Step 1 of 7. Select Conversion Mode

Specify how to convert Oracle database into PostgreSQL format:
  • Move to PostgreSQL server directly - use this approach to export the contents of the source database into database on the target PostgreSQL server. You need PostgreSQL server launched and also necessary privileges to write into database on the target server. See Connect to PostgreSQL Server section for related information.
  • Export into script file - use this approach to perform deferred conversion and get more control over the process. Following this way, the program stores the data into a local script file instead of moving it to PostgreSQL server directly. The resulting file contains SQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. See Import PostgreSQL script files article for related information.
