there is a table  tmp(a varchar2(3),b varchar2(3),rmk varchar2(6))

the content of tmp.txt  is:  
a|a
b|b

the content of tmp.ctl  is:
LOAD DATA
        INFILE 'tmp.txt'
        INTO TABLE tmp append
        FIELDS TERMINATED BY '|'
        (sn,
         agent,
         rmk "to_char(sysdate,'yyyymm')")

Run "sqlldr ltj/intelL control=tmp log=log.txt " ,then show :

“SQL string for column : "to_char(sysdate,'yyyymm')"

Record 1: Rejected - Error on table TMP, column RMK.
Column not found before end of logical record (use TRAILING NULLCOLS)”

why??

Use trailing nullcols in your control file...

LOAD DATA
INFILE 'tmp.txt'
INTO TABLE tmp append
FIELDS TERMINATED BY '|'
trailing nullcols
(a,b,rmk "to_char(sysdate,'yyyymm')")

SQL loader is expecting data as a|a|a. If last column/columns is null you have to use trailing nullcols.
