SQL*LOADER question.

List,
OS Novell 4.2 Oracle 7.3.4.5
I have a table test desc as fld1 number(5,3), fld2 varchar2(1). The control file has ,(comma) delimited, optionally enclosed in " (quotes).  The data file contains 99.999,C
It fails with an ORA-01401: inserted value to large for column. Question. Why did Oracle show an ORA-01401 when the problem is the "C" value was not enclosed in quotes. I change the data to be 99.999,"C" and it loads properly.  I would have thought that it would display something to the effect that I was trying to insert a non quoted value into a character field. Any thoughts or ideas?
