RE: connecting Oracle to SQL Server

There are some free drivers available TDS is one I believe for Linux.
 
Data direct will give you a 15 day trial then you have to cough up the $$
I didn't have any issues with the TDS driver for 32 bit in the past.
 
HS works fairly well depending what you want to do.
 
If you are on 64 bit you need to use dg4odbc for HS and that works with 10g 
upward.
For 10G you need to install the 11G gateway.
 
You might want to play with DTS from the Sql Server side of things as well.  I 
haven't used it but we do use it at work and it works very well.

The gateway product costs extra.
 
HS or generic connectivity requires the use of an ODBC driver for the database 
server platform designed to access SQL Server.  The only platform I believe 
that comes with such a driver is Windows so extra cost is probably required 
unless you are capable of writing your own ODBC program.
 
On the other hand the Oracle client for Windows is free and MS on 32 bit 
systems provides ODBC/OLE drivers to Oracle.  For 64 bit Windows you need the 
Oracle 64 bit OLE driver.  Pushing and pulling from the SQL Server side is free.

Are they extra costs options?

Look into Generic Connectivity and Heterogeneous Services on metalink.  Also 
the Oracle product: Transparent Open Gateway.

Isn't possible to access a SQL Server database from within an Oracle database.  
If true, can someone point me in the right direction.
