Hello experts, i am a novice when it come to oracle.  I have been given the task of converting a excel spreadsheet into a number of relational tables in oracle 9i.  I really dont know where to get started or what schema to use.  I have created a number of databases with sql server and to my knowledge Toad is a lot like Enterprize Manager for sql server.  The whole schema thing throws me off, is there any good tutorials or advice in designing this database within oracle?  Can Toad do what I need?

hi,
  Oracle Concepts and Administrator's guide will be a good starting point.
To give for your situation,
 Create a user to hold your tables
 Create tablespace to hold your table data and indexes
Create your tables while you are connected to your username
Toad can help a lot for beginners to do these activities. But you will need to connect to toad with a username who has DBA privileges, to create user and tablespaces.

Oracle has it's own enterprise manager called OEM.
TOAD is more of a third party GUI interface to the database.

Also I am sure you're aware of what's called a database in SQL server is equivalent to Oracle schema.

Schema is nothing but a set of space allocated to a user on the database. Each user has his own schema to work with.

Here's a link on creating tables.

If you downloaded the Oracle client, install with the 'Administrator' option to get the OEM utility.
