especially on this

http://www.orafaq.com/node/848

The ORA-29913 error can also happen in external tables when you don't grant read and write permissions to the directory.
And always post your Oracle version with 4 digits.

1/ Yes.
2/ And you need to be sure that the instance owner has access to the directory and file.

"D:\BPEL" should be a directory on a database server, not your local PC. Is that the case?

Cause: the reject limit has been reached.

Action: Either cleanse the data, or increase the reject limit.



And always search before posting.
Always add/provide your Oracle version with 4 digits along with your post.

Check your data, they do not fit your table description.
Check you transfered your file in ASCII format (and not BINARY one).

Check your data .Try to populate some simple data without any spaces in start and end and see everything fine.

I got this error some time back , but not able to recall the resoloution.
