Hello

I am using sql loader to upload data from text file. I use to insert dates from text file to oracle table by using control file and syntax is column_9 position(27:36) date "dd/mm/yyyy".

Now I want to add 5 days on date column so what is the syntax of adding date I am using this -----
column_8 position(16:25) date "dd/mm/yyyy column_8+5"
but it is wrong

Please send me the syntax

Load values as they are. Then update that column:
update your_table set
  column_8 = column_8 + 5;

Please look into my code and error

control file:
COLUMN_8 16:25 10 DATE to_date(:column_8, 'dd/mm/yyyy') + 5

log file:
Record 1: Rejected - Error on table RAJEMITRA.LU824910915321210000001, column COLUMN_8.
ORA-00907: missing right parenthesis

text file:
LL 9 9 Z 22/08/2013

Please resolve

If line you posted really is part of your control file, then - to me - it looks invalid.

Compare your control file with mine (line that loads date value), find the differences, fix what's wrong.

Thanks for prompt reply!

My control file starts with following lines:

load data
infile 'LU824910915321210000001.txt'
badfile 'LU824910915321210000001.bad'
append into table LU824910915321210000001

That's irrelevant. I said that you should compare this
COLUMN_8 16:25 10 DATE to_date(:column_8, 'dd/mm/yyyy') + 5

with
datum "to_date(:datum, 'dd/mm/yyyy') + 5"

And those lines have nothing to do with COLUMN_8 so aren't helpful.
LF showed you what you need to do. If you think you've followed his instructions (check first) and it still doesn't work then post the full control file here in code tags.

column_8 "to_date(:column_8, 'dd/mm/yyyy') + 5" ,

Then where I have to give these line numbers (16:25)

Thank you so much

datum "to_date(:datum, 'dd/mm/yyyy') + 5"

It works...

Please, post CREATE TABLE statement, complete control file and several lines taken from the input file so that we'd see what's going on.
