There's no "4th position" in a table (unless you keep information about it using, for example, a sequence); order of records is to be done using the ORDER BY clause of the SELECT statement. So, insert it afterwards using the INSERT INTO statement or make sure it doesn't fail during the loading session (so that it ends up in either BAD or DISCARD file).

I have no idea what you have asked in the second question. Could you explain it once again, please?

Fix Shiva's record so that it won't be discarded any more. Or, alternatively, modify table description (column datatype, length, constraints, ...) so that this record gets inserted.

Once again: there is NO 4th position. Order of records is achieved only by ORDER BY clause.

You could, however, add a sequence number (if you could) to the flat file so that it would look like
1 praveen
2 pradeep
3 keerthi
4 shiva
5 suma
Doing so, after loading session you'd be able to say "OK, Shiva's number is 4".

Your second file isn't comma separated - the only comma(s) I see are those in the SAL column. So, either you didn't post real sample file or there's no problem at all.

Put " around your figures.
If you can't then tell me how someone can say that 10,100,999 is 10100999 or 10 and 100 and 999 or 10100 and 999?

If you can answer this last question then you can do it with SQL*Loader. If you can't then how a program can?

Seems you don't understand my answer. There is no difference between number of strings.
How can you tell that "praveen,kumar,naidu" is "praveenkumarnaidu" or "praveenkumar" and "naidu" or "praveen" and "kumar" and "naidu" or... if your fields are separated by ","?

Hi
My flat file consists of large amount of data

sample flat file:
empno ename job
102,praveen,kumar,naidu,manager
104,keerthi,laxman,analyst

where do i need to specify '' so that it can treat the whole field as a single coloumn
as the flat file doesnt have 'praveen,kumar,naidu'and it is not possible to do it manually
can i specify it in the control file
can u provide me with a sample control file as to how i do it

By recreating your flat file with quotes around the data that you want in the single column.

If I give you this file:
empno ename job
102,michel,cadot,directeur,general
104,jean,marcel,louis,consultant
10,100,charlotte,corday,meurtriere

I said you, fields are separated by ','
Can you give me for each line:
- empno
- ename
- job

Just answer this question, with just what I gave.

Michel

How do you get the file?
Which process/program generates it?
Just modify this one to put " or ' or any character you want at right place.
