    hi experts, I have a question regarding the sqlldr.exe. I don't understand why the sqlldr.exe doesn't exit even after it finishes loading data to the database. Is there anything wrong with my control file or because of something else? Please help! I have been struggling with this for few days.
    Here is my files for the sqlldr. can anyone tell me what the problem is? thanks.


    the command file:
    ---------------------

    sqlldr control=C:\codes\bcp\oracle\testload02.ctl, log=testload.log, bad=testload.bad, data=C:\codes\bcp\oracle\testdata.csv, userid=system/manager@RESEARCH



    the control file.
    -----------------

    LOAD DATA
    INFILE 'testdata.csv'
    REPLACE
    INTO TABLE testtable
    (
    loan_num INTEGER EXTERNAL TERMINATED BY ',',
    none FILLER DECIMAL EXTERNAL TERMINATED BY ',',
    cur_bal DECIMAL EXTERNAL TERMINATED BY ',',
    interest DECIMAL EXTERNAL TERMINATED BY '\n'
    )


    the datafile:
    --------------

    1, 7.6, 23232.24, 9.6
    2, 8.3, 34353.53, 8.3
    3, 6.7, 55353.53, 8.6
    4, 9.4, 63472.53, 9.8
    5, 8.2, 44443.53, 8.1



    the log file, "testload.log":

    What do you mean by it doesn't exists. Its been given a task of loading a file to a table with respective parameter files. When its done it will come out of load mode.

    You have to invoke it again if you want to load another table.

    If you want to load multiple tables, you have to include 'em in the script.

    It doesn't exit because I had to type 'ctrl-C' to terminate the execution. Here is a screen capture of my command prompt.

    -----------------------------------------
    C:\Inetpub\ftproot>testload

    C:\Inetpub\ftproot>sqlldr control=C:\codes\bcp\oracle\testload02.ctl, log=testload.log, bad=testload
    .bad, data=C:\codes\bcp\oracle\testdata.csv, userid=system/manager@RESEARCH

    Sometimes these executables doesn't work with server memory problems also. Last week we had the same problem with svrmgr/sqlplus executables. It will come out after 3-5 min
    you type in exit. Again its resolved on its own after 24 hours. Its strange. Noone did anything.

    If you wanna test this, use your load from somewhere else using connect string.

    Call sqlldr from sql script. Connect to sqlplus using another box executables and call that sql script.

    Of course ! Exit is needed if you are calling sqlldr from another script and not interactively.

    thg,

    Maintain one thread only specific to your problem. It helps others too focus on one thread than keep looking back and forth between threads, if they have the kinda problem.

    I had the same problem and confused just before, I was not sure what thread I participated in.

    Thsnks everyone!

    I will maintain only one thread per topic.

    About the sqlldr.exe exitting problem, I found out that the sqlldr.exe exits only when it is executed on the same machine as the oracle database server.

    I am connecting to the database from aclient machine, the client machine also has the oracle client edition installed. so when I call the sqlldr.exe, it uses the client copy. I have test it many times, it doesn't work on the client machine doesn't matter whether I put 'EXIT' at the end of the sqlldr script or not.


    To make my question clear, I will explain what I am doing below. :

    There are 3 machines in this scenario:

    1) client machine
    2) web server machine
    3) database server

    My project only has two parts,

    1) a .csv data file is uploaded to the web server machine from the client machine
    2) invoke the sql loader to load data from the .csv file to the database.


    My question is:

    Can I invoke the sqlldr.exe on the database server machine to load the data file from a different machine(the web server machine in this case, you know, not all client machines have oracle install. )? How?



    Thanks.

    thg.
