It's not possible.

You will either have to create a database and load the data into the database ( which can not be done in an 'urgent' environment unless you know exactly what you are doing ) or access the excel file some other way, with Access maybe.

1/ its very urgent
Nothing is urgent in a forum

2/ You must have an Oracle database

What don't you understand in "You must have an Oracle database"?

Somebudy told me that u can reterive the this data which is in excel sheet through sqlplus of 10g(DS).

I believe that buddy of yours meant you could use the external tables feature (available from 9i onwards). A standard pathway is to save Excel file as a CSV (comma separated values) file and load it into an Oracle database using either SQL*Loader utility or make this file an external table.

However, as previously stated, Developer Suite (you installed) is simply not enough - you have a tool (SQL*Plus), but you don't have a database to connect to. Or, do you have it, but didn't tell us?

Just being curious - once you find a database and load data from Excel file into it, what do you plan to do with these records?
