Adding a little to that, if your data and processing requirements are
"small" enough, use XE on your local system. See the docs for the
limitations. Besides its own tools, it is a full Oracle environment
so you can grab the data in several ways depending on how much access
you have to the server. I bet your ODBC access definition has enough
information to make a dblink or tnsnames, if you can't just log onto
the server and export. And if you are using ODBC, I suspect your
requirements are "small" enough.

-- is bogus.
