Greetings,
I would like to create a link in my mysql instance to allow me to perform select statements against oracle.  What I am going to do is create a user in oracle with select privledges only, and in stored procedures I am going to perform said select statements as source data from oracle and land them in mysql.

Thanks much

from what I know, this is not possible.
you can (using federated engine tables) query remote mysql tables, but not other database engines.

the other way round would work, using oracle odbc db link gateways:

Thank you very much.  While I couldn't work the solution I needed.  I added this to my knowledge base and asked my DBAs to research this as a resolution.  If I have any further questions, I'll let you know.

Confronted with some SQL you don't know can be a daunting task. It can be even more daunting if that SQL carries some of the old secret codes used in the Ye Olde query syntax, such as: (+)     as used in Oracle;     *=     =*    as used in Sybase …
