This sounds like a job for a Pro*C program.

If the ID's, passwords, and targets are static you could potentially define database links for each location and then just use each link in turn from PL/SQL code, but you cannot issue a connect in PL/SQL code.

Subject: PL/SQL connect

Is there anyway to use the SQL Connect command in PL/SQL? I have a cursor that has all of the necessary components of the Connect command (id, pw, sid, host, and port) and I want to loop through it and use the Connect command to sign onto a bunch of databases.

I know I can create data links to handle it but I would prefer to avoid that if I can.

Any ides?
