Yes, before writing the mail I had this confusion but as my max_packet_allowed was default to 16M I couldn't have been able to continue with 28M dump from Oracle. Now that I have the schema in MySQL already. What can I do to get data only from Oracle's DB? There are lots of software tools out there but I want to learn it from the base. I cant afford to buy any software either. > > -- > Postgresql & php tutorials > http://www.designmagick.com/ > >
