following is the code is which i have written inside .ctl file

OPTIONS (SKIP=1,ERRORS=999999)
load data
infile 'D:\FILEUPLOAD\NEW_Q4_DATA.csv'
append
into table TEMP_VCON_CDR_DTL
fields terminated by "\t" optionally enclosed by '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS (MSISDN_NO,CIRCLE,REC_TYPE,CALLING_NO,CALLED_NO,DATE_TIME,DURATION)


following is the sample data which i am trying to insert using sqlldr
918264068	GJ	GPRS	9182640683	 	1/18/2014 1:50:01 AM	4392.0000


there is a tab delimeter after 9182640683 and then space and after that one more tab delimeter.
but when i check data in table it shifts values of EVENT_DURATION in CALL_DATE_TIME column
it considers two tab spaces as one which is wrong .

the actual data that sqlldr inserts in table:-

MSISDN_NO  CIRCLE  REC_TYPE  CALLING_NO   CALLED_NO               DATE_TIME   DURATION
918264068   GJ	    GPRS     9182640683	 1/18/2014 1:50:01 AM	  4392.0000


but the desired output is
MSISDN_NO  CIRCLE  REC_TYPE  CALLING_NO   CALLED_NO   DATE_TIME             DURATION
918264068   GJ	    GPRS     9182640683	             1/18/2014 1:50:01 AM   4392.0000



Please tell how to solve this problem.

Thanks

Try X'09' instead of "\r".

That is not going to help anyway. Show us using copy paste what you tried. Nobody can fix something which cannot be seen.

Also give the precise DB and sqlloader version, it might be a bug in your version.

yeah both X'9' and X'09' are working but i had to remove
optionally enclosed by '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS
statements from the control file.
please tell me the reason why it was not working along with " optionally enclosed by '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS "

one more question , as i know we can use X'9'or X'09' etc for tab delimeter , do we have similiar things for comma delimeter also. ?

FIELDS TERMINATED BY "," 


You can read some useful stuff in our OraFAQ FAQ SQL*Loader

It is a known bug that double tabs without quotes are not recognized unless you remove the optionally enclosed by. I believe you can keep the trailing nullcols. The following is an example of a thread where I first encountered the issue a long time ago.

http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/26197/0/

Additional info, according to Laurent Schneider on December 14, 2012:

This is bug 21040, reported in 5.1.22 and closed Jun 7, 1989 as 92 Closed, Not a Bug

The workaround is documented in note 414394.1 :
Remove clause OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY from control file

@lalit that i know anyways thanks for the link , i said something similiar like X'9' , normally we use "\t","tab"or
" " for tab delimeter, and "," for comma delimeter.
but if i use
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ","
i will have to use
optionally enclosed by '"' TRAILING NULLCOLS
along with this, so i was asking for alternative , as we have for tab delimeter.
