Sql-loader error, help!!!!

Recently I found the following error message in the sql-loader log file.
ora-704 , I can't find corresponding explainatino in oracle documentation. I use sql-loader 7.3 to load .dat file extracted from our ERP system. This error can't be monitored by pl/sql and quite dangerous . Please kindly help me to solve this problem.Many thanks!!

The ora-704 error message is pretty serious. It's a boot-strap kind of message that you usually get on db startup when something is seriously wrong. What version of db are you running? If it's pre-8.0 then you might check to see if the sys.bootstrap$ table was set to unlimited extents (one of those weird issue things). Although I wouldn't suggest modifying the sys schema's objects to set the extents to something other than unlimited, this might open some doors into something else.
If you're truly getting this:
ORA-00704: "bootstrap process failure"
Cause: Failure in processing bootstrap data - see accompanying
Action: Contact your customer support representative.
Then you really need to contact a CSR for technical help that is supported by Oracle itself.
Good luck

  • Help Needed regarding SQL Loader Error

    I am trying to insert some records into two tables using same control file.

    Please suggest me what I need to do.

    it appears that you are using this line code in your korn shell script. if you try to do a manual run on the unix command line do you still get the same error?
    also can you post a sample value for all the parameters you have.

  • Sql loader error

    I am using sql loader command line sqlldr to load 141306 records into my table. It ended with an error message --
    SQL*Loader-605: Non-data dependent ORACLE error occurred -- load discontinued.
    Checking for data load failures
    Checking Log data for clinic_biotox table data load
    90970 Rows successfully loaded.
    78 Rows not loaded due to data errors.
    And moreover (90970+78 = 91048) which is much less than 141306
    Any ideas as to what might have happened ?

    Have you checked the sqlldr log file (the name of which you should have supplied at the command line)? This sometimes provides additional information as to what occurred.
    I would also say that the reason why your record counts do not tally up like they should would be because the error occurred before sqlldr was able to complete the load.
    The last thing I can offer would be for you to check what your allowable error threshold is within your logfile. It could be that you exceeded the allowable number of bad records and as such caused the load to fail.
    Hope this helps...

    I was trying to load arabic data using sql*loader and the datafile is in .CSV format.But i am facing a error Value to large for a column while loading and some data are not loaded due to this error.My target database character set is..
    Characterset : AL32UTF8
    National Character set: AL16UTF16
    DB version:-10g release 2
    OS:-Cent OS 5.0/redhat linux 5.0
    I have specified the characterset AR8MSWIN1256/AR8ISO8859P6/AL32UTF8/UTF8 separately in the sql*loader control file,but getting the same error for all the cases.
    I have also created the table with CHAR semantics and have specified the "LENGTH SEMANTICS CHAR" in the sql*loader control file but again same error is coming.
    I have also changed the NLS_LANG setting.
    I am getting stunned that the data that i am goin to load using sql*loader, it is resided in the same database itself.But when i am generating a csv for those datas and trying to load using sql*loader to the same database and same table structure,i am getting this error value too large for a column.
    whats the probs basically???? whether the datafile is problemetic as i am generating the csv programmetically or is there any problem in my approach of loading unicode data.
    Please help...

    Here's what we know from what you've posted:
    1. You may be running on an unsupported operating system ... likely not the issue but who knows.
    2. You are using some patch level of 10gR2 of the Oracle database but we don't know which one.
    3. You've had some kind of error but we have no idea which error or the error message displayed with it.
    4. You are loading data into a table but we do not have any DDL so we do not know the data types.
    Perhaps you could provide a bit more information.
    Perhaps a lot more. <g>

  • SQL*Loader Error Field in data file exceeds maximum length", version 8.1.6

    Hi All,
    I am trying to load a data file into a database table using SQL loader. I
    received the data in an data file but I saved it as a pipe delimited
    When I run the SQL Loader command no records are loaded - looking at the log
    file I get the following error:
    Rejected - Error on table FARESDATA, column FANOTESIN.
    Then I tried with substr and doesnt seem to work for values greater than 4000 chars, it only works if the field value is below 4000 chars (say doing a substr for first 3000 chars).
    see the code--------
    INFILE 'p.dat'
    Fanotesin char(4000) "substr(:fanotesin,1,4000)"
    We get the error ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column when using substr for 4000 chars.
    Please help!

    I believe the problem here is that the ORACLE database regards anything > 4000chs as a CLOB (or LONG). 4000 is the maximum length of a varchar2 field in the database, although of course you can declare larger values in PL/SQL. (Since the incoming data is > 4000 chs it is regarded as a LONG and you cannot therefore use SUBSTR on it)
    I think that you must either truncate your data before loading or load into a table with the offending field as a CLOB (or LONG)
    and then use PL/SQL to recreate it in a table with a varchar2(4000) which is otherwise identical. (You can select from a LONG into a varchar2(32000) for example and then truncate before writing out to the new table).
