I exported a table from access to oracle. The name of the table in access is in mixedcase : t_Projects.
This works ok, i can attach the table in access, but in oracle i cannot select or drop the table.
If i do the same with T_PROJECTS i can select or drop the table in oracle. Now the question : how can i drop the table  t_Projects in oracle ?

Oracle is not keen on mixed case for database objects.

I would suggest that you change the Access table to be all uppercase (or adjust your export to make it all uppercase) and this should resolve the problem.

You need to delete the table using the complete schema name e.g. username.tablename

drop table scott.cust
