MS Access to Oracle Database Conversion

Hi Access Gurus

The MS Access DB (MS Access 2002 Database) which is currently serving
as the backend Database to MS Access (MS Access 2002/XP) frontend needs
to be converted to Oracle 8i Backend (With the frontend still being MS
Access 2002). The Client is very particular about the conversion.

Would appreciate if any suggestion can be given as to how to start and
go ahead with conversion. Whether the Upsize Wizard used by MS Access
can be used to better effect or any other tool is provided by Oracle (i
have done MS SQL Server both by using MS Access Upsize Wizard and also
by DTS).

Any suggestion of good books related to conversion and also PL/SQL in
general is also welcome.

Thanx and Wishing You all a Happy and Prosperous New Year

Regards
Bala

Oracle used to provide their own upsizing tool, I don't know if they still
offer it, and don't recall comments from users. Try going to Oracle's
website and searching for it.

OracleHelper was not published officially by Microsoft as part of the DAAB but it was given as a helper code in a sample .Net...

Um yeah....In case you haven't figured it out, Microsoft sucks. I'm going to be kicked back in my chair eating popcorn and watching football 10 years from now, while all you clowns are scrambling to rewrite all your code because Microsoft upgraded all their crap and nothing you wrote 10 years earlier works. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Microsoft is unreliable. Try opening an Excel 95 spreadsheet you wrote in...

I scoured the groups for some hands on code to perform the menial task of exporting table data from an Access 2000 database to Oracle database (in this case, it was oracle 8i but i'm assuming this will work for 9i and even 10g ) No one had what I needed, so I wrote it myself. I Rule. This code isn't going for efficiency, and isn't trying to be dynamic. It doesn't create the table structure in Oracle, that's up to you. (I

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
