Uploading an Excel file into the database

I have a monthly report generated by a system in an Excel file. I want to create an interface so that every month, I would be able to upload the file in Excel format into an Oracle database (using jdbc) according to the column name. Please assist me on how to do this. Thanks in advance.

If you can have the Excel (.xls) file saved as some text format such as .txt or .csv, you can easily read the contents of the file and load it into Oracle. Tom Kyte answered a similar question on how to build an Excel file and included a lengthy script. While that script builds an Excel file, I think a few modications could easily do the process in reverse. Take a look at the following link and see if you can't get enough to get you started.
