How do I load a PDF file into an Oracle table using SQL*Loader?
You will first want to create a table with a BLOB column. You will then be able to store the entire contents of the PDF file in that table's column. You can use SQL*Loader to load these PDF files.

The Oracle documentation contains the instructions you seek. You can find the specific document to load into LOBs with SQL*Loader at the following URL:
