Oracle Apex Data loading.

I have a couple of different apps that use the Data Loading module in Apex.

All my other apps have a CSV which always have the first row as a heading. Under this scenario, As long as the heading matches the Table column, it automatically maps.

Now, i have to insert a CSV with no heading. Problem is, it asks me to map the data manually.

Is there anyway in apex to have the Data Loading mapping happen automatically based on what colum it's being inserted into?

eg;

Table has
col1, col2, col3, col4.


csv has
data1,data2,data3,data4


can the first column of the CSV be automatically mapped to the first column of the table, and so on?

Thanks,

Hi!

Every column of a csv file needs to be mapped somehow. Either using a header row or manually mapping.
Saying that there is another approach in Oracle to load csv files and even without header rows but this mapps a table to a sertain name of a csv file. :)
This method uses External table. See more in these blogs

Hi!

Please review:

B is the grade given for acceptable solutions, or a link to an acceptable solution. A B grade means the solution given lacked some information or required you to do a good amount of extra work to resolve the problem. When closing the question, the asker should explain why a B grade was awarded.

So why B ?
