TRAILING NULLCOLS tells SQL*Loader to treat any relatively positioned columns that are not present in the record as null columns.

For example, if the following data

10 Accounting

is read with the following control file

INTO TABLE dept
      TRAILING NULLCOLS    
( deptno CHAR TERMINATED BY " ",
  dname  CHAR TERMINATED BY WHITESPACE,
  loc    CHAR TERMINATED BY WHITESPACE
)

and the record ends after DNAME. The remaining LOC field is set to null. Without the TRAILING NULLCOLS clause, an error would be generated due to missing data.
