i pull data from sybase using BCP and then build a pipe delimited data file.

I see 2 of the fields are above varchar2(4000).

I need to use sql loader to load the data file to my oracle table.

How to handle the data above 4000 bytes.?

You should probably use CLOB, there is no "long varchar" as in Sybase, but CLOB works just fine.

CREATE TABLE T (
  ID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY,
  COL1 CLOB
);


Then use the file below. It has inline data, not external file data. To use your data file, you comment out:

infile *

and uncomment:

infile 'dataload.dat'

-- sample sql loader for clob
-- t.ctl
-- run: sqlldr username/password control=t.ctl
 
load data
--infile 'dataload.dat'
infile *
append into table t
fields terminated by '|' optionally enclosed by '"'
(
id      INTEGER EXTERNAL,
col1    CHAR
)
begindata
1|sample data clob ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
2|"sample data clob 2 ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ"
