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.
