Hi ,

I am using sqlloader for loading the data into database by using csv file.My csv file is delimited by comma in that i am having a column which is having the , and line feeds targeted to load into a long data type.for example as bellow
descri,dfdfdfd,dfdfdf,
sdfsdf,

dfsdfd,

i want to move this column data into a single table column.But due to because of delimited "," it is splitting into number of columns

Thanks,
Srinivas

If you do not say to SQL*Loader you a comma as delimiter it does not split the value.
If comma is not the delimiter of fields then do not tell to SQL*Loader it is the delimiter.

How could SQL*Loader knows a comma is a separator between 2 values or part of a single value?
If you can say that with words then you can do it in SQL*Loader.
The usual way is to enclose the value containing comma between a character that is not part of the value, " for instance.

I said what you can do and what you can't.
If I give you (with comma as a delimiter):
kjhkjh,ljljlk,edz,oioiu,cffss
Can you tell me what are the values?

Regards
Michel

OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' will handle that part there is no issue,But now my problem is just want to handle the linefeed.

Thanks,

Again, how will you decide whether it is the continuing column value or the new row? Or does the file contain only one row?
You may have a look at CONCATENATE/CONTINUEIF clauses: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e22490/ldr_control_file.htm#i1005509
