RE: sql loader

I saw several examples that very same way but say I was using a file that did:

load data

infile '/home/oracle/dumpdir/lims.dat'

append

into table hisuser.his_lims_iface

fields terminated by "|"

optionally enclosed by '"'

(

mrn,

lname,

fname,

midi,

marital_status,

bd "to_date(:bd,'MM/DD/YYYY')",

sex,

ssn,

no_ssn_reason,

hispanic,

white,

black,

indian_alaska,

asian,

hawaiian,

other_race,

other_race_exp,

death_date "to_date(:death_date, 'MM/DD/YYYY')",

mail_address,

city,

state,

zipcode,

country_code,

phone,

doctor_number

)

How would I add the sysdate column to that?

Brian,
Yes, you are right.

Example:
create table test(col1 number, col2 date);

cat test.dat
1
2
3
4
5

cat test.ctl
load data
infile 'test.dat'
badfile 'test.bad'
discardfile 'test.dsc'

into table TEST
insert
fields terminated by ','
(COL1,
COL2 SYSDATE)

Ok, I've gone completely brain-dead.

I need to add a date column to my sqlload control file,  I just use sysdate 
correct?  If it's not part of my input file that's ok right?
As long as I have a column named for it on the table I'm loading?
