    [SOLVED] Question about External Table Syntax

    Regarding the External Table example at: OTN,

    there is a block that includes:
    Code:
             records delimited by newline 
             badfile admin_bad_dir:'empxt%a_%p.bad' 
             logfile admin_log_dir:'empxt%a_%p.log'
    I can't seem to find the definition of %a and %p. Does anyone know what they mean?
