Hi,
I have a .csv file with 40 million records. I need to load this file into oracle table. But I canot use sql loader to do this ,because I don't have access to unix. Can I load this file using some tool like Toad or Pl/sql developer? How can i do it faster?

>>because I don't have access to unix
You can use sqlldr from any available client in any compatible OS.
Using sqlldr direct load. Make yourlife a little easier.
Else, look into UTL_FILE/external tables (both will need access to the server, if the server is in UNIX??).
Else use Java methods to read the file line-by-line...trouble.

No.
Run it from your command line.

Here is a simple example on how to load CSV file into a table using Scriptella, a Java-based open source ETL Tool:

Responding to a post that is almost ONE month old might be a waste of electrons & finger motions.

I see similar questions repeating in different forums from time to time, so I've put a link to Scriptella example to help other people looking for typical ETL solutions. It's frustrating when you google for something and find a question without different ways to achieve the goal.
P.S. I've forgotten to mention that Scriptella has no limitation on the number of CSV records being processed, provides JMX-based monitoring in real time and can be easily executed from a command line, Ant or even directly from a Java code.
