Hi Lee,

I'm currently working on the exact same thing here - same versions. For us though, it's looking we have eventually decided to cough up for the Gateway for SQLServer license.

What we investigated beforehand was using the DG4ODBC free gateway and the required driver.

Some docs here. dbc.htm

Subject: Pulling data into Oracle from SQL Server


Was wondering if anyone had experience of the best (and cheapest) way to do this was ?

On Linux with Oracle 11gR2. SQL Server is 2008 I think (maybe 2005)

I know we can do it from the other side i.e push the data in from SQL Server but it would be preferable to have this is as part of our existing process so could be ran from within an Oracle package.

i.e does some stuff in a proc then starts sucking some data from the SQL Server DB.

I was hoping to avoid any expensive "Gateway" products ?

Cheers and TIA
