Unfortunately there is no inbuilt function to convert from rtf to text.

but you can try using Oracle Text CTX_DOC.FILTER , It's a PL/SQL procedure that converts from .rtf to plain text and other formats

 

Here's the official oracle documentation of all functions and procedures of CTX_DOC package , I hope it works

Hey Arthur,

Converting Rich Text Files into plain text could be done in two simple steps. The Method could also be called un-Riching Rich Text.

The first step you have to do is getting the data into Oracle, and then Transform the data.

The first step requires you to change some driver settings. The second is an open source code found online.

You can always visit these two websites for more information:
