Hi

I have a below example of data which is comma seperated, the first column is date and time which has been seperated by comma which is ideally a single columna and i have to load them in single column.

05/16/12,13:15:51,resn-j36-ctc119,"USR:ERM PMACTION END CONV ALIAS ASSIGN",0.480,P,pmoffice,14580,18188,475832935039,RXQBHT20431,192.168.97.146,0,"FinishAddEncounterAction:E",2,"200","",""

05/16/12,13:15:55,resn-j36-ctc119,"USR:ERM PMACTION DATA COMMIT",4.933,P,pmoffice,14580,18188,475832935039,RXQBHT20431,192.168.97.146,0,"200",0,"117106","237",""

my Control file is below

load data
BADFILE '/backup/temp/rajesh/CERNER/BadFiles/FILENAME'
append into table TEMP_CERNER_RESP_TIME_LND
TRAILING NULLCOLS
(
TRANSACTION_END_TIME TIMESTAMP
TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' "TO_TIMESTAMP(:TRANSACTION_START_TIME,'DD/MM/YYYY HH24:MI:SSXFF')",
INSTALLATION_ID CHAR
TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' substr(FILENAME,1,INSTR(FILE_NAME,'_',1,1) -1),
'AUTO-'||To_Char(prt_trs_id_seq.nextval),
TRANSACTION_ID CHAR
TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"',
SERVER_ID CHAR
TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"',
CLINICAL_TRANSACTION_ID CHAR
TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"',
RESPONSE_TIME DECIMAL EXTERNAL

TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"',
EXTERNAL_SERVICE_ID CHAR

)

My troule is to load 05/16/12,13:15:51 into single column as 05/16/12 13:15:51. Please help me as the ',' is used as a feild seperation and data and time is also seperated by comma

Hi

If you pointing out the spelling mistake then i am amending the last line.

My trouble is to load 05/16/12,13:15:51 into single column as 05/16/12 13:15:51. Please help me as the ',' is used as a feild seperation and data and time is also seperated by comma.

How Oracle can know if it is not a field separator but part of the data when you told it is a field separator?
I see 3 ways:
- enclosed the data between " (as you told Oracle)
- change the value in the file before loading it (a simple sed statement)
- use fix length syntax for the first field (if it actually is of fix length)

Regards
Michel

Many thanks
Michel,

3 option suit me if i can do both fix lenght and comma seperated.
first and second is difficult as the data volume is around 7-8 millions every day

Yes, you can use both positional and delimited field declarations. See this Barbara's message.

Another option is to declare the first two comma-separated values as boundfillers, then concatenate them together as a calculated column. Since you did not provide your table structure, I have provided a simplified demonstration below, loading just the first column. Note that the boundfillers must be in the order they are encountered in the data file and the calculated column must be at the end after all other fields.

-- test.dat:
05/16/12,13:15:51,resn-j36-ctc119,"USR:ERM PMACTION END CONV ALIAS ASSIGN",0.480,P,pmoffice,14580,18188,475832935039,RXQBHT20431,192.168.97.146,0,"FinishAddEncounterAction:E",2,"200","",""
05/16/12,13:15:55,resn-j36-ctc119,"USR:ERM PMACTION DATA COMMIT",4.933,P,pmoffice,14580,18188,475832935039,RXQBHT20431,192.168.97.146,0,"200",0,"117106","237",""


-- test.ctl:
load data
INFILE test.dat
append into table TEMP_CERNER_RESP_TIME_LND
TRAILING NULLCOLS
(filler1 BOUNDFILLER TERMINATED BY ',',
filler2 BOUNDFILLER TERMINATED BY ',',
column1 "TO_TIMESTAMP (:filler1 || ' ' || :filler2, 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS')"
)


-- table, load, and results:
SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> CREATE TABLE TEMP_CERNER_RESP_TIME_LND
  2    (column1  TIMESTAMP)
  3  /

Table created.

SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> HOST SQLLDR scott/tiger CONTROL=test.ctl LOG=test.log

SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> SELECT * FROM temp_cerner_resp_time_lnd
  2  /

COLUMN1
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
16-MAY-12 01.15.51.000000 PM
16-MAY-12 01.15.55.000000 PM

2 rows selected.
