How to Migrate Data from Oracle Dump Files to SQL Server with OraDump to MSSQL 4.5
If you need to transfer data from Oracle dump files to Microsoft SQL database, you may find it challenging to do so without Oracle installation. Fortunately, there is a tool that can help you with this task: OraDump to MSSQL 4.5.
OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 is a program that can read Oracle dump files (both EXP and EXPDP) directly and convert them to SQL Server format. It supports all versions of Oracle dump files, including encrypted ones, and all versions of MS SQL servers. It also preserves indexes, foreign keys, and other database objects during the conversion.
In this article, we will show you how to use OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 to migrate data from Oracle dump files to SQL Server in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download and install OraDump to MSSQL 4.5
You can download OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 from the official website of Intelligent Converters[^1^], the developer of the program. The installation process is straightforward and does not require any special skills or settings.
Step 2: Launch OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 and select the source Oracle dump file
After installing OraDump to MSSQL 4.5, launch it from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut. You will see the main window of the program, where you can select the source Oracle dump file by clicking on the "..." button next to the "Source file" field.
You can also specify the character set of the source file if it is different from the default one. If you have a parallel export Oracle dump file, you can select all parts of it by holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on them.
Step 3: Select the destination SQL Server database
Next, you need to select the destination SQL Server database where you want to import the data from the Oracle dump file. You can do this by clicking on the "..." button next to the "Target database" field.
You will see a dialog box where you can enter the connection parameters for the SQL Server database, such as server name, port number, user name, password, and database name. You can also test the connection by clicking on the "Test connection" button.
Step 4: Customize the conversion settings
OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 allows you to customize various aspects of the conversion process, such as types mapping, columns selection, tables filtering, and more. You can access these options by clicking on the "Settings" button at the bottom of the main window.
For example, you can map Oracle data types to corresponding SQL Server data types by using the "Types mapping" tab. You can also select which columns of each table you want to convert by using the "Select columns" tab. You can also filter out certain tables by using the "Filter tables" tab.
Step 5: Start the conversion process
Once you have configured all the settings according to your preferences, you can start the conversion process by clicking on the "Convert" button at the bottom of the main window. You will see a progress bar that shows you how much of the conversion has been completed.
OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 will create a new database on SQL Server with the same structure as the source Oracle dump file and import all data into it. You can also export data into a T-SQL script file instead of creating a new database by using the "Export data into script file" option in the settings.
OraDump to MSSQL 4.5 is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that can help you migrate data from Oracle dump files to SQL Server without Oracle installation. It supports all versions of Oracle dump files and MS SQL servers and preserves all database objects during the conversion.
