Exporting from Microsoft Access to Oracle

  1. You must do this first!!!

    First run C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe (or type ODBC Data Sources 64-bit on the start menu)

Under User DSN you will see entries for DSN’s you have created for any Uni database servers.

Click Add if you have never connected to a Oracle database before. Select the Oracle driver.

Give the DSN a name, select the TNS Service name from the list and enter your userid. Click test connection. Enter your password.


Afterwards, go back to your already open Microsoft Access database.

Right-click on the table you want to export to Oracle and select ‘Export’. Choose ODBC Database.

create table customer as select * from "customer";
