I would attempty this:
* if you have the oracle client installed on the sql server box, you can create a linked server in sql server, pointing to the oracle database
* create the table to be imported in oracle as needed.
* run a query like this in sql server
INSERT INTO OPENQUERY(your_linked_server, 'SELECT col1, col2, col3 ... FROM table_owner.table_name WHERE 1= 0 ' )
 SELECT field1, field2, field3 ...
   FROM your_sql_table
  WHERE ..

Open in new window

if Oracle server is in your network, even you can create linked server and can use the same query explained in example link

If you are using SQL Server 2000, then You can export table in Enterprise Manager using Import Export Wizard from SQL Server to Oracle easily.

If you are using SQL Server 2004, then you can Export Data by Right clicking Database in SSMS and then Choose Tasks --> Export Data.

Both of the above options opens a wizard which will help you in defining the Source and Destination databases along with tables.

Its done.

I like to go for the ODBC driver instead.
Appreciate if anyone used it?

when I wrote "oracle client", that was referring to a "minimal install" with the ODBC part and the oracle tns client part.

That is an old production sql server box and No install is permitted.
I can do anything on the Oracle Box instead.

I hope you can use the Import Export wizard from SQL Server.
Try it out.

you could create an intermediate sql server, with a linked server to both the mssql and the oracle database...

on oracle, you could investigate on creating a heterogeneous connection, but I never yet adventured me into that (although I would like to do that once :)

the ms access can also work, if the table(s) not toooooo large.

The table is small table.
rrjegan17,

Export import wizard needs to use ODBC .. that is what I am asking to set it up.

Thanks,

Can you kindly install Oracle ODBC driver in your windows machine from the link below:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/windows/odbc/index.html

Once you install that you will find this ODBC driver in your Import / Export Wizard.

Hope this helps.
