Hello experts, I need to create a control file with some files data that already exists in a Linux directory.
Taking all files in:
/cots/oracle/TABLAS_HISTORICOS/VOLCADO_DATOS/TEST_SUR/DATOS_SUR_5MIN/

Open in new window

SUR_6TF4______I.SUR
SUR_6TF3______I.SUR
SUR_6TF2______I.SUR

Open in new window


I need to create:
control_5min_033.ctl

Open in new window

with text:
LOAD DATA
infile SUR_6TF4______I.SUR
infile SUR_6TF3______I.SUR
infile SUR_6TF2______I.SUR
INTO TABLE XAJTDB.temp_5MIN_033
Insert
fields terminated by "||"
OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
(UTCTIME Date "DD-MM-YYYY HH24:Mi:SS",
EPOCH Integer external,
valor_inst,
MS Integer,
TLQ Integer,
TAG Char,
PUNTO Integer external)

Open in new window

It is posible?

What method I must to use?

I need create automatically the control file, many times.

Thank you in advanced!

Regards

Try this.   Just remove the file names from the control file.  This way you don't have to keep recreating it.

Then create a loop and pass in the files from the command line.

LOAD DATA
INTO TABLE XAJTDB.temp_5MIN_033
Insert
fields terminated by "||"
OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
(UTCTIME Date "DD-MM-YYYY HH24:Mi:SS",
EPOCH Integer external,
valor_inst,
MS Integer,
TLQ Integer,
TAG Char,
PUNTO Integer external) 

Open in new window


shell script
#!/bin/bash

FOLDER=/cots/oracle/TABLAS_HISTORICOS/VOLCADO_DATOS/TEST_SUR/DATOS_SUR_5MIN

for filename in $FOLDER/*.SUR
do
 sqlldr username/password control=control_5min_033.ctl data=$filename
done

Open in new window
