I have the below simple Oracle INSERT.

INSERT INTO MY.LOGFILE
(id,severity,category,logdate,appendername,message,extrainfo)
VALUES
(
"dee205e29ec34",
"FATAL",
"facade.uploader.model",
"2013-06-11 17:16:31",
"LOGDB",
NULL,
NULL
)

But I am getting this error: 

[Err] ORA-00984: column not allowed here

Can anyone help me with this?

You need to replace the double quotes with the single ones:

INSERT
INTO    MY.LOGFILE
        (id,severity,category,logdate,appendername,message,extrainfo)
VALUES  (
       'dee205e29ec34',
       'FATAL',
       'facade.uploader.model',
       '2013-06-11 17:16:31',
       'LOGDB',
       NULL,
       NULL
       )

In SQL, the double quotes are used to mark identifiers, not string constants.
