I think this is one of Oracle FAQ.
Some of Oracle DB command line tools handle filename with space in it in a tad non-standard way :)
Just little differently from those like /usr/bin/*
The problem is space between the a and demo
Thats the reason sqloader it interprets as another parameter....
use backslash to avoid this...
Today, I found another less frequently used command behaves the same way.
'lcsscan' detects language and encoding used in a given file on local file system.
$ $ORACLE_HOME/bin/lcsscan file= /tmp/test/a\ b.txt // Fails [...] You can control how LCSSCAN runs by entering the LCSSCAN command followed by the required parameters. To specify parameters, you use keywords: Example: LCSSCAN RESULTS=2 END=1000 FORMAT=HTML FILE=index.html $ $ORACLE_HOME/bin/lcsscan file= \'/tmp/test/a b.txt\' // Works Language and Character Set File Scanner v2.1 (c) Copyright 2003, 2012 Oracle Corporation.
