Real Simple Question that I can't find anyplace.

Data I want to import:


"CHAR1","CHAR2","CHAR3","CHAR4","2011-12-07 18:20:12 UTC","CHAR5"

Using the sqlldr control files how to you import the date time with the "UTC" converting it to a non-timezone enabled table?

Tried:
datein timestamp "YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS TZR",

Failed: only works with TO_TIMESTAMP_TZ function

So I want to import and convert it to the current localtime in the sqlldr control file. Is that possible. Send option is to drop the UTC completely and even that I don't see as a ignore characters option.

Examples:
SELECT TO_TIMESTAMP_TZ('1999-12-01 11:00:00 UTC','YYYY-MM-DD HH:MI:SS TZR') FROM DUAL


Thanks

Mike
