      Hi Sudheer,

      Loading flat file is the first step in DI learning process and there are plenty of videos and  docs in public domain. Also what you have shown is not comprehensive. There are lot of features you can implement while loading. What if it is a fixed width file? How would you add a file name column while loading? What will you do if it is a pipe delimited file? How will you catch error during conversion? How would you capture a variable in the file name? and so on.

      My point is that the post should be informative and deliver some value to readers. It doesn't make any sense to use the forum to load "some thing", which is very fundamental and easily accessible.
