What kind of a procedure? An Oracle stored procedure? Operating system's (batch) procedure? If so, which operating system do you use? Something different?

SQLLDR is an operating system utility; therefore, you might put its call into an operating system's batch file, and then call that file from a stored procedure using DBMS_SCHEDULER package.

However: you'd perhaps rather switch to external tables feature, that allows you access to a CSV file (you'd load by SQL*Loader) directly from (PL/)SQL. There's a drawback, though - the file must reside on a database server (while SQL*Loader works fine with files stored locally, on your computer).

If you could describe what you'd want to do, someone might suggest (virtually) the best approach for your requirement.
