    SQL Loader limitation to varchar or char ?

    Hello

    We are working on Oracle 9i database.
    We have to load lots of records from an external file and one of the field contains a number of characters > 10000 .
    the target table contains a long field to receive this data.

    i have tried to load this records but when the number of char exceeded 4821 chars no data are visible throw a select query (with Toad Developper)

    here is a sample of my CTL file
    Code:
    Load DATA
    INFILE "/export/home/crm2adm/scripts/head.tempLIGHT3"
    REPLACE INTO TABLE SW_OPPORTUNITY_LONG_WORK
    fields terminated by "" 
    -- optionally enclosed by "'"
    TRAILING NULLCOLS
    (
    SWCUSTOMERID
    ,SWREASONCLOSED CHAR(10005) NULLIF SWREASONCLOSED=BLANKS
    Description of my table
    Code:
    CREATE TABLE CRMADM.SW_OPPORTUNITY_LONG_WORK
    (
      SWCUSTOMERID    VARCHAR2(10 BYTE)             NOT NULL,
      SWREASONCLOSED  LONG
    )
    Can someone can help us ?
    thanks a lot.

    Cool Is it TOAD or what?

    Are you sure it's SQL*Loader and not TOAD?
    Did you get any errors in the SQL*Loader log file?
