Hi Diane,
 I ran across your 2002 letter on the Internet and was curious if you 
ever found the script files for converting the ITIS database to Oracle?  
I am facing the same task.  I have found directions for converting it to 
MySQL but was hoping that maybe the ORACLE conversion was available.
Thank you for reading my letter and any advice you can give on this matter.
Sincerely,
Nancy E. Roberson

Hi, I am not sure if this is the right newsgroup or not... so apologize 
in advance if it is not! I am working on a project to catalog several 
collections of scientific data. I plan on using the taxonomy database 
from ITIS (Integrated Taxonomic Information System) as the taxa 
reference for this database and have downloaded the full database in 
Informix format from their site. My question is - does anybody have the 
script files for converting this database to Oracle? I emailed ITIS and 
they said they know it has been done but could not give me any 
references to people who have done it. Thanks for any advice, Dina
