Exporting from SQL Server to Oracle

Can we export all procedures and triggers from Microsoft SQL Server to Oracle8i?

The answer is no. Even if you could perform such an export, importing would not work. The reason is that MS SQL Server uses T-SQL for its procedural language and Oracle uses PL/SQL. T-SQL and PL/SQL are not identical. T-SQL will not work on Oracle and likewise, PL/SQL will not work on SQL Server. You'll have to look at your SQL Server procedure and trigger code and rewrite it for Oracle.
