  • Hi ManOfSteel75,

    There are two versions of the Import and Export Data wizard: 32-bit and 64-bit.

    You need to use a version of it that matches 32-bit or 64-bit Oracle OLEDB provider you have installed.

  • Hi ManOfSteel75,


    As mentioned by Yitzhak, there are two versions of the Import and Export Data wizard: 32-bit and 64-bit.  Which version of the import and export wizard to use depends on the version of your oracle client.  Import and Export Data wizard on ssms is 32-bit. And you can find 64-bit from the start menu bar:
