    ex.dat file

    009hello,cd,
    010world,im,
    012my,name is,
    col1 is char(5) where as in the ex.dat it is more than 5. correct that.

    Cool Remove the garbage

    Remove the "var" and the column lengths:

    Code:
    -- Your control file
    load data
    infile 'C:\ex.dat' 
    truncate into table exam
    fields terminated by ',' optionally enclosed by '"'
    (col1 char,col2 char)

    And you get this:
