ORACLE "SP2-0734 Unknown Command" ERROR

tim-m asked
Last Modified: 2011-08-18
Oracle runs fine, but when I try to run a script using an
"ORGANIZATION EXTERNAL" Clause I get an "SP2-0734 Unknown Command" ERROR. I found some documentation on the web and it said to check the PATH.

This is a copy of my PATH
"D:\oracle\ora90\bin;D:\oracle\ora90\Apache\Perl\5.00503\bin\mswin32-x86;C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.8\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\BINN"

Any suggestions?

Thank You!

How about showing full script what you tried?

Your script is for moving data from flat file to ORACLE?

And...  are you sure You created a DIRECTORY  for flat file?


create directory EQUIPMENT_DIR as 'c:\Inventory\Equipment\CBR';

create table CBR_EQUIPMENT(
ITEM                VARCHAR2(44),
