Interbase *.db tables to oracle

Does anybody how to convert from *.db tables to oracle tables? Do I have to create the tables first and then load them with data?
I really want to do DDL and DML together if possible.

Thank you.

You can use the DataPump tool that comes with Delphi...

Sigalos,

I think *.db files are Paradox tables not Interbase. I'm certainly no Oracle expert but as a general approach you could load the *.db file into a TTable component and then use the Fields property to build up a Create Table script, adding in the column definitions based on the DataType of each field in the Paradox table.  eg :

  for i:=0 to table1.fieldcount-1 do
  begin
    Case table1.fields[i].DataType of
      ftString : {add your code to the script}
      ftInteger : {add your code to the script}
      ftDate : {add your code to the script}

      .
      .
      etc..
      .
      .

    end;

  end;


Once you've built up a create table script execute and commit it.

Then you can loop through the records in the dataset building up an INSERT statement for each one and firing that off to the server.

the datapump tool would be the easiest method, but comes only with delphi c/s i guess

to do it by hand,
you could simply connect ttables to the databases (databasename),
on oracle-side the table must be allways closed,
now iterate through the tables on the not oracle-side,
set on both the ttables the tablename
open the not oracle-side ttable
use the tbatchmove-method like
tbl_notOracleSide.BatchMove(tbl_OracleSide,batCopy);

no ddl/dml is needed

well, not tested by myself, but could work

I don't have the datapump tool, because I am using the Enterprise Edition.
As of the second answer, I had that in mind too and it looks like the best approach for now.
As of the last one, it looks like easier, but I don't have a test platform yet until the next two months to test it myself.
Does the ADO component provide any easier way to do it?
