Hi,
I have a csv file and I need to populate the data into an oracle table.
The csv is in the form of excel sheet.
I tried to import the data from excel into MS Access and then export the same into oracle database but all the data is stored in the form of varchar(ex: number field in access is being stored as varchar in oracle table).
is there any thing that I could to keep the data type and still export the data to oracle table?

Thanks,
Samanth.

Samanth,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Going back a step, are the data types correct in Access?

Another approach that doesn't involve the intermediate Access is to use your own create DDL statement and then just directly import the CSV.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
