I need to build a web page that allows the user to import a text file into an Oracle table.  Does anyone have a code example of doing this?  The text file is not delimited in any way.  I know that you have to use the FilsSystemObject to read the text file.  I need to read the text file line by line and store the data in the Oracle table.  DOes anyone have a code example?

Thanks.

it goes something like this......

identify your tnsnames by finding your tnsnames.ora file

tnsnames.ora_alias =(DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL=TCP)(Host=247.249.22.231)(Port=1500))
      (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = yourSID)))

then here is the code you would need in asp:


      Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      objConn.ConnectionString = "DSN=tnsnames.ora_alias;UID=username;PWD=password"
      objConn.Open

      Dim fs, a
      Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      Set a = fs.OpenTextFile("C:\File.txt")

      if err.number = 0 then
          while not (a.atEndOfStream)

            text_str = a.ReadLine
            SqlString = "Insert into Table (Column) values '" + text_str.Replace("'","''") + "'"
            objConn.SqlString SqlString

          wend

      else
            Response.write(err.description)
      end if

later,
Rob;-)
