export the tables as SQL (it will generate a lot of simple insert instructions per file) and execute the files in access

Hi, you can use this software:

You have to pay, but there is a trial version that maybe fits your needs.

In the schema browser, select tables. IN the Left Hand Side (LHS) select
the tables you want to create elsewhere. Right click and select "create
script". Fill in the options and OK.

1- first you need to create a duplicate Oracle table in Access.
2- you might need to change some of the datatype, as the datatype in Access is different from Oracle. run the script in Access.
3- export the Oracle data using Toad's Export option and choose export to CSV file format.
4- then import the data into Access. here is the steps to import data into Access using CSV files: http://www.brighthub.com/computing/windows-platform/articles/27511.aspx
