what do you mean call the control file from a shell script ?

or you mean call sqlldr (with the control file as param) from a shell script ?

The shell script would be as simple as:

# start of script

sqlldr user/pwd@host control=$1

# end of script

and you can call this script from the prompt as

$<script name> <control file name>


OR are you looking for something else?

What i exactly want is that i have a sqloader process being called from a .bat file.
Now i want to know whether i can call this .bat file from an Oracle job.

My Oracle version is 9.2.0.7

Calling that batch file from an Oracle Job - is not going to be straight forward. You will have to write a Java Stored procedure to make that call.

An easier and equally performant alternative would be - Define an external table instead of the sqlloader, and define an oracle job to load from this external table.
