I've a script where i want to pass a date as parameter, can i do that using SQL Loader? and How?!

RE: SQL Loader

Instead of passing a date as a parameter I would "massage" the input file based upon the date when I create the data file.


RE: SQL Loader


RE: SQL Loader

<smile> perhaps "process" would be a better word - with a language such as perl

RE: SQL Loader

Well, i'm going to try to explain better...
I've a file that has a script which loads the data from the file to a table, one of the fields from my table must be updated with a certain date passed as parameter, this script is processed by SQL LOADER . Can i pass a parameter into this script?!

RE: SQL Loader

I don't know of a way to pass a parameter like that to SQLLDR.

It should be fairly easy to write a perl script that work go though your data file and update the field you need changing. Give me a few lines of your data file, tell me which field needs changing and I'll write you a pl that should do the job.


RE: SQL Loader

I don't have Perl installed, and it must be using SQLLDR...
thanks anyway...:)

RE: SQL Loader

Yes you can by adding it as a constant applying the format in which you want the date to be put as according to your table structure
