SQLLoad (or other ways) to load large text fields

Post by ccyr6.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I've got a text file that looks something like below.  I can use sqlldr
to get it in, and could potentially embed characters to use the
continueif next (1) = '#' feature, but I really want to preserve the
line lengths and paragraph indents.  Long datatype will do that, but
haven't been able to figure it out using sqlldr. using 8.0.5 on NT.

also, embedding the "next" char(s) would be a chore.


field3 start
field3 end

item no
description zzzzzzzzzzzzz
zzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzz
  New paragraph of same descriptionzzzzzzzz
zzzzzzzzzz end of description

item no

      select seq_x.nextval into :new.<primary_key_field> from dual;
   end if;
