Oracle Data Type Conversions

Feature Availability: This feature is available in Cloud Dataprep Premium by TRIFACTA® INC.

NOTE: The Cloud Dataprep data types listed in this page reflect the raw data type of the converted column. Depending on the contents of the column, the Transformer Page may re-infer a different data type, when a dataset using this type of source is loaded.

NOTE: Dots (.) in the names of Oracle tables or table columns are not supported.
