Hi Experts,

I have a questions about Importing Data into Oracle I/PM.  I have several PDF files (check Images) and a Excel sheet (Index fields I want to import).  Is there a utility or way of importing this data while checking the excel file index files.  

Thank for all your help.

1) Import your pdf files into a table in your Oracle database with type either as "BFILE" or BLOB.
2) Save your Excel index fields as "csv" file
3) Attach that csv file to database as external table
4) Code an sql query to update the pdf table with the index info.
5) Go celebrate your success.
:p
