I want to know how to insert a file into a table in Oracle 9i.

If you want to store the entire file in a database table, then you'll want to create a column in that table using the Binary Large Object (BLOB) datatype. The BLOB datatype can store JPG images, MS Word documents, WAV files or any other type of binary data like a file. The Oracle 9i Application Developers Guide -- Large Objects (LOBs) document contains information on LOBs. Included in this document are samples for different application development platforms.
