I'll assume from the context of your question that by "SQL", you mean Microsoft's SQL Server. Oracle supports stored procedures written in PL/SQL and Java. SQL Server's procedural language, Transact-SQL, while having many features in common with PL/SQL, looks very different. To answer your question, Oracle will not run Transact-SQL stored procedures. However, someone with a solid understanding of both should have no problem translating the code.
