I am migrating a certain table from an old application (oracle 9 database) to a new application (ms sql server). I queried this table in our oracle database and there is a total of 1439 rows. How can I validate this data to ensure that all data was transfer from the old application to the new application. I only have access to the oracle database and not the ms sql database. However I do have access to the new application that also displays the total count of 1439.

Since you don't have database access to the SQL Server database:

Personally I would select a few rows that have all columns pouplated and a few where some of the fields are at their maximum length (a varchar2(10) has 10 characters in it, a number(4) has 4 numbers),

Then use the app to locate them.

Can you possible get the DBA on the SQL Server database to create a Text file extract of the table?

I've not used Toad much but it looks like it can do the compare for you:
