What?

What is Oracle "utility"

Pl/sql is a programming language. A DBA is a person. I guess neither "utility" (whatever that is) nor the scheduler can be part of a person.

I suggest you should prepare yourself to read the Documentation and the Forum Guide

Well, the CAN be part of database administration.

They can also be part of application development.

They should definitely know about SQL*Loader, since that knowledge is needed when you want to import flat files into the database, either through SQL*Loader itself or via external tables, which use the same basic syntax for control files.

Starting with V10 SQL Loader could be considered obsoleted,
because of External Table is a superior replacement which can be access via plain SQL

The information provided by you will definitely help me.

I disagree here.
SQL Loader has one big advantage over external tables, and that is (server) security.
For external tables, the database has to have access to the files to be loaded, which means that either a port needs to be open on the database server to copy/scp/whatever the file to the db-server, or there has to be a shared file(-system).

To use SQL Loader however, we only need the one port that is open anyway (tns, mostly 1521 or 1526)
