    Hello.

    I've saved a SQL instructions file from Oracle's Querry Builder. I was
    wondering if it was possible in any way to import those instructions
    into a Ms Access query ?

    Thanks,

    Marc-André.

    Not "import" but if you have them in text form, you should be able to copy
    and paste them into the SQL Property of an Access Query. Just don't expect
    them to work, because all DB's have their own "dialect" of Standard SQL, so
    you will likely have to modify before you get it working. IIRC, Oracle is
    known for having some "extensions" to SQL, and Jet certainly has some
    differences.

    They may not work directly, there may be some syntax changes you need to
    make. I haven't used Oracle, so I don't know. The easiest way to import them
    may be to open the Access query in SQL view and copy and paste the SQL text
    of the Oracle query.

    You may come closer to being able to use them without syntax changes if you
    go to Tools|Options|Tables/Queries tab and check the box for using SQL
    Server Compatible Syntax. However, if you've created other queries in the
    database already, doing this may require syntax changes in those.
