    sqlloader

    Hi Friends,

    Can you help me please with some dos programming in win98 using
    sqlloader?

    I have sales files with date attached to it in my sales folder.
    The file names look like this.

    sales03012003.dat

    The file content format (columns) are
    store_no, total_items_sold,total_sales_amnt

    001, 200, 1200.00
    002, 250, 1500.00
    .
    .
    .

    separated by comma, corresponding to my daily_sales_table

    store_no, total_items_sold, total_total_amnt, sales_date.

    001 200 1200.00 03012003
    002 250 1500.00 03012003

    The input data does not contain sales_date, but it is to be taken
    from the date attached to the file name. In unix I can capture the
    date using the "cut" command and store it in a variable. But in
    windows I do not know how.

    Can you share me your knowledge in windows batch programming please?, on how to handle this problem. Or can you give me site where I could
    learn batch programming in windows.

    Thank you all in advance for your support.

    Hi

    You can say date /T

    You can also download and install cygwin..which allows you to run all unix commands on windows ;-)

    You can also look here

    Hrishy:
    if i am not wrong he wanted the date in the file & not necessarly it should be equal to current system date.

    and mor over system date on dos gives u "DAY Date" which again needs some code to get only date part.

    You can also download and install cygwin..which allows you to run all unix commands on windows ;-)
    this is Kewl....
    where can we get it?

    is it free?

    Hi

    Abhay yes it is free..you can go to http://www.cygwin.com/ for downloading..open source just like linux..if you want the commercial which is slightly better then you can download the MKS toolkit
    www.mks.com

    well i assumed he wanted the current date..i should have asked :-)

    regards
