I'm getting an error loading an ORACLE table from a CSV file with SQL Loader. This is the file being imported (generated from SQL Server with PowerShell with export-csv).

1ABCDEFG15/11/2012 00:00John Smith15/11/2012 00:00TRUE

2abcdefg22/04/2013 00:00Jane Jones26/03/2013 00:00FALSE

 and this is the error. I've checked the "date culture" in Oracle and it's English. I've also tried various date formats but none seem to work. 
 Record 1: Rejected - Error on table TEST, column ADATE.
 ORA-01843: not a valid month

Very much appreciate any assistance.
