Import LOB Data

OraCmd can import LOB (BLOB, CLOB) data.

A Short Example

This section contains a short example showing how OraCmd import LOB (BLOB, CLOB) data.

The Table

We used the following SQL statement to create the table:

	create table T_FILE1
	  ID          NUMBER not null,
	  constraint PK_T_FILE primary key (ID)

We need import the BLOB data in "FILEDATA" field.

See data files:


	2008-07-30  20:21    <DIR>          .
	2008-07-30  20:21    <DIR>          ..
	2008-07-30  20:21             6,518 1.dat
	2008-07-30  20:21         5,571,204 2.dat

	2008-07-30  20:21            36,304 8.dat
	2008-07-30  20:21            45,104 9.dat

OraCmd commmand

	importlob table=t_file1 lobfield=filedata namefield=id fileext=dat 
	folder="E:\temp\lob" importtype=insert;
Oracle import lob command

Or a batch file(replace the userid with your own database user info. The lines wrap in this page, but in the file is 1 line):

	"C:\Program files\OraCmd\OraCmd" userid=hr/hr@localhost:1521:xe 
	task=importlob table=t_file1 lobfield=filedata namefield=id fileext=dat 
	folder="E:\temp\lob" importtype=insert 
	log="E:\temp\importlob.log" quit=y
