" mode:

C:\Users\...>perl -i.bak chop-sql-comma.pl CUSTOMER_NEW.txt

Update - after some more digging golfed to (again windows cmd prompt):

perl -Mv5.14.0 -i.bak -e^ "local $/;print <> =~ s/\( ([^()]+) \) , \n\)/($1)\n)/xr"^ CUSTOMER_NEW.txt
