mainframe! that means it is not a RDBMS database. Maybe convert mainframe data into text file and then using SQL*loader to upload text files into Oracle database. Certainly, tables in ORacle should be defined first.

Hi,

You can also have a look at

http://www-db.stanford.edu/~ullman/fcdb/oracle/or-load.html

Or you could look at SQL*LOADER which is described here ..

http://www.orafaq.org/faqloadr.htm#WHATIS

SQL*Loader is a bulk loader utility used for moving data from external files into the Oracle database. Its syntax is similar to that of the DB2 Load utility, but comes with more options. SQL*Loader supports various load formats, selective loading, and multi-table loads.

Cheers,

T.

my experience is that "I need to write program" to change data from Progress database to text file record by record.
