similar here. Selecting from SQL Server tables from within an Oracle
database that is.
It can be done relatively inexpensively (about $4k per cpu for the ODBC
You need to look into "Oracle Heterogeneous Services" and install them on
the Oracle DB Server
This requires a 3rd party ODBC driver. We chose the SQL Server Wire Protocol
ODBC driver from DataDirect. Once you have configured the Hetero Services
and the ODBC driver all you do is create a database link! Then you can
select form the SQL Server table as if it was a remote Oracle table. (with
limits as SQL Server is not as powerful an engine as Oracle)
Initial installation took about 1/2 day, including the trial software
Pretty sweet solution for small tables!

To: Multiple recipients of list ORACLE-L
I have a unusual request from one of new clients. I have an application that
is 100% Oracle forms 6i, and reports 6i and DB 8.1.7 running on W2K
platform. Clients wants to know whether he can populate a LOV on Oracle form
with data from one of the columns of a table in SQL Server 2000.
Is there a way to achieve this with something like database link, dynamic
link, etc. ..........
Appreciate any help or lead or direction to documentation in regard
Thanks in advance
