Attached is my control file and .csv file. I did attach another .xls which is the copy of .csv file for matching the name of the fields with the columns.

I am using .csv thru sqlloader, I keep getting "invalid number" when the data is numeric..
This is happening for columns, BX(Expenses- name of the column) and BB(TRA - name of the column).

Also, I get error on column BF, saying actual length is 4, maximum length is 3. But I see only three characters in.csv file for the column BF(settle_ccy -name of the column). Also, you can see I have used TRIM in my control file for varchar.

This is very urgent issue, please help !

Quick response is appreciated.

$tradehome points to the right place ?

I used an external table definition csv_load (definition attached  (all columns varchar(255) except the one you mentioned) and a directory 'ext' i already had defined for

SQL> select expenses, settle_ccy, tra from csv_load

How may records are loaded, this is feedback from the sqlldr command.

Have a look at the discard (.dsc) file to see which records are not loaded.

I tried to basically use a shell script for reading this, here is my shell and then tried to convert .csv file from dos to unix format and then it worked.

Please find attached DDL for the table stg_citco_intraday_trade. The first column is a sequence number for which I created a sequence and also created a trigger (before insert) so that it gets first column loaded there for every insert statement. Am attaching those as well.

#!/bin/ksh -xve

date

echo   'Started sqlloader stg_citco_intraday_trade'

if ( test -e "$tradehome/ods/data/csv/test_0523.csv")
then
   dos2unix $tradehome/ods/data/csv/test_0523.csv $tradehome/ods/data/csv/test_0523.csv
   echo $odspass | sqlldr $odsuser control=$tradehome/ods/ctl/stg_citco_intraday_trade.ctl  log=$tradehome/ods/log/stg_citco_intraday_trade_sqlldr.log
   cat $tradehome/ods/log/stg_citco_intraday_trade_sqlldr.log

fi

echo  'Ended sqlloader stg_citco_intraday_trade'
date

I may have to change my shell to ftp .csv file. Could someone suggest how to do that ?

# this is how a shell ftp session looks on our unix-box
ftp -i -n << EOF
open servername
quote USER username
quote PASS password
binary
put filename1 filename2
bye
EOF

#within the ftp-session you can use the regular ftp-commands
