    Unanswered: Import Excel spreadsheet into oracle 9i


    As subject reads ... I want to import an excel sheet into oracle 9i. I am aware that I need to save the spreadsheet as .CSV but reading around I have seen sql*loader being used to do the import. Am I right in thinking 9i doesnt support this and uses external tables instead ? If this is correct then do I need privilages to create a directory on the oracle server when using external tables?

    Thanks in advance

    No, you are wrong - SQL*Loader is supported in 9i (and in 10g as well). Follow this link to read all about this Oracle utility.

    P.S. Search for "Managing External Tables" chapter on this page; you'll find a nice example of Creating an External Table and Loading Data there.
