Q

Converting text data to an Oracle table without Oracle's SQL*Loader utility

Oracle expert Brian Peasland explains when to use SQL Developer.

How can I convert data in a text file to a table in Oracle 10g and vice versa? I do not want to use SQL loader facility.
Oracle's SQL*Loader utility is the tool for converting text data to an Oracle table. I'm not sure why you do not want to use this utility. But if you want an alternative, go to Technet and download a copy of SQL Developer. This GUI based tool will let you export and import to/from text files.
