What is the syntax for loading an Oracle from an access tbl using a pass through query?  I'm not sure how to reference the access table in the sql statement.

The pass through query will be executed on the server side, so I'm afraid that your Access table will not be seen from there. Can't you use a normal query to populate the Oracle linked table thru ODBC?

yes I can but it is taking a long time to load the Oracle table.  I am looking for a faster method of loading.

I am not sure where the bottleneck is. Is is Access, or is it Oracle: Try to load your Access table into another Access database.

If it is faster, then you will need to drop the indexes on the Oracle table before the upload, and recreate them when finished. This is what is usually done. Also, if the table is large, you could tune your oracle.ini file, increasing LARGE_POOL_SIZE and mostly SHARED_POOL_SIZE. (I personally doubled the default values)

If it is not faster, Access is the bottleneck and all you can try is compacting the database, or optimizing the query. Can you paste the SQL here?

This would involve the "dynamic" generation of INSERT statements with filled fields where the INSERT statement's syntax is as under Oracle.

I would create a function for this to read the access table "cursored" row by row and place that in the passthrough query like:

dim qd as querydef
dim rs as recordset

set qd = currentdb.querydefs("your passthrough query")
set rs = currentdb.openrecordset("your access table")

WHILE not rs.eof
 strSQL = "INSERT INTO yourOracleTableName field1, field2 VALUES (" & rs!field1 & "," & rs!field2 & ");"
 td.SQL = strSQL
 currentdb.execute ("your passthrough query")
 rs.movenext
WEND


It's air-code, but I guess you get the idea.
