Hi All,

I have one paradox file called "A.DB" with atleast 20 columns.

Now i want to push those column's data into oracle10g DB.

What's the way to do that programatically, i mean on a push button trigger.


Regards,

Waqar

I don't know whether Oracle can (or can not) read Paradox files directly, but the most straightforward way to load any kind of data into an Oracle database is to create a CSV file (comma separated values) based on your source table (in this case it would be a Paradox table) and load it into Oracle using SQL*Loader.

You might also be able to use ODBC or the code in the link below, perhaps with some modification. Paradox, DBASE, and FoxPro are all XBASE and can read each other's files, so they must have the same or very similar formats, which you can look up.

I've never said that it can't be done, but that I don't know whether it is possible or not. ODBC? Sure, why not?!
