Migrating from 8i to SQL 7

I have a huge database in Oracle8i that I need to migrate to SQL 7.0. I won't be using Oracle8i anymore. I tried to use DTS Import/Export wizard of SQL 7.0. But it does not show the Oracle table that I wish to migrate.

If DTS does not work, then you'll have to dump the Oracle data to comma-delimited files. From there, you can use DTS to import the data into SQL Server. You can dump the data from Oracle into a comma-delimited file with SQL*Plus. This is a more manual process than using DTS to do all of the work for you, but it will work in the end.

On another note, it seems to me that converting to SQL 7 from Oracle8i is a step backward. Why not convert to SQL Server 2000?
