Hey,
I have a question about SQL* Loader, is there a difference between it and inserting statements with an SQL script? When I would use each one.

Thanks,
Susu

INSERT can't insert file just values in statement.
INSERT with values can't use DIRECT PATH.
INSERT with values can't use PARALLEL.
And so on.

Michel

Thanks for replying me.
So is there a situation I need to use one way over the other way?

If you load a file, use SQL*Loader.
I don't understand the question.
In the end, you have no choice.
Either you have a file (like a CSV one) either you have statements. You use what you have.
