How to import Excel spreadsheet data into an Oracle database (10g)?
In MS Excel, save the contents of the spreadsheet as a comma delimited file. Choose File->Save As. In the Save As Type pulldown menu, choose CSV (Comma Delimited). Now that you have the data in a vendor-neutral format, you can use SQL*Loader to load the data into an Oracle table. The Oracle Utilities Guide contains information on how to use SQL*Loader. Chapter 6 discusses SQL*Loader concepts. At the end of this chapter, the documentation discusses some case studies on loading data. Case Study 3 shows you how to load from a CSV file like the one you created above.
