This problem can occur on any platform.


You start SQL*Loader (as user SQLLOADS) to load data into a table located in another schema (A_SCHEMA). This raises the errors:

ORA-01536: space quota exceeded for tablespace 'A_TBS'
SQL*Loader-605: Non-data dependent ORACLE error occurred -- load discontinued

The user who started SQL*Loader (SQLLOADS) has granted the privilege UNLIMITED TABLESPACE and the mentioned tablespace A_TBS has plenty of free space.
