Q

Extracting file from specific table

I have a flat file that contains records like this:

01235983658838456838475834638YMNBV45793

I want to extract this file from a specific Oracle9i database table. Is there any way to do it only from Oracle? How? Can you offer an example?
You can use Oracle's SQL*Loader utility. Since you don't have any obvious delimiters, I can only assume that the data is fixed-width. In either case, SQL*Loader can load the data into any Oracle table. The Oracle docs not only give you detailed instructions, but also plenty of examples. You will want the Oracle Utilities Guide.
