You can edit the control file of the sqlloader by the following:

INFILE <data_file_path_and_name>
INTO TABLE <table_name> (
<column_name> POSITION(<integer>:<integer>) <data_type>,
<column_name> POSITION(<integer>:<integer>) <data_type>,
<column_name> POSITION(<integer>:<integer>) <data_type>)

   INFILE /tmp/load_data.dat
     (col1 POSITION(1:5) ,
      col2 POSITION(6:9) , 
      col3 POSITION(10:13))
