We are using machines for attendance/access control and these machines stores data into access database but my attendance system is developed into oracle Forms9i therefore I want to create a routine, which import data from access database to oracle database on daily basis.

Your urgent reply would be highly appreciated.

V9 Oracle has been unsupported & obsoleted this whole Century.

MS ACCESS using ODBC can connect directly to Oracle database & issue SQL against it.
The details of exactly how this is done is OFF TOPIC for this forum, because Oracle database does not know or care about which "flavor" of client that connects to it.
Any and all activities to satisfy your requirement must be done on the Microsoft side since Oracle accepts data from any INSERT statement.

You can also export your Microsoft Access data to either fixed position or delimited text files and then either use Oracle SQL*Loader to load the data into Oracle tables or, if you can put the text files on your server, you can also use Oracle external tables to access the data in the files and insert it into Oracle tables. I don't know what your situation is, in terms of connectivity, where your data comes from, and how much needs to be automated or manual. A long time ago, I used to receive Microsoft Access mdb files on disks, use Microsoft Access to export the data to text files, then use SQL*Loader to load the data into Oracle 8i tables. I started trying to find a way to automate the process, but found that the source format was unpredictable. They tended to change the order, size, and names of columns, and add new ones. So, each month, I had to review the new format and revise the SQL*Loader control files to load the state data into the county system. If you are loading data daily, then you probably want to automate the entire process. If you upgrade to a current version of Oracle, you can set up things like dbms_scheduler.file_watcher, such that as soon as a text file appears on the server, it is automatically processed.
