oracle for dummy

Hi Guys,

I was attached to a company for a couple of weeks. They are running oracle and the problem is, i know nothing about oracle(running on sun)..

I know about sql (windows) , linux, unix......but not oracle.

So, anyone got a good link for newbie in oracle? FOr example doing query, starting up database, starting lsnrctl...etc...

Thanks a lot guys.

"starting up database, starting lsnrctl...etc" Those are not typical tasks for a "newbie in oracle".  Those are typically tasks for an experienced Oracle DBA or a system administrator.

Many simple SQL statements and queries work the same way in SQL Server and in Oracle, but there are very significant differences too between Oracle and SQL Server.

Hi,
  What is the version of Oracle that you are using?
Learn the basic concepts of the database
What is a database, instance, tablespace, users, profiles
What is meant by database startup, shutdown, create and administer tablespaces,  users, profiles, tables, views
Administer them using the Enterprise Manager
and slowly go for full concepts, command based administration, performance tuning, backup and recovery.
Google is the best place to find links fast
and if it is a production database, it is best to go for a classroom training at the earliest, especially if you are the only person administering the database.
 And as Anand said, our esteemed collegues are here to help you.
