Hi Friends,

I have a file in Unix which i need to load into a table. But there are some conditions for doing so ....

For eg : the file has following columns ;

Mkt_Id Mrkt_Name
CA Canada
IN India

1> While loading this file into the table, i need to check if there exists a record in the table for a particular market ID.... If it exists then i have to updatte the record in the table.

2> If the market_id from the file is not present in the table then i need to insert this record into the table....

Is there anyway this can be done using SQL LOADER ??

If not .. then any other way , that i can achieve this .....

Thanks in advance

Sql*loader cannot update.
Please search the forum before posting.

Workaround is to load the data as is and use sql means
use external tables.
