I would like to regularly copy data snapahots from a very busy and very live Oracle 8i database onto a SQL Server 2000 system.
Regular exports are taken of the Oracle database, and it would be really neat if I could import from these directly into SQL Server. This would have the benefits of a) no extra load on the live server, b) no special extract, transform and load code required, c) there would be automatic propogation of any schema changes.
Are there any tools that will enable a seamless import of an Oracle 8i export onto SQL Server. If not, why not?
None that I'm aware of. Why not? Because no one has built one.
