I'm not sure we can do this at a sql*loader level.  Can you add a 'not null' constraint on the table in question?  This should cause the rows to be rejected but only do this if other apps might also insert nulls.

I'll see if I can find a way to cause sql*loader to do this.

Learned something new today.  There is a pretty simple way.

use a WHEN clause
LOAD DATA 
INFILE          *
APPEND
INTO TABLE tab1
WHEN col1 <> ''
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
(
  col1,
  col2
)
begindata
a,b
a,
