Connecting to oracle under two different uid's

Using ODBC ver2 to connect to an Oracle 7.3 database I get an error if I connect as a second user name, even if it is
a different database object. I can connect to two different
oracle databases without a problem.  I am using VB4 and the
standard database object.  Is there a way to dissconnect the
first session or something.  My code looks something like this:

dim db1 as database, db2 as database, rs as recordset

set db = opendatabase("MyDSn",false,true,"ODBC;uid=user1;pwd=pwd1")
set rs = db.openrecordset(sql,dbopensnapshot,dbsqlpassthrough)
opendatabase("MyDSn",false,true,"ODBC;uid=user2;pwd=pwd2")
set rs = db.openrecordset(sql2,dbopensnapshot,dbsqlpassthrough)

The error happens on the last line. If I reverse the order it is always the latter one that fails.

Try creating another Workspace object, and open the other database in that Workspace.

Maybe you just left it out but you will get an error on the second opendatabase because you are not setting an object equal to it.

Also have you tried looking at Oracle Objects for OLE?  That is what I use here and I have never had any problems with Oracle and Visual Basic.

If you need examples of using Oracle Objects for OLE just let me know as I do have a seperated BAS file that I use to do anything in Oracle.
