Not that straight forward I m afraid - Think in terms of Access as a
database which is part of the MS OFFice application suit - Think of Oracle
in terms of a mainfraime. Oracle is a totally different Architecture.
You will need SQL loader within Oracle - You have to create a text control
file which has SQL code that will tell oracle where to look for the source
data file.
You will aslo need to create an error file.
You then have to kick it off using SQL+ within Oracle afteter you have
creted a table within oracle using SQL+ specifying field widths and formats.
In Oracle 9i you can use external tables ie where oracle leaves the source
data alone and only presents it within oracal.
But SQL loader is your main bet.

I believe that oracle comes with some tools that can import data from

You don't mention what data engine you are using on the ms-access side, as
the office cd does ship with both a file based engine (JET), and a server
based engine (MSDE).

However, as far as I know, Oracle has tools that will import data from
either of the above data engines. So, I would check in a oracle group.

You also don't mention if you are trying to just move some data into Oracle.
Do you plan to continue to use ms-access as the client to the oracle data
base (which is certainly possible). Or, are you actually going to re-write
the access application with the Oracle development tools (the Oracle
database does NOT have an ability to create the user interface...but Oracle
does sell additional tools that allow you to create the UI).
