If you need help regarding any particular issue with the sql loader, then please be specific.

From the question, all i can say is run the sqlloader with the control file/data file by specifying them in the options.

log file will be there in the directory from where you are running the command "sqlldr username/password@myserver control=C:\upload.ctl "

sqlldr is an OS command not a sqlplus command.  You run it from the command prompt.

If the data file is not specified in the control file, you'll have to tell sqlldr via parameter/option:

sqlldr username/password@myserver control=upload.ctl data=data.txt
