problem with sqlldr [message #309983] Sun, 30 March 2008 21:09 Go to next message

hi all,
I am trying to have sqlldr running against a file:
C:\oratest\20080318

Is it possible I get SQL*Loader-500: Unable to open file and 503 file not found just because the file name does not have an extension?

I can see that any file name I try it looks after whateverFileName.dat! Is there a way to have sqlldr working with files that do not have extensions?

Thanks,
kowalsky

Oracle and SQL*Loarder don't care of extensions.
A file name is from the first to the last character.

For more you have to post your statement and file names.

I saw in windows there is actually saved as .txt extension but in its name the extension is not shown.
When I type the name without extension it shows no file.

Quote:

GO TO MY COMPUTER->TOOLS->FOLDER OPTIONS->VIEW And uncheck the option Hide Extensions For Known File Types

Then you are going to see full name of your file.



Can you please post the DATA FILE And CONTROL FILE.How the hell we are going to know what is the problem.

load data
infile 'C:\oratest\20080318'
BADFILE 'c:\oratest\badsyno.txt'
APPEND
into table synotest
fields terminated by "|" optionally enclosed by '"'
(id4, cityname, maxtemp, mintemp, precip DEFAULTIF(precip = "TR") , sog)

When I run this, sqlldr issues error messges as follows:
SQL*Loader-500: Unable to open file (C:\oratest\myfile.dat)
SQL*Loader-553: file not found
SQL*Loader-509: System error: The system cannot find the file specified
SQL*Loader-2026: the load was aborted because SQL Loader cannot continue.

If I change the extension of the file, then everything works (more specifically, if I change the name of the file to be 20080318.dat, then I can leave the INFILE statement unchanged, it will find the file),

thanks,
kowalsky

My freind how many times i have to tell you please post the Data file 20080318 on forum../fa/1620/0/

I think this is not complete file name 'C:\oratest\20080318'
that you are using in infile parameter.

Well rajatatrewal,
you'll just have to make that leap of faith and believe me on my word. I may not know why this is happening but I surely do know what my files are called ... actually, you made me curious ... take a look at the picture and try to tell me what is happening. I guess you don't need the data in the file ...

Why don't you want to post your control file as requested?

APPEND

What is the relation between c:\testdir\syno.ctl you actually use and c:\oratest\... you think you use?

Michel,
I am sorry for creating so much confusion ...
I know I should have paid attention, but the scripts run on at least three different machines, I've been in front of each and opened the forum and pasted whatever was on that particular machine.
On each machine, though, everything is consistent.

Let's take this one below:

C:\TestDir>dir
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 305E-C541

Directory of C:\TestDir

03/31/2008 11:06 AM <DIR> ..
03/13/2008 09:47 AM 5,990 20080313
03/26/2008 04:35 PM 5,989 20080325
03/31/2008 11:21 AM 826 20080325.bad
03/31/2008 11:52 AM 200 syno.ctl
03/31/2008 11:52 AM 1,414 syno.log

Thanks for posting that answer. I remember running into that problem a couple years ago and couldn't remember how I solved it.

Too many things to remember with Oracle !!

No idea; however, how much would it cost if you actually add an extension to that file?

Change your file name so that it has an extension and use the same extension in your control file, so that you do not have conflicts with default values. You can use .dat or .txt or .csv or whatever you like.

*Maybe* it is possible; you'd need to wait for someone who uses AIX and knows its tips & tricks. I'm not one of these people.
