Ideally, one would use Oracle's Migration Workbench to facilitate the conversion from one RDBMS to Oracle. This utility can be found at the following URL:http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/migration/workbench/index.html
Unfortunately, this will not work for FoxPro. So you will have to dump the data to a database-independent format and then use Oracle's utilities to load that data. From FoxPro, you'll have to dump your tables as comma-delimited flat files. Then you can use Oracle's SQL*Loader to load these files into Oracle tables.
