To: Jose Suarez 

I have converted Access to Oracle before and can say yes, it is possible.

Queries: they mostly convert straight to Oracle. There are differences in
wildcards (Oracle uses % whereas Access uses *), and outer-joings.

Reports + Forms: You can keep your reports and forms in Access and use an
ODBC link to the Oracle tables. Otherwise, you have to redo them in Oracle
Developer 2000 from scratch.

Macros: You have to rewrite these from scratch in Oracle

Tables: Create them in Oracle, then link the table in Access and run an
APPEND query in Access.
