I was wondering if you know of a script that creates a flat file, 'csv file', from an Oracle database (maybe even specifying a table).
Sometimes, it is best to use all available resources. So in that vain, I will redirect you to one of the Oracle community's best resources...Tom Kyte. This Oracle guru has his own Web site called AskTom (http://asktom.oracle.com). He has answered this very question for others. For your particular problem, please follow this link: http://asktom.oracle.com/pls/ask/f?p=4950:8:983199::NO::F4950_P8_DISPLAYID,F4950_P8_CRITERIA:1992907061984,%7Bcsv%7D
