you can use colsep   to  create csv,  but it won't concatenate all the values onto a single line

I think the space is fine as the new table in which I would load this data has also the same space defined so no constraints

Thanks for your comment...

Would like to know any tools that can help to assist me in loading this new CSV file apart from SQL Loader to load the data as I am not able to find SQL Loader.exe in C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_1\BIN

Please help

Oracle's free tool SQL Developer has a data loader

3rd party products PL/SQL Develoer and Toad have data loaders too


if your local client is incomplete, you can reinstall
