Hi,
I'm trying to move date from SQL Server database into Oracle db using windows form as GUI.
I have made this works ok in reversed way (from oracle to SQL server) but with this direction I'm facing with the problem in line 28 (copy is underlined) and it says

Overload resolution failed because no accessible 'New' can be called with these arguments:
    'Public Sub New(connectionString As String)': Value of type 'System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection' cannot be converted to 'String'.
    'Public Sub New(connection As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection)': Value of type 'System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection' cannot be converted to 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection'.      


Please if someone can help me to solve this problem

Thanks in advanced....

        Dim conn1 As New SqlConnection(My.Settings.MyCon)

        conn1.Open()



        Dim cmd1 As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand()

        cmd1.Connection = conn1

        cmd1.CommandType = CommandType.Text

        cmd1.CommandText = "select * from MySqlServerTable where date= @date_val"

        cmd1.Parameters.Add("@date_val", SqlDbType.NVarChar)

        cmd1.Parameters("@date_val").Value = Me.DateTimePicker1.Value.ToString("yyyy.mm.dd")

        cmd1.CommandTimeout = 0

        Dim rdr As SqlDataReader = cmd1.ExecuteReader

        Dim dt As New DataTable("IFRS")

        dt.Load(rdr)

        rdr.Close()

        conn1.Close()



        Using cn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(m_sConn2)

            cn.Open()



            Dim cmd As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand

            cmd.Connection = cn

            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text

            cmd.CommandText = "DELETE FROM  myoracletable"

            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()



            Using copy As New SqlBulkCopy(cn)

                copy.DestinationTableName = "myoracletable"

                copy.WriteToServer(dt)

            End Using

        End Using

        MessageBox.Show("Successfully inserted on Oracle!", "Status", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)

SqlBulkCopy is part of System.Data.SQLClient and can only be used with SQLConnection. here you are trying to create SqlBulkCopy instance passing OleDBConnection. its not possible.

system.data.oledb has no bulkcopy option. If you want to do bulk copy to oracle db try using ODP.net (oracle data provider .net). ODP provides bulk copy option simillar to sqlclient.

bulk copy is supported from odp .net Release 11.1.0.6.20, you can update the oracle client to this version to use this bulkcopy class.
