Dear all,

I am trying to insert rows in two tables using sql loader.

I have two tables in database as

SQL> desc name
Name Null? Type
---------------------- -------- ------------
ID NUMBER
NAME VARCHAR2(20)
BD DATE

SQL> desc name3
Name Null? Type
--------------------- ----------- -------------
ID NUMBER
NAME VARCHAR2(20)
BD DATE


I created controlfiles as

[oracle@DBTEST sqldri]$ cat datafile.ctl
options (direct=true)
load data
INFILE *
into table name truncate
when id='1'
(id position(1:1)integer external, name position (3:6) , bd position (8:40) date "mon-dd-yyyy")
into table name3 truncate
when id='3'
(id position(1:1) integer external, name position (3:6), bd position (8:40) date "mon-dd-yyyy")
begindata
1 adil dec-10-2009
3 masum nov-19-2009


when i run sql loader as

[oracle@DBTEST sqldri]$ sqlldr hr/hr control=/u01/sqldri/datafile.ctl

Your fields are not fixed length, for instance "masum" is not 4 characters but 5.
Use the option "fields terminated by ' '".
There are examples in the documentation and here, in this (sub)forum.

Michel

when id='1'
fields terminated by ','
(id, name, bd date "mon-dd-yyyy")
into table name3 truncate
when id='3'
fields terminated by ','
(id, name, bd date "mon-dd-yyyy")
begindata
1,adil,dec-10-2009
1,Rahman,Oct-13-2008
3,masum,nov-19-2009


Here... First 2 rows were inserted into NAME table...

SQL> select * from name;

The fields are not terminated by a comma but by a space.

What's inside the log file?

Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code, use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.

And post CREATE TABLE statements to create your tables then I should be able to test myself instead of to just try to guess.

Regards
Michel

When you load into multiple tables, even when the fields are delimited, you need to reset the position for each table after the first one.

options (direct=true)
load data
INFILE *
into table name truncate
when id='1'
fields terminated by ','
(id, name, bd date "mon-dd-yyyy")
into table name3 truncate
when id='3'
fields terminated by ','
(id position(1),
name, bd date "mon-dd-yyyy")
begindata
1,adil,dec-10-2009
1,Rahman,Oct-13-2008
3,masum,nov-19-2009
