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

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,
