Use sqlloader and a .ctl file (per .csv) that loads the records. Just have a look at the sqlldr reference, it has some samples.

Sample ctl file: (call it sqlldr.ctl)

load data
 infile 'employee.txt'
 into table employee
 fields terminated by ","
 ( id, name, dept, salary )

Sample script:

sqlldr scott/tiger control=sqlldr.ctl
