I just have the idea like below. Please let me know if this is feasible.
insert into et_hn_nomns
connect opctjad_dba/opctjad_dba@dprdt;
select * from et_hn_nomns

I want to insert into a table in one database by selecting from a table in another database.

Can this be accomplished by any way, with out using DBLink.

Yes it can be done through copy command but it is deprecated as of Oracle 10g , here is the syntax for using the same.


You can use data pump export for exporting the table data from source Database and importing it to target database.

here is the reference doc for expdp/impdp

If you can't use the copy command for any other reason like db links, then may be you can try expdp and impdp to export/import the data into the required tables.
