I have never done it in Oracle, only MS SQL Server, I would import or link the Excel file into Access, set up an ODBC connect in Access to the table in Oracle, if you do not have one then create one, and then use the Append function in Access to insert the rows from my linked or imported table. I do not see why the same could not be done with Oracle. Just guessing. I am new to Oracle and not a super techy either.

may not be best answer, but this tool works wonders.

O2XAGENT.EXE --src=db1 --dest=c:\from_mssql.xls --user=administrator --pswd=the_passsword --tab_file=c:\tabfile1.txt --xls_ver=1


intelligent converters

Access is a great intermediary for tasks like this. Another super easy way is if you have access to a SQL Server - set up a DTS package with the source being the Excel file and the destination being your Oracle db. If you're a purist and simply must, you could save the Excel data as .csv, then use the Oracle SQL Loader utility ;)

The best thing would be if the file format is .CSV

then u can use SQL* LOADER to load data into oracle.
