I want to unzip a local csv file.

With the unzip contents I want to load a table.

The problem is that I cannot load the table without unzipping the file

Is it possible to unzip the file with WinSCP?


Thanks for the support,
Gustavo

WinSCP cannot unzip local file by itself. You have to have external application installed for that. Then you may be able to call it from local file context menu within WinSCP.

Again not directly. but it can use remote application to unzip it without downloading it to local directory.

Hi,

How can I unzip a file in a server using WinSCP?
The path is "/home/appladmin/APEX/apex_3.2.zip"
When I double click the file, it opens winzip application and saves unzipped files in temporary directory which seems to be in my local drive.
When I tried to extract those files to a specific folder in the server I see only the folders in my local drive.
Would appreciate step by step instruction.

Thanks,
Guy

You need to use remote command, such as custom command. See some examples too.
