Exporting data from Oracle 7.3.4 to 10g
I have tried to find some kind of description/guidelines/step-by-step on upgrading Oracle 7.3.4 to Oracle 10g by exporting data from 7.3.4 and importing into 10g. Is this possible or not? If it is, is there any detailed document for this?
While there is no direct migration path available from Oracle 7.3.4 to Oracle 10g, you should be able to upgrade via the export/import method. This method requires that you build a 10g database, export your 7.3.4 database and then import into the 10g database.
If you wish to upgrade in place from Oracle 7.3.4 to Oracle 10g (either release 1 or 2), you must first upgrade your 7.3.4 database to 18.104.22.168, and then you can upgrade to Oracle 10g.
How you upgrade depends on many factors – disk space, physical memory on the server, etc. A good source of information is the Oracle documentation on Oracle's Technology Network Web site.
