    sqlldr - look up on table to find column value


    I am loading table Emp using sqlldr. I need to populate the column Date_paid_key of table Emp by lookin up on another table dates. Sample data is as given below. How can I do it using sqlldr? I can load my csv in a temp table and then proceed. Any other suggestions?

    EmpId EmpName Salary Date_paid
    1 A 10 4/15/2009
    2 B 20 4/18/2009

    lookup Table dates
    Date Date_key
    4/15/2009 1001
    4/16/2009 1002
    4/17/2009 1003
    4/18/2009 1004

    Target table Emp
    EmpId EmpName Salary Date_paid_key
    1 A 10 1001
    2 B 20 1004

    No other suggestion, this is a two steps process: a) sqlload what you have, b) update as needed.
