EDB*Loader is a high-performance bulk data loader that provides an interface compatible with Oracle databases for Advanced Server. The EDB*Loader command line utility loads data from an input source, typically a file, into one or more tables using a subset of the parameters offered by Oracle SQL*Loader.
• Note: The following are important version compatibility restrictions between the EDB*Loader client and the database server.
• Invoking EDB*Loader is done using a client program called edbldr, which is used to pass parameters and directive information to the database server. It is strongly recommended that the 9.6 EDB*Loader client (that is, the edbldr program supplied with Advanced Server 9.6) be used to load data only into version 9.6 of the database server. In general, the EDB*Loader client and database server should be the same version.
