    not gonnahappen i guess, either unload your data to a csv file and use sql loader or external tables or set up links between the two databases

    You can use a SQL Server Transparent gateway. You can use MTS to unload your data from SQL Server and then load it with SQL Loader. If there isn't a lot of data, you can create odbc connections to each database, then link the tables from both into an Access database and directly copy them.

    There are probably a few other options as well.
