    Unanswered: sql loader control files

    I have 2 control files taking records from 2 unrelated/different files into 2 seperate tables. Is it possible to create 1 big control file where the first file would load into the first table, a second file into a second table etc? At the moment the first file is loading into both the first and second tables. If this is possible could you post the relevent syntax

    many thanks

    kerrie, Pretty sure that sql loader will only accept one input. It will, however, handle multiple outputs, i.e., save to multiple tables.

    The sql loader docs ( might show different, but I'm almost 100% sure for your situation, you'll have to stick with the two control files.

    Hope this helps.

    Correct ... 1 input / controlfile ... should be the way to go ... gives you better control of the data ... Can go into multiple tables ....

    if on unix/linux you could join the files with 'tee'

    cat file1 | tee -a file2

    then sqlload file2 to your two tables.
