hi 2 all,

sorry, but i do have another problem...(i'm a bloody newbie... ;-(( )

I have to import a data file (every hour) via external tables - and then insert into the internal table.

but there's another table where all information (file_id & filename & importtime) is.

table: Data_file
fil_id (pk),
file_name varchar(255),
importtime timestamp (date)

can you please help solving this problem...I googled for a while, I#m just googling for the last 2 weeks.....
