How can I load this file using sql loader
I created the ctl file like this

load data
badfile /u01/sf_laod.bad'
append
INTO TABLE TT
FIELDS TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
TRAILING NULLCOLS
(IGMSecurityID  "trim(:IGMSecurityID)",
-----
-----)

It ingnore all the records
saying  ORA-01008: not all variables bound

I think it is due to  (")  data  have in ,"Landmark VI CDO, Ltd." How can I solve this problem.
Reply ASAP

I have found issues with the optionally enclosed by part of SQL*Loader.  In my experience if there are multiple delimiters, it treats it as 1 column.

For example:

1,,2

is treated as

1,2

I would load the data into a temporary table without the optionally enclosed by, the strip off "s with a command like:

update <tab>
set <col> = replace(<col>, '"')
;

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Never have I seen SQL*Loader treat consecutive delimiters as ONE.

Only with the optionally enclosed by.  That is the ONLY time I have ever seen that.
