How to remove newline / special character from a column in Snowflake Datawarehouse

REPLACE - Removes all occurrences of a specified string, and optionally replaces them with another string. 

For example, to remove a newline character \n, use chr(10) as it represents a newline character: 


REPLACE( <subject> , <pattern> [ , <replacement> ] )


select replace(replace (string_col, chr(10), chr(13)) from your-table-name;

Result: data without the newline character
