It is VERY necessary for me to be able to migrate data from FoxPro to Oracle. I can create a data file from FoxPro, but can't get SQL*Loader to work.

First there were problems creating the log file and with the location of the control file. I finally tried using the root directory for everything (I'm using Novell 5 on a DOS 6.22 machine ... yeah I know, antiquated).

Finally I got error 918, "the catalog must be loaded (as SYS) for SQL*Loader to be used."

The illustrious documentation said, "logon as SYS and load the Oracle catalog and the views in the script ULVIEW.SQL." Nowhere in the Oracle, Netware, or $200 worth of books I purchased can I find any information about an "Oracle catalog." And nowhere on the CD's I got with the Novell 5/Oracle 8 bundle is there a file called ULVIEW.SQL.

Can anyone help?
