I need help with using SQL*Loader. I need to populate a flat file into an oracle table. Unfortunately, the file contains foreign keys to tables already loaded in the database. How can I do a lookup of these foreign keys and populate the keysalong with the data in the flat file into a new table.

I hope someone can help me out here.

Thanks in advance.

I have the same situation. I couldn't find any SQL*Loader options to perform this so I just created a PL/SQL script and used the UTL_FILE package. Before I did this I played around a little with using a BEFORE INSERT trigger but decided to use the procedure instead.
