Post create table statement and your control file.
Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals.

Hi,

Table Syntax has already been posted in my first post. Control file attached.

Oracle version is "Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.1.0 - "

You showed what you are getting, but not what you want instead. I am guessing from your description that when your phone_dig is null, you want 0 instead. If that is so, then you can just wrap an NVL function around your SUBSTR function. If this is not what you want, then please post an example of what you want. The following also serves as an example of how to post a complete test case inline, as Michel was asking for, not as attachments, with csv file, ctl file, and create table statement (not just structure).

-- test.csv:
9999888890,rec
8899898989,rec
9317517818,rec
9988901745,rec2
,rac
9988901745,rec2
abccdred,rac
ac123cdes,rac


-- test.ctl:
load data
infile 'test.csv'
into table test
fields terminated by "," optionally enclosed by '"'
TRAILING NULLCOLS
(MSISDN,
PREFERENCES,
PHONE_DIG "NVL (SUBSTR (:MSISDN, 1, 4), 0)")


-- DDL (create table):
CREATE TABLE test
  (MSISDN       VARCHAR2(20),
   PREFERENCES  VARCHAR2(100),
   PHONE_DIG    NUMBER)
/


-- load and results:
SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> HOST SQLLDR scott/tiger CONTROL=test.ctl LOG=test.log

SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> SET	 NULL null
SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> COLUMN preferences FORMAT A11
SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> SELECT * FROM test
  2  /

MSISDN               PREFERENCES  PHONE_DIG
-------------------- ----------- ----------
9999888890           rec               9999
8899898989           rec               8899
9317517818           rec               9317
9988901745           rec2              9988
null                 rac                  0
9988901745           rec2              9988
