Default: The name of the control file, with an extension of .log.


The LOG parameter specifies a directory path, or file name, or both for the log file that SQL*Loader uses to store logging information about the loading process.

Syntax and Description


If you specify the LOG parameter, then you must supply a directory name, or a file name, or both.

If no directory name is specified, it defaults to the current directory.

If a directory name is specified without a file name, then the default log file name is used.


The following example creates a log file named emp1.log in the current directory. The extension .log is used even though it is not specified, because it is the default.
