Adding a large number of columns or a large number of rows? I'm
unaware of any method to add a large number of columns other than
using ALTER TABLE.
If you're interested in adding a large number of rows, you may be
interested in COPY.
Also, if you describe your situation in more detail (i.e., what you
are trying to accomplish by adding a large number of columns), you
may receive suggestions on how to do this.

I am not familiar with Oracle, but others on this list may be. If you
provide the Oracle syntax for what you would like to do, perhaps
another may be able to help you.
