Convert Access to Oracle.

DBSync/DBConvert for MS Access and Oracle is a two-way migration tool that fully converts and synchronizes Microsoft Access databases (MDB, ACCDB) to Oracle Server and vice versa.

With DBConvert from Access to Oracle you can also make database conversion between Oracle databases. Or between two Access databases. You are simply using them as both the source and destination types.

All customizations for target database are presented in an intuitive tree-like browser that greatly simplifies adjusting settings and handling personal parameters. Everything, including table structure, fields, indexes, relations and data will be transferred smoothly with just a few clicks!

Saving Access data to an Oracle Dump file is also available in order to overcome server access restrictions.

Conversion and synchronization can be run automatically with our powerful scheduler or manually in command line mode.

Replication of Access databases with Oracle server could not be easier than using DBSync software. Just configure a few options in order to enable insert, update and drop synchronization types that bring your data into alignment between source and target databases.

Bi-directional synchronization is available with our Access and Oracle Sync software.

Using Access to Oracle conversion and synchronization tools.

When you start DBConvert or DBSync application in GUI mode it guides you through several steps to set up the database migration or synchronization:

1. Connect to Access source database.

If a source database requires you to log in, you can specify a user name/ password and host/ port parameters.

Connect to Access source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to Oracle destination database.

Specifying parameters for destination database looks like the same as for source. Usually, it consists of defining connection settings and username/password pairs.

Connect to Oracle target database from DBConvert

NOTE #1: Every DBConvert or DBSync tool has two different databases in its name. That means any specified database from a pair can be set up as a source or destination. Besides, the same type of database may be set up both as a source or destination.

As an example, here is the list of possible migration directions with on-premises databases:

  • Access to Oracle
  • Oracle to Access
  • Access to Access
  • Oracle to Oracle

NOTE #2: Don't be confused by the fact that connections to cloud databases like Amazon RDS, Microsoft Azure SQL, Google Cloud, and Heroku are not explicitly specified in the configuration of a source or destination in the DBConvert / DBSync interface. To connect to Cloud database instances, use the same settings as you do for traditional on-premises databases.

NOTE #3: Your connections to source and target databases stay active until you close DBConvert/ DBSync application or reopen new connections on "source" and "destination" steps.

Read more about the specific source/ destination configurations for different databases.

3. Custoimzation and configuration.

At the next step, you can specify precisely which tables, fields, indices, views you want to transfer to the Oracle destination database. Just check/ uncheck the box in front of each database object you want to convert.

Customize general database/ tables settings. Or set up a particular table , field, index individually when migrating data from Access to Oracle.

Check out our articles about Custoimzation and configuration. for detailed information.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

4. Detection of potential database migration issues. Errors and Warnings

The database typically constrains certain relations on the data that cannot be violated. On the customization step, a smart error checker verifies all possible Data integrity and Referential integrity issues and highlights them, if any, before performing a migration.

DBConvert software to default tries to automatically map database types from the source Access database to the closest equivalent of the target Oracle database types. But you can manually change data types for the whole database globally with "Global mapping" or individually for each field.

Check out Smart error checker. Errors and Warnings for more information.

5. Execution. The final stage of data migration from Access to Oracle

Once you configure source and destination databases for migration in the previous steps, you can start the actual conversion or synchronization process.

Click the "Commit" button to start conversion. Also, here, you can monitor the migtation/ synchronization process.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps Access source and Oracle target database connection settings with other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\oracle2accessPro\oracle2accessPro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications come with a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Just set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.
