Q

Importing a dmp file to Access

I have someone who ftp's a dmp file, which is an export of an Oracle database. How can I import that to Access Database?
An Oracle dump file is in a proprietary Oracle format. You will not be able to import the dump file's contents directly in MS Access. You'll have to import the Oracle dump file into an Oracle database first. Then, set up an ODBC DSN to point to the MS Access database. Next, in Access, choose File->Get External Data->Import. In the Files Of Type drop down box, choose ODBC Databases(). Now select the DSN to your Oracle database. The wizard will then guide you to selecting the tables in the Oracle database that you want to import into MS Access.
