    I have the following problem:

    I need to import a multi-record type tab delimited file
    into a set of Oracle tables based on each record type.

    If anyone has done something similar or has any idea how
    do import this type of file I will appreciate the help.

    The tab delimited file looks like :

    101-1joesmith
    101-2New Jersey
    102-1PaulJones
    102-2New York

    101 is the employee number -1 and -2 are the record type indicators.

    Record type 1 records are loaded into table

    emp_names
    (emp_num varchar(10),
    fname varchar(20),
    lname varchar(20))

    Record type 2 records are loaded into table

    emp_state
    (emp_num varchar(10),
    state varchar(20),
    )


    Thanks

    Talking columns seperated by ...

    'X09'
    (or is it X'09'? I forget)
    that works for me when I have tab delimited


    If you cannot get the tab-delimited to load, sometimes I open the file (in word or textpad or whatever) and "replace" all the tabs with tildes (~) or something. That is easy to do as well.

    solution

    Thanks DBA's

    SQLLDR worked fine using the following syntax :
    LOAD DATA
    INFILE 'orderh.txt'
    REPLACE
    INTO TABLE order_rectype1
    WHEN rec_type = '1'
    (field1 terminated by x'09',
    :
    :

    INTO TABLE order_rectype2
    WHEN rec_type = '2'
    (field1 terminated by x'09',
    :
    :



    etc

    Thanks
