Take a look at Oracle Hetergeneous Services.

There are a few ways to implement this but the most straightforward seems to be to create an ODBC datasource for your MS object and then create a local Oracle Hetergeneous service and listener. Once you have done this you can create tnsnames entries and db links to the listener in the normal fashion.

Cheers,

Ian

Hi guys,

Is there a way for me to somehow create a "dblink" between different databases (MS SQL Server, Acess, Excel ODBC and Oracle) and access these through a single sql interface and join the tables from different databases into views?

Thanks.
