Hi Barbara,
This could be a silly mistake, but the SQL loader somehow is loading only first record. The data file is a csv and the end of line character is a new line. Some text fields have multiple new lines.

Here is my control file

load data
infile '/home/devo/c0397105/RuleImport/testLoad/dummyLoad.csv'
Truncate
into table DUMMY_LOAD_TABLE
fields terminated by "," optionally enclosed by '"'
( ID "to_number(:ID)",REQUESTED_GROUP,PURPOSE,COMMENTS)

CREATE TABLE DUMMY_LOAD_TABLE
(
ID NUMBER NOT NULL,
REQUESTED_GROUP VARCHAR2(100),
PURPOSE VARCHAR2(200),
COMMENTS VARCHAR2(300),
CONSTRAINT PK_DUMMY_LOAD_TABLE PRIMARY KEY(ID) USING INDEX TABLESPACE INDEX_TS
)

2/7 - updated for GNCS rollout"
4,IST Helpline,Notify HL when Austin voice systems are been changed,"8/3 - n/a for corp sys rollout
2/7 - updated for GNCS rollout"
5,IST Helpline,Notify HL when retail stores are been changed,"8/3 - n/a for corp sys rollout

UPDATED 7/15
We don't have Retail resource type as Dependent System now; the rule will be changed later when Dependent Systems can accept resource types other than application"

CONTINUEIF might be the answer. Here's an example based on information you posted. If your real situation differs, code might need to be changed. This solution is based on the fact that the last character in a multi-line record is "t" (in "rollout").

Furthermore, sample data you posted is invalid - the last line lacks in closing double quotes sign; also, where does "updated 7/15" belong to? That's why I modified your data a little bit.

Here's the control file:
load data
infile *
Truncate
continueif last = 't'
into table DUMMY_LOAD_TABLE
fields terminated by "," optionally enclosed by '"'
( 
  ID "to_number(:ID)",
  REQUESTED_GROUP,
  PURPOSE,
  COMMENTS
 )
 
begindata
3,IST Helpline,Notify HL when corporate voice systems are been changed,"8/3 - n/a for corp sys rollout
2/7 - updated for GNCS rollout"
4,IST Helpline,Notify HL when Austin voice systems are been changed,"8/3 - n/a for corp sys rollout
2/7 - updated for GNCS rollout"
5,IST Helpline,Notify HL when retail stores are been changed,"8/3 - n/a for corp sys rollout"
8,LF Littlefoot,Notify HL when retail stores are been changed,"8/3 - n/a for corp sys rollout
8/7 next line"

Execution (always specify and review the LOG file!):
SQL> $sqlldr scott/tiger@ora10 control=test.ctl log=test.log
