using toad to automate etl from oracle query to sql server table

I just transfered to a new group who mostly uses oracle and toad (I have little oracle experince; use Access and sql server often). No one seems to use any automation and I want to find out if it's possible to schedule a query to run, from oracle tables, and save the results to a sql server table.

If that can't be done, can I just save to a test file (I can then use ssis to load that data into sql server).

It looks like Toad has a scheduler (we're using Toad for Oracle v. 9.5.0.31, no add-ons), so, can I schedule with that, or, should I use the command line interface and schedule with windows task scheduler (it's on a win 2003 server box)?

thanks

I agree, do not use Toad.

What is your reason for loading into sql server?

If it is because you do not know Oracle, I agree, learn Oracle.  It isn't that hard.

seems like one of zaharin's suggestions will work...use the action palet. I tried and seems like it will work...can run what i want manually, just can't schedule it yet, which looks like a permission issue with the windows task scheduler...have to get that sorted out tomorrow.

Going to sql server because that's what I know, at least for now. I'll be creating some spread sheets that get the data via a connection. Also, our oracle production data is pretty tightly locked down and I would be able to query it from excel.

"I'll be creating some spread sheets that get the data via a connection. "
- if you need to get the data to excel from oracle, you can use toad. run the query in toad then right click on the adta grid and choose "save as". then choose "excel instance"/"excel file". here is a link on that:
