Symptoms

The following symptoms are attributed to this issue :-

1) SQLLDR is being used to load a datafile whose contents are not considered to contain invalid records.

2) Not all records get loaded and in the logs we see messages similar to :-

SQL*Loader-510: Physical record in data file ([xx].[xx].[xx].dat) is longer than the maximum(1048576)
SQL*Loader-2026: the load was aborted because SQL Loader cannot continue.
Specify SKIP=xx when continuing the load.
