Loading a CSV file into APEX application

Hello,
I have a big (1 MB) CSV file that cannot be pumped in via the web interface. I have read in this forum that I need to use sqlldr utility.
Where can I specify in the .ctl file the FORMAT. I need to fill this field in the web GUI with "99.99" because without this I am getting an exception: INVALID NUMBER FORMAT.
Please help, thank you.

for sql*loader demo and example scripts - http://psoug.org/reference/sqlloader.html
but you may prefer to use utl_file pl/sql supplied package for this need if you are familiar with pl/sql development - http://psoug.org/reference/utl_file.html
best regards.

    Data Workshop has a feature to load a CSV file and create a table based on it, similarly i want to create it in my application.
    i have gone through the forum http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=334988&start=60&tstart=0
    but could not download all the files(application , HTMLDB_TOOLS package and the PAGE_SENTRY function) couldnt find the PAGE_SENTRY function.
    AND when i open this link http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=27746

    hi jari,
    I'm using the HTMDB_TOOLS to parse my csv files,It works well for creating a report, but if i want to create a new table and upload the data giving error *"missing right parenthesis"*
    I've been looking through the package body and i think there is some problem in the code,

  • Loading a CSV file into a table

    HTML DB Data Workshop has a feature to load a CSV file and create a table based on it.
    I use a simplified version of this feature in my applications.
    See a quick demo at
    http://htmldb.oracle.com/pls/otn/f?p=38131:1
    Create a small csv file like
    col1,col2,col3
    varchar2(10),number,"number(10,2)"
    cat,2,3.2
    dog,99,10.4
    The first line in the file are column names
    Second line are their datatypes.
    Save the file as c:\test.csv
    Click the Browse button, search for this file.
    Click the Submit button to upload and parse the file.
    You can browse the file contents.
    If you like what you see, type in a table name and click the Create Table button to create a table.
    Let me know if anyone is interested and I can post the code.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi everyone!
    The following are the steps to load a excell sheet to oracle table.i tried to be as simple as possible.
    thanks
    Step # 1
    Prapare a data file (excel sheet) that would be uploaded to oracle table.
    "Save As" a excel sheet to ".csv" (comma seperated values) format.
    Then save as to " .dat " file.
    e.g datafile.bat
    1,Category Wise Consumption Summary,Expected Receipts Report
    2,Category Wise Receipts Summary,Forecast Detail Report
    3,Current Stock List Category Wise,Forecast rule listing
    4,Daily Production Report,Freight carrier listing
    5,Daily Transactions Report,Inventory Value Report
    Step # 2
    Prapare a control file that define the data file to be loaded ,columns seperation value,name and type of the table columns to which data is to be loaded.The control file extension should be " .ctl " !
    e.g i want to load the data into tasks table ,from the datafile.dat file and having controlfile.ctl control file.
    SQL> desc tasks;
    Name Null? Type
    TASK_ID NOT NULL NUMBER(14)
    TASK_NAME VARCHAR2(120)
    TASK_CODE VARCHAR2(120)
    : controlfile.ctl
    LOAD DATA
    INFILE 'e:\datafile.dat'
    INTO TABLE tasks
    FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
    (TASK_ID INTEGER EXTERNAL,
    TASK_NAME CHAR,
    TASK_CODE CHAR)
    The above is the structure for a control file.
    Step # 3
    the final step is to give the sqlldr command to execute the process.
    sqlldr userid=scott/[email protected] control=e:\controlfile.ctl log=e:\logfile.log

  • Loading multiple .csv files into a table using SSIS

    Hi,
    I have a requirement where I have 200+ csv files to be loaded into Netezza table using SSIS.
    Issue I am facing is all columns have different number of columns, for ex, file 1 has columns A,B,C and file 2 has columns C,D,E. My target table has all columns from A to E in it. 
    But, when I am using for each loop container, only the file for which I have specified filepath+filename in loop variable, that is getting loaded. Rest all files, no data is getting loaded from them and package is executing successfully.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Regards,
    VT

    if you want to iterate through files then all files should be in same folder and you should use file enumerator type within ForEach loop. Then inside loop you might need a script task to generate the data flow on the fly based on the avialble input columns
    from the file and do the mapping in the destination. So I assume you put NULLs (or some default value) for missing columns from the file

  • How to load word .doc-files into java applications?

