    Read from file

    Hi

    If i have a text file with columns like student id, register date seperated by comma, how do i import it into a table in oracle? Is there a limit on the size of the file? Does it work for excel file too?

    Thanks!

    you can use sql loader, utl_file, csv, odbc etc

    if is plain text sql loader would be the fastest way

    No, you will have to save Excel as csv for input to sql loader.

    It's in the Server Utilities manual in the Oracle doc, also on http://download-west.oracle.com/docs...6955/part2.htm
