I like to extract 2 fields f1 and f2 from a Sybase table CMC_GRGR, into a fileA, then use the fileA to creat a NEW table in Oracle to contain f1 and f2.  How can I do that?

Thank you in advance.

Step 1: Create a view in Sybase as
Create view CMC_GRGR_View as
select f1, f2 from CMC_GRGR

Step 2: Extract the view into a flat file using BCP

Use bcp -h to see more option.

Cheers,
Amit

At the prompt say:

bcp database..CMC_GRGR_View  out flatfilename -c -U username -P password -S server

Cheers !!

usage: bcp [[database_name.]owner.]table_name[:slice_number] {in | out} datafile
        [-m maxerrors] [-f formatfile] [-e errfile]
        [-F firstrow] [-L lastrow] [-b batchsize]
        [-n] [-c] [-t field_terminator] [-r row_terminator]
        [-U username] [-P password] [-I interfaces_file] [-S server]
        [-a display_charset] [-q datafile_charset] [-z language] [-v]
        [-A packet size] [-J client character set]
        [-T text or image size] [-E] [-g id_start_value] [-N] [-X]
        [-M LabelName LabelValue] [-labeled]

Hi,
   After creating the View, just use this following bcp command at the operating system prompt.

bcp <DB NAME>..<TBL NAME> out -U <User NAME> -P <Password> -t "|" -c -S <Server Name>


U can use any character as seprator between the value of 2 filed , just as I had used "|"

After that use the text file which is the o/p of above for SQL Loader to load the data into Oracle Database. Beofre that U will had to create a table with the same struc. in Oracle and then use SQL Loader.

If any more query let me know.

Till then
Cheers
