i've written a procedure in Oracle which reads records through cursor from SQL server table and insert into another table in sql server. The access of tables is through heterogeneous database link. This works fine for say 100 records but for large no of records i get exception
"ORA-28500: connection from ORACLE to a non-Oracle system returned this message:
[Generic Connectivity Using ODBC]
ORA-02063: preceding 2 lines from DBLINKNAME

I'm not a SQL Server person.  I'm responding to a Neglected question alert.

There's not a lot of error messages to work with.  I suggest you contact Oracle Support on this one since no other Expert has shown up.
