Oracle to SQL Server Using SSMA - O2SS0083 Unresolved identifier RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Trying to migrate Oracle db to SQL Server using SSMA V5.2, but getting several errors:


    SSMA error messages:

    O2SS0083: Identifier DBMs_SQL.OPEN_CURSOR cannot be converted because it was not resolved.

    SET @curHandler = DBMS_SQL.OPEN_CURSOR


    This error goes on for DBMS_SQL.PARSE,  DBMS_SQL.EXECUTE, and DBMS_SQL.CLOSE_CURSOR. What are the SQL server equivalent of these Oracle operations?

     Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,

  • Hello,

    Those operations belong to cursors in Oracle. You will find examples of cursors in T-SQL on the following resources:



    You will find in these resources the equivalent of each Oracle operation.

    Hope this helps

  • Thank you Alberto!

    In SSMA, after creating report, it shows both Oracle SQL code and SQL Server conversion code side by side, you can copy/save the Oracle source code nicely, but  how do you copy/save the SQL Server side conversion code to a text file without the line number in front of each line? I've tried several ways, still couldn't get a clean copy of the code. Does any one know how?
