CSV (comma separated values) file can be easily saved from your Excel file. Then read SQL*Loader manual (won't take long, but you'll learn a lot!).

There's no "script" one could send to you because it depends on input data, target table(s) description etc. Though, feel free to search the board - there've been plenty of nice examples here.

LOAD DATA
INFILE 'C:\mohan\August\Aug13\

FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
TRAILING NULLCOLS
(

Column1,
Column2,
Column3,
Column4,

)


I ended up with the error .Below are the errors.

- rest of line ignored.

Thanks for you help.
