External table in Oracle 10g

Hi I used the following to load data.
CREATE TABLE DATA_LOAD_CTR
(
  fields list)
ORGANIZATION EXTERNAL
  (  TYPE ORACLE_LOADER
     DEFAULT DIRECTORY LSHR_LOAD_DIR
     ACCESS PARAMETERS
       ( RECORDS DELIMITED BY NEWLINE
         FIELDS TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY "'"
                MISSING FIELD VALUES ARE NULL
        )
     LOCATION (LSHR_LOAD_DIR:'data_load.txt')
  )
REJECT LIMIT UNLIMITED
NOPARALLEL
NOMONITORING;
The above script works fine in development database and inserts about 14000 record. But the same inserts only one record in the staging database. It does not show any error. Why would it insert only one record from the flat file. Have I to mention table space here? If so how can I do that for this table.
Thanks.

you might try adding the discard, bad and logfile parameters:

BADFILE 'ulcase1.bad'
DISCARDFILE 'ulcase1.dis'
LOGFILE 'ulcase1.log'


hopefully one of those files will tell you why.

yes it says 'error procesiing start_date' not a valid month. The format in the input flat file is 'mm/dd/yyyy'. Do I have to make it same in table too? If so, how?

You'll need to add the date format and specify each of the fields.

I just resolved it by providing the date_mask for the dates

Have to disagree with the recommendation.  Adding the date mask is what my last post suggested and I believe it was my first post that uncovered the error.

Hi slightwv:
I'm not trying to be mean. It could be hard to believe, but I applied the format mask before I read your solution. However, if you insist, then you may take the points.

Don't I even get credit for giving you the solution to locate the error in the first place?

vianiAuthor Commented:
Your very first post was about adding the files bad, discard, etc. When I mentioned to you that the error is 'error procesiing start_date", I started applying the date mask. In the mean time you told me the same solution so, I think that we could split the points.

I have no problem with the askers recommendation of reducing points.
