Convert Oracle to Access.

Use our powerful database migration tools to convert and synchronize data from Oracle to Access files effortlessly and reliably!

Microsoft Access is really intended for small, standalone databases. On the contrary, Oracle is an enterprise database solution for large volumes of data. But there may still be situations when you need to move or synchronize data from Oracle to MS Access. For example, calculations are made in Oracle and you need to provide some data to your clients with MS Access. You might also want to upload a changed dataset to Oracle or sync Access data with Oracle server on the fly.

Our software has a familiar tree-view representation of your target databases and many useful settings to customize your databases.

Different types of synchronization are also available for keeping your databases up-to-date.

Synchronization and conversion processes can be scheduled and launched automatically to execute migration jobs. Scheduler works as a service, so you don’t need to start the application manually every time.

Using Oracle to Access 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 Oracle source database.

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

Connect to Oracle source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to Access 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 Access 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:

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

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 Access 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 Oracle to Access.

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 Oracle database to the closest equivalent of the target Access 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 Oracle to Access

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 Oracle source and Access 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.
