    Question

    In SQL*Loader (Oracle 8i), is it possible to load data from 2 data files into one database table. Check out this set up:

    DATA FILES:
    test1.txt
    col name datatype
    A char(1)
    C char(1)

    text2.txt
    col name datatype
    B char(1)
    D char(1)

    CONROL FILE:
    ...
    INFILE "C:\test1.txt"
    INFILE "C:\test2.txt"
    ...
    insert into table TEST_TABLE
    FIELDS TERMINATED BY ' '
    (A,
    B,
    C,
    D terminated by whitespace)


    Is this possible or am I just going about it the wrong way? Should I just load the data into their own tables in the DB, and then put them together using SQL*Plus?

    Thanks for your help!

    No, it is not possible to combine two logical records (from two different files) into one phisical record to be inserted into database with SQL*Loader.

    You'll have to use the other option (loding into two separate tables and then combine them).
