Why not simply export the database to a comon format, like CSV, and then import it to the other format using the same selection, of CSV (which is universal among all databases)?  You can chnage the delimeter from a comma to a semicolon, which helps in text field input fields.  This is the easiest way, and then view the database, to make sure no errant commas or semicolons set everything off one.  If so, just find that character, change it, and then export again and import again .... it is easy.

scrathcyboy, kilwani is not just looking for data transfer, but store procedures, field/tables, indexes, keys ... etc sturctures as well. I/O CSV won't work in this case. Oracle workbench is one way to go.

kilwani, things you should be aware when you use workbench:
http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/migration/ama/docs/ama_wp.pdf

Why you couldn't install the Workbench? What kind of error message you are getting at?

You could also try this tool:
http://www.swissql.com/products/sqlserver-to-oracle/sql-server-to-oracle.html

Personally, I like this one better:
http://www.spectralcore.com/fullconvert/features.php

Because it logs all the error, and I could track and fix it later. (I don't believe error free on such migration process.)

After all, you should have a test system built as same as the target production system. So you could test till a good result. Of course, you should remember to test with your front end application(s) with the test system. And write down in documenation for anything not right. So you may track it or post to EE here :)

HTH.
