How to insert HEX data into a table?
This document helps to understand how to insert HEX data into a table with conversion directly in the CONTROL file to a VARCHAR/CHAR.
i.e Generally if we load RAW data into an Oracle table the RAW field contents will be in HEX data format and later conversion needs to be done through utl_raw.cast_to_varchar2.
But is there a way to go from the HEX value in the input (flat) file straight to a readable VARCHAR/CHAR field in a table?
