    I have been using both the Sybase and Oracle SSMA tools and I love them!  I did find an issue with the 4.2 Sybase SSMA.  How do I report the bug to Microsoft?

    @Ram: Have a look at the videos in blogs.msdn.com/…/mysql-to-sql-server-2008-migration-workshop-video.aspx. Though they are for MySQL, SSMA product for Oracle is similar. If you have any questions feel free to email us at ssmahelp at microsoft.com.

  5. I am migrating Data base from Oracle DB to SQL by using SSMA (SQL Server Migration assistance for Oracle) tool but after completion convert schema I getting errors on Indexes . can you please help me any one

    error :o2ss0041,o2ss0050,o2ss0083

    hi Faith4ax,

    I think this is because some udts or user define functions or producres have no conversion. SSMA didn't recognize some user define identifier.

    If you can support detail errors,I think I can better understand your errors.

    We are migrating Oracle to SQL.  We manage to migrate some tables but others don't work.  We beleive the problem came from when Column date in Oracle is Number(*,*).  We tried to change the type mapping with almost every combination but it's always the same error: ORA-00905: missing keyword.

    What should we do ?
