    I assume you are talking about sqlloader.

    Please copy/paste your code, control file and log.

    SQloadr

    here is my code where i face problem

    LOAD DATA
    INFILE *
    APPEND INTO TABLE SIEBEL.STAGING_CONTRACT
    FIELDS TERMINATED BY '|' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS
    (
    ASSET_NUM ,
    PRODUCT_NAME ,
    STATUS ,
    BILL_TO ,
    SOLD_TO ,
    FULFILL_TO ,
    ORIGINAL_ORDER ,
    MODIFY_ORDER ,
    CANCEL_ORDER ,
    EFFECT_DATE ,
    EXPIRE_DATE ,
    NET_PRICE

    )


    BEGINDATA
    R-1|"Agent Bronze XL"|"Inactive"|1000|1000|1000|R-1|||01-Jul-96 18:25:00:000|01-Aug-98 18:25:00:000|99.00

    so this 'EFFECT_DATE AND EXPIRE_DA* BOTH are not loading values to my Staging Table...
    Bcoz of this SQLLoadr is not working...
    My table Representation is :-
    CREATE TABLE SIEBEL.STAGING_CONTRACT
    (ASSET_NUM VARCHAR2(100),
    PRODUCT_NAME VARCHAR2(100),
    STATUS VARCHAR2(30),
    BILL_TO VARCHAR2(50),
    SOLD_TO VARCHAR2(50),
    FULFILL_TO VARCHAR2(50),
    ORIGINAL_ORDER VARCHAR2(30),
    MODIFY_ORDER VARCHAR2(30),
    CANCEL_ORDER VARCHAR2(30),
    EFFECT_DATE SYSTIMESTAMP),
    EXPIRE_DATE SYSTIMESTAMP,
    NET_PRICE VARCHAR2(22)
    )

    Lets be sure your issue is related to the systimestamp columns.

    1- Please try to load your data taking out your systimestamp values, just load nothing (nulls) in there.

    2- If it works then we know for sure the problem is systimestamp related and consequently I would say formatting related. In this case please start by doing a "select systimestamp from dual;" and check what's the expected systimestamp format.

    In my case I can see "03/10/2008 2:34:15.881 PM"

    I tried the step given by u.

    I emptied the column effect_date and the other date col. .So both the columns were null.
    Then I executed the CTL It sucessfully loaded the specific record into the
    staging table.
    Now plz tel me wat next shud I follow?

    Good, now you are certain the problem is caused by these offending dates.

    Would you mind in loading a single row with effect_date = '11-MAR-08 03.24.52.312664000 AM -07:00'... meaning, the format your database appears to be expecting?
