You can create an external table based on the CSV file and view the data directly in your Oracle database. However,...
you should know what the datatype of these 30 fields are and the maximum lengths of these fields in the CSV file and define the table accordingly.
Secondly a database directory needs to be defined that is map to an operating system path where the CSV file will be resident. In my example I have the path setup as /home/fahmia/PLSQL/examples and have it mapped to A_DEFINED_DIRECTORY.
SELECT * FROM ALL_DIRECTORIES will provide you with that information. Please note: grant read, write on this directory must be executed to the schema where the predefined_table is going to be created.
create table predefined_table (field1 varchar2(provide lenght) (or number)), ... field30 varchar2(provide lenght) (or number))) organization external ( type oracle_loader default directory A_DEFINED_DIRECTORY access parameters ( records delimited by newline badfile /home/fahmia/PLSQL/examples/test.bad' discardfile '/home/fahmia/PLSQL/examples/test.dis' logfile '/home/fahmia/PLSQL/examples/test.log' fields terminated by "," ( field1 varchar2(provide lenght) (or number)), ... field30 varchar2(provide lenght) (or number)) ) ) location ('/home/fahmia/PLSQL/examples/test.csv') ) reject limit unlimited
