Correct commands for "load data"

I have a problem with "load data." How do I load a file separated by "|"?

This depends on what the "|" character is separating.

The documentation for "load data" is located here and explains the different potential uses of a separator.

If "|" separates fields, use fields terminated by "|." If "|"separates rows, use lines terminated by "|."
