Load Data with SQL*Loader in Oracle
How To Load Data with SQL*Loader in Oracle?
Let's say you have a table defined as:
CREATE TABLE student (id NUMBER(5) PRIMARY KEY, first_name VARCHAR(80) NOT NULL, last_name VARCHAR(80) NOT NULL, birth_date DATE NOT NULL, social_number VARCHAR(80) UNIQUE NOT NULL);
There is an input data file stored at \oraclexe\text\student.txt with the following records:
1,Steven,King,17-JUN-77,515.123.4567 2,Neena,Kochhar,21-SEP-79,515.123.4568 3,Lex,De Haan,13-JAN-83,515.123.4569 4,Alexander,Hunold,03-JAN-80,590.423.4567 5,Bruce,Ernst,21-MAY-81,590.423.4568 6,David,Austin,25-JUN-87,590.423.4569 7,Valli,Pataballa,05-FEB-88,590.423.4560 8,Diana,Lorentz,07-FEB-89,590.423.5567 9,Nancy,Greenberg,17-AUG-84,515.124.4569 10,Daniel,Faviet,16-AUG-84,515.124.4169
You can create a control file at \oraclexe\test\student.ctl as:
LOAD DATA APPEND INTO TABLE STUDENT FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' (id, first_name, last_name, birth_date, social_number)
When you are ready to load data, you can run the SQL*Loader with the "sqlldr" command:
>cd \oraclexe\app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server\BIN >sqlldr userid=hr/fyicenter, control=\oraclexe\test\student.ctl, data=\oraclexe\test\student.txt, log=\oraclexe\test\student.log SQL*Loader: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Commit point reached - logical record count 10
To see details of the loading process, you should check the log file \oraclexe\test\student.log.