    Hi,
    I want to load a word .doc-file (or any other type of document) into a java application, as part of the application.
    Is there any java special library to do it?
    Any solution or hint?
    Thank you.

    No, there is no existing Java library to do it that I am aware of. You could write your own, however, as the Word 97 binary file format is published. I am not sure that the Word 2000, or XP formats are as well, but since they put out the 97 presumably they'd do the same with the rest -- although I am suprised that Micro$$$oft even published the 97 format.
    A library such as this would take quite some time write, due to the extensive format, but here's a link to a copy of it just so you can see what it'd take: http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~bob/Tech/wword8.html
    Also keep in mind that Micro$$$oft has never remained binary compatable between versions. In short, this means that you'd have to parse each version's documents differently. Not a fun task.
    If a Java library to read Micro$$$oft file formats already does exist, I'm willing to bet that it costs $$$ mucho dinero $$$.
    Hey, aren't proprietary file formats just wonderful?

  • Loading data from .csv file into existing table

    Hi,
    I have taken a look at several threads which talk about loading data from .csv file into existing /new table. Also checked out Vikas's application regarding the same. I am trying to explain my requirement with an example.
    I have a .csv file and I want the data to be loaded into an existing table. The timesheet table columns are -
    timesheet_entry_id,time_worked,timesheet_date,project_key .
    The csv columns are :
    project,utilization,project_key,timesheet_category,employee,timesheet_date , hours_worked etc.
    What I needed to know is that before the csv data is loaded into the timesheet table is there any way of validating the project key ( which is the primary key of the projects table) with the projects table . I need to perform similar validations with other columns like customer_id from customers table. Basically the loading should be done after validating if the data exists in the parent table. Has anyone done this kind of loading through the APEX utility-data load.Or is there another method of accomplishing the same.
    Does Vikas's application do what the utility does ( i am assuming that the code being from 2005 the utility was not incorporated in APEX at that time). Any helpful advise is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Anjali

    Hi Anjali,
    Take a look at these threads which might outline different ways to do it -
    File Browse, File Upload
    Loading CSV file using external table
    Loading a CSV file into a table
    you can create hidden items in the page to validate previous records before insert data.
    Hope this helps,

    what i understand from this is system does not identify v_data_array as array for some reasons, please help me.
    initially system was giving error for hex_to_decimal, but i managed to get this function on discussion forum and now it seems to be ok. but v_data_array problem is still there.
    thanks in advance

    Hi,
    Mistakes in your sample I did correct
    Problem 1
    select blob_content into v_blob_data
    from wwv_flow_files where filename = 'DDNEW.csv'; to
    select blob_content into v_blob_data
    from wwv_flow_files where name = :P1_FILE;Problem 2
    EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'insert into TABLE_X (v1, v2, v3, v4 ,v5, v6, v7,v8 ,v9, v10, v11)

    v_data_array(8),
    v_data_array(9),
    v_data_array(10),

  • Load CSV file into a table when a button is clicked by the user

    Hello,
    Can anyone please help me out with this issue, I have a form where in a user comes and uploads a CSV file and clicks a button, when the button is clicked - it should load the CSV file data into the database table for the corresponding columns.
    Can anyone please suggest me a possible solution or an approach.
    Thanks,

    thanks fro replying.
    I have tried your changes but its not working. One more question is that I am having one column which contains commas, when I tried to load the file its failing. I think its the problem with commas. So I have changed the code to use the replace function for that column, then also its not working. Can anyone please suggest a possible approach. Below is my source code for your reference.
