Load Large Flat Files into Oracle

by: russell_rc0

Rating7.6Very Good

Does anyone have any advice for an approach for loading large flat files into Oracle?

We do not have any control on the format of the flat files, so there is alot of manipulation (inserting a defined separator / data manipulation) that needs to be done to the files before we can use SQL Loader to load our tables.

Is there a best way to do this? (Perl, Java, Oracle tool.....)
