populate data from csv into oracle

I have a csv file and I need to populate the data into an oracle table.
The csv is in the form of excel sheet.
I tried to import the data from excel into MS Access and then export the same into oracle database but all the data is stored in the form of varchar(ex: number field in access is being stored as varchar in oracle table).
is there any thing that I could to keep the data type and still export the data to oracle table?

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Going back a step, are the data types correct in Access?

Another approach that doesn't involve the intermediate Access is to use your own create DDL statement and then just directly import the CSV.
