You're likely to need to give more information, but even so, this is not a question for SO. Try Database Administrators –  Mike W Oct 9 '13 at 0:09
You need to give more information about what you're trying yo achieve. Specifically, what do you mean by "without creating table firstly"? We can't "move" a file into the database. We can load the data from a CSV file into a table. So you need a table. Do you mean you don't want to create an external table to load the CSV? –  APC Oct 9 '13 at 4:31

Check How to Import from Excel to a New Oracle Table with SQL Developer and How to Import from Excel to Oracle with SQL Developer, they talk about loading xls files into a db, but the process is the same for CSV. It will let you import into an existing table or let you create a table as part of the import process.

I hope those links survive forever. –  Colin 't Hart Jun 7 '14 at 16:07
