Symptoms

An External table defined for XML data is failing when a comma character is in the data

Defining an EXTERNAL table of type ORACLE_LOADER with no TERMINATED BY clause defined defaults to "Terminated by ","". This causes an XML parsing failure and an unexpected end-of-file error. The data will contain commas in the text.
