No, you cannot:

SQL> CREATE DATABASE LINK ora7link CONNECT TO scott IDENTIFIED BY tiger
  2          USING 'orcl.world';

Database link created.

SQL>
SQL> SELECT * FROM dual@ora7link;
SELECT * FROM dual@ora7link
                   *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-24439: Connections to Oracle7 server are no longer supported
ORA-02063: preceding line from ORA7LINK


Best regards.

worked on it for weeks - appeals to Oracle OTN etc etc fell on deaf ears. Have ended up re-engineering the interface such that all scripts etc run from the Oracle 7 instance - which is allowed.

So data is nowpulled and pushed to the and from the 9i under the control of the 7.

A real pain!

Try using an 8i 'stepping stone' database - link the 7 to 8, and then the 9 to 8. Build snapshots/views etc as necessary.

Note - just because on dbV9 you will be able to select * from tab@dbV8 which in turn is a synonym for select * from tab@dbV7 doesnt mean that you can create views/snapshots as easy !

Its a pain, but it is doable
