using ssis to copy oracle table to sql server table

I have no experience with Oracle. I need to copy some tables from an Oracle database to an sql server database. I plan to use SSIS to do it. Is there anything special I will need to know to do this?

Hi,

Some basic points are:

1. if oracle and sql machine are not same. install oracle client on sql machine.
2. setup connection setting on tns.ora on sql machine.(do port opening between for communication).
3. then create a ssis package to transfer data.

try this: http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2011/export-sql-server-data-to-oracle-using-ssis/

First install oracle client in your MS SQL Server based on the version i.e 32bit /64bit. then setup the connect string using TNSNAMES.ORA which will communicate between SQL Server and database server.

Check these below doc for more info.
