Dear All,
I have small clarification I don't know whether it is possible i have a folder which has 100 datafiles where each datafile is named as 11/2/2009.txt,10/2/2009.txt.... and so on.Where all the datafiles are stored in a particular folder so that each file in the folder should get append to the table on datewise , my concern is whether we need to mention all the datafiles names in the control file or is there any method to load the data by use of sql*loader.




Thanks and Regards,
Hammer

Dear michel,
You made my doubt clear..I understood from you that it depends upon OS.The server in which the oracle ressides is on windows any sample script can you show with example so that i can mke an incisive analysis.



Thanks And Regards,

They are examples in Windows forum.
You can do something like:
for /f %f in ('dir/b') do sqlldr control=myctl data=%f

Dear Michel,

Thanks for your reply.Can you give me a precise example.Please correct me if i am wrong, does shell scripts syntax vary for different operating system. I have gone through the windows froum but i am not good in shell scripting to dig it up. Can you give me the example syntax to invoke the Oracle Loader into the shell scripting. I don't know whether this is possible, If i have 10 files named 01-JAN-2009.txt,02-JAN-2009.txt....inside a single folder.Inside the control file can i use (like *.txt) so that it will load all the files.


Thanka and Regards,
Hammer.

Dear Michel,
Google is not broken for me.In Command Prompt when I issue DIR c:\load\*.txt it displays all the text files corresponding to that folder.

C:\>DIR C:\LOAD\*.txt
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is EC8F-43E0

 Directory of C:\LOAD

01/16/2009  04:54 PM         3,852,881 10-JAN-2009.txt
01/16/2009  04:54 PM         3,852,881 load2.txt
01/16/2009  04:54 PM         3,852,881 load3.txt
               3 File(s)     11,558,643 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  13,988,012,032 bytes free


So in command prompt whether i need to issue the below statement.

c:\dir c:\load\*.txt do sqlldr test/test control=c:\controlfiles\myctl.ctl log=forall.log


Here i have one more clarification what needs to be mention in the infile i am confused in this part.


Thnaks and Regards,
Hammer

Michel's FOR statement should be part of a batch (.BAT) file.

Hi Michel,
When i issue the command dir /c in command prompt it dispalys all the files like .txt files,.log files and so on.From your post i came to know that since it is windows operating system we need to make use of the batch files to run the task.

correct me if i am wrong, below is my batch file
@echo off
for /f %f in ('dir c:\load\*.txt') do (sqlldr test/test control=c:\controlfiles\load.ctl log=test.log)
eof


So in the above batch file 'dir c:\load\*.txt' this part will give the results of all the file names corresponding to the particular folder and each .txt filename is assigned to the variable %f.But in control file what needs to be mentioned in the infile parameter.

Thanks and Regards,
Hammer

Dear Michel,

Below is the .bat file i have changed.

@echo off
for /f %f in ('dir c:\load\*.txt') do sqlldr test/test control=c:\controlfiles\load.ctl log=test.log data=%f
eof


My control file looks like below whether i need to mention %f in the infile parameter?

Can you give me a clue.

OPTIONS (ROWS=1000, readsize=12582912, BINDSIZE=12582912, SILENT=FEEDBACK,DISCARDS)
LOAD DATA
infile 'C:\BULK\LOAD1.TXT'
badfile 'C:\BULK\XYZ.BAD'
DISCARDFILE 'C:\BULK\XYZ.DSC'
INSERT INTO TABLE test
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS
(a,
b,
c,
d,
e,
f,
g,
h)

No, you need to remove infile from the control file.

Dear Michel,
I think i am near to the results.Below is my batch file.
@echo off
for /f %f in ('dir c:\load\*.txt') do sqlldr test/test control=c:\controlfiles\load.ctl log=test.log data=%f
eof


I named the batch file as test.bat in c drive.

My control file looks like below,

OPTIONS (ROWS=1000, readsize=12582912, BINDSIZE=12582912, SILENT=FEEDBACK,DISCARDS)
LOAD DATA
badfile 'C:\BULK\XYZ.BAD'
DISCARDFILE 'C:\BULK\XYZ.DSC'
INSERT INTO TABLE test
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS
(a,
b,
c,
d,
e,
f,
g,
h)


when i issue the below command it fetches the results saying that the file exist.


C:\>dir c:\load\*.txt
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is EC8F-43E0

 Directory of c:\load

01/16/2009  04:54 PM         3,852,881 10-JAN-2009.txt

But when i run the batch file test.bat in command prompt it says that the file not found.

If you use it in a batch file (not at command line) you have to use %%f

Try your script with "echo" instead of sqlldr to debug and get the correct syntax.

I can't see what you have on your screen and I don't know what you want for what you have on disk.
Note: don't explain it, show it.

               0 Dir(s)  13,762,519,040 bytes free

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>


2. When I issue the command in the command prompt whether the particular file exists it was there which was show above.

3. Below is my control file which is named as myctl.ctl which is located in the c drive

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>dir c:\controlfiles\myctl.ctl
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is EC8F-43E0

 Directory of c:\controlfiles

02/17/2009  04:53 PM               454 MYCTL.CTL
               1 File(s)            454 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  13,789,933,568 bytes free

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>


4. The content in the control file looks ike below.

OPTIONS (ROWS=1000, readsize=12582912, BINDSIZE=12582912, SILENT=FEEDBACK,DISCARDS)
LOAD DATA
badfile 'C:\BULK\XYZ.BAD'
DISCARDFILE 'C:\BULK\XYZ.DSC'
REPLACE
INTO TABLE PRODUCT
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ''
OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS
(a,
b,
c,
d,
e,
f,
g..) 


5. My data in the text files looks like below.

EX1021	2516800	0	0	0	1307	0	6R	LMV	LAX	432	22-Dec-07
EX1022	96800	0	0	0	1278	0	6R	LMV	ONT	432	22-Dec-07
EX1023	290400	0	0	0	1290	0	6R	HSV	MEX	432	22-Dec-07
EX1024	3194400	0	0	0	1307	0	6R	LAX	LMV	432	22-Dec-07
EX1025	580800	0	0	0	1553	0	6R	MEX	LAX	432	22-Dec-07


So the above description is for your kind reference,

I opened the command prompt and issued the below statement.

c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\>for /f %f in ('dir/b') do sqlldr test/test control=c:\controlfiles\myctl.ctl log=c:\controlfiles\test.log data=c:\load\%f


But when i issue dir/b in the command prompt it displays all the files.

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>dir /b
.businessobjects
.WASRegistry
._cie.trace.xml.lck

BrioPlatformInstall.log.0

Start Menu
test.ctl
test.dat
TEST.LOG
TEST1.LOG
TEST1.LOG;
test12.log
TEST123.LOG

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>


Now i have changed to dir/b in the below statement.

c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\>for /f %f in ('dir/b') do sqlldr test/test control=c:\controlfiles\myctl.ctl log=c:\controlfiles\test.log data=c:\load\%f



Could you correct me where i am missing.



Thanks and Regards,
Hammer

Run this from the operating system command line:

FOR /F %F IN ('DIR C:\LOAD\*.TXT/b') DO SQLLDR test/test CONTROL=C:\CONTROLFILES\MYCTL.CTL LOG=C:\CONTROLFILES\TEST.LOG DATA=C:\LOAD\%F

Or put this in a .bat file:

FOR /F %%F IN ('DIR C:\LOAD\*.TXT/b') DO SQLLDR test/test CONTROL=C:\CONTROLFILES\MYCTL.CTL LOG=C:\CONTROLFILES\TEST.LOG DATA=C:\LOAD\%%F
