data loader cmd line

Hey guys,
Here's what we're trying to do:

Query and send 9 tables from SF backend using the dataloader. This will need to be a nightly job for 9 different tables :user, account, contact, opportunity, opportunitylineitem,opportunitycontactrole, pricebook2, pricebookentry, product2.

If we have a link or url where these 9 tables can be uploaded, how do i do this? I know there is a command line interface but we are not familiar with using a cmd line interface. Our backend is an Oracle 9i and 11i app for our ERP ebusiness suite of modules. There 9 tables will ultimatelty be loaded into production. Please help! we're stuck!

Thanks again,


You just need to look at the documentation and examples in this forum.  There is a bit of a tedious learning curve using the command line data loading tool but it works as advertised. 

You should start with the GUI based tool first then use the config files for the command line version.  FWIW, I've used the command line version in Windows and Liniux.
