try to use the sqlloader as mentioned above to do the bulk loading of the data. if you think for sure that you have hit a problem using sqlloader and that cannot be resolved, then try the alternate option of using utl_file package as that requires some programming effort from you/your team right.

With Oracle Forms6i running in client/server mode (as you told us in another recent question) if you want Forms to load data from either an Excel or *.csv file, that file must be located on the client computer (or on a network drive that is accessible from the client computer).  You normally cannot use a file on the database server computer for this (unless you have a directory there that is shared with the clients).  Also, you normally cannot use SQL*Loader (which is a server-side utility) or UTL_FILE (which is also a server-side program).  

But Oracle Forms supports the FILE_IO utility to read or write from files on the client PC.  You can use this Oracle Forms built-in (FILE_IO) to read the Excel or *.csv file, then use PL\SQL logic in Oracle Forms to process the data from the file.  This is easy with *.csv or *.txt files.  I have never done this with Excel files and Oracle Forms.
