We are running Oracle E-business suite 126.96.36.199 on db 9i but when I execute sql*loader it gives me version 188.8.131.52.0. Is the key word FILLER available for me to use to skip unwanted columns in a comma delimited input file? I know FILLER became a key work in 9i - is that the db 9i? Why is my sql*loader so old and is that what's preventing me from using FILLER. I get SQL*Loader-350: Syntax error - Expecting "," or ")", found "FILLER".
