SQL Developer Loader Export Without Path Name On INFILE

Hi.
I am using sql loader to deliver some files to my client. I LOVE that you can use sql developer's export feature to create the LDR and CTL files (type: loader in the export wizard). However, it embeds the file name like this

INFILE="C:\DEVTOP\PROJ1\TABLE1_TABLE_DATA.LDR"

in the control file. If I manually remove C:\DEVTOP\PROJ1\, they work great in any directory.
Since I have many tables though, I'd love to know if there is a way to have sql developer generate my CTL files without sticking the whole path in there like that...

If a parameter is absent from the control file, you should be able to specify it on the command line.  My preference would be to set an O/S variable, load it with the desired string, and reference the variable in the control file.

It's not absent, I WANT it to be absent. I want to avoid manual editing, not add more manual editing.

I understand.  Did you read through the solution example?  INFILE resolves to a variable that's defined outside of the job run.  

pseudocoded:

for fi in source1 source2; do
export INFILE_loc=$fi
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/sqlldr..... INFILE='INFILE_loc'
...
done
