Has anyone use conv72.exe (as part of msspnt.exe) from Oracle to convert stored procedures.  When I run it from the command prompt on NT or Win95, it just stops waiting and I must abort to get back to the op.sys. prompt.  I'm certain that I have donwloaded the right versijon.
Any suggestion?

I do not know what conv72.exe do but if you want to get procedure body you can do this via sql*plus :
set head off
spool c:\output.sql
select text from user_source where name='PROCEDURE_NAME' and type='PROCEDURE' order by line;
spool off;

I used it and it worked ok, converting a bunch of stp to Oracle.
I used the Cd version of Oracle companion v 3. I think you can get it free from Oracle.
Good luck.

Thanks mordi
I'm using a DOS window within Win95 and typing the followiing...
conv72 -P sp_xxx.sql  <enter>
and nothing happens.  I have also tried this in an NT server, and also with an outfile as
conv72 -P sp_xxx.sql sp_xyz.out
How did you use it?
