    SQL*Loader with mixed ASCII and binary data

    I am attemting to load mixed ASCII and binary data using SQL*Loader.

    My table (as described in the .SQL file) uses a record type of BLOB for the orig_record field.

    My SQL*Loader control (.ctl) file uses positional descriptions and a RAW datatype for the orig_record BLOB. When run using the data in the data (.dat - here renamed to .bmp in order to satisfy website requirements) file, the data appears to be loaded, but only up to the first '0A' (carriage return). How can I load the whole record? I suspect that SQL*Loader always expects an ASCII data file.

    The data file will normally be of the order of hundreds of thousands of records per day, so a file for each BLOB is out of the question.

    I also nead to extract these fileds once loaded and create a file of records. I would rather not have to use PL/SQL and the DBMS_LOB package. Any suggestions?
