Hello,

Any advice or suggestion on what tool or software (3rd party) i can use to replace BMC fast unload? i have several scripts running using it but with upgrade in oracle, sometimes i am having problem with the software (compatibility i guess). i learned that BMC fast unload is no longer supported so i am looking for a solution. I am new to the team and only familiar with running queries/sql. Just excited and wanted to know if their is a better or best software to replace the one used in scripts. hoping something that wont take much effort or has minor impact to scripts.

Appreciate any advice/help you can provide.

I'm not familiar with BMC Fast Unload, but if this is Oracle to Oracle, the DataPump is your natural choice here

But if you need a non-proprietary unload format, maybe take a look at this video
