While editing the control file, I entered a tab
between the quotes after 'terminated by' and
that worked for me.

Hope this helps.

One of these should work

FIELDS TERMINATED BY WHITESPACE


FIELDS TERMINATED BY '    '
where the space between the quotes is a Tab

Good luck

Hope this helps!!

LOAD DATA
INFILE 'files.txt'
INTO TABLE files
INSERT
FIELDS TERMINATED BY X'09' TRAILING NULLCOLS
(ID_FILE,
NATION,
PATENT,
TITLE,
HKEY)

Another Eg:

LOAD DATA

   INFILE 'FILENAME.TXT'

   INTO TABLE t1

   FIELDS DELIMITED BY x'09'

   TRAILING NULLCOLS

     ( column 1....

     )

Since "chr(09)" works to insert a tab character, it may work in SQL*Loader as well (but I haven't tried it) like this:
FIELDS TERMINATED BY chr(09)

Also add after each column

(column_name1   datatype TERMINATED BY X'09',
 column_name2   datatype TERMINATED BY X'09')

Thank you all for your responses. Almost all your suggestions are working. I can use space, tab, or X'09'. But since myerpz is the first one who gave the correct answer, I am giving the points to him/her.
