Upload from what? What do you mean with "upload"?
Oracle version?

Btw, we all have these data/table. Smile

Use external table (search for this in this site).
Then you can use any SQL statement you want, for instance counting the number of rows in each department.

It would help if you (finally) decide to post your Oracle version. Because, not all versions support external tables, and I'm not sure you'll upgrade just because of this assignment.

So, another approach would be loading all records into one table and write a query against it in order to fetch only required records (those that have more than 5 records for a department) and insert them into the target table.
