Oracle generic connectivity is a solution. Create an ODBC link to Sybase database. Using Oracle Heterogeneous services it is possible to link to Sybase schema from Oracle DB Link.

See this link for a worked out example for transferring data from Excel to Oracle via ODBC

Another way would be to create a comma separated list of your data from sysbase into a text file.
Then use SQLLOADER to load into ORACLE.

You could write a sql command to do that, something like

select col1||','||col2||','||coln from <tname> ;

and spool the output into a text file.
