Hi everyone,

When I face any difficulties in orcale every time I find solution from this forum. May God bless you.

I want to input data from Excel to my Sql. I am using Data Load for this but I think there may be an alternate/Easy way to input with Sql command. here is my table.


SQL> desc ITEM_MASTER;
 Name                            Null?    Type
 ------------------------------- -------- ----
 ITEM_CODE                                VARCHAR2(50)
 ITEM_NAME                                VARCHAR2(500)
 MASTER_CODE                              VARCHAR2(50)
 ITEM_MASTER                              VARCHAR2(100)
 GROUP_CODE                               VARCHAR2(50)
 ITEM_GROUP                               VARCHAR2(100)
 ACC_NAME                                 VARCHAR2(100)
 TYPE_CODE                                VARCHAR2(10)
 TYPE_DESC                                VARCHAR2(150)
 UNDER_CODE                               VARCHAR2(10)
 UNDER_DESC                               VARCHAR2(150)
 APP_CODE                                 VARCHAR2(10)
 APP_DESC                                 VARCHAR2(150)

I am attached my txt file.

Sorry in advance If I do any fault against COC.

If you are starting with a text file, 3 options exist.
1) SQL*Loader
2) EXTERNAL TABLE
3) UTL_FILE

Alternatively it is possible to issue SQL directly from Excel itself against Oracle database.

Which metric measures "Easy"?
IMO, easy is the one you know & can produce desired results.

Post result of
select * from v$version;

Post CREATE TABLE statement.

Before, Please read How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.
