ODBC Direct, Oracle, with Oracle's ODBC Driver

All,

I am attempting to use ODBC Direct to hit the oracle database.  Everything works correctly for the first recordset opened, and then when I attempt to open another recordset (whether or not the first one is closed), the program hangs.  The ODBC Direct calls are correct (I open a workspace and then a connection).  It doesn't matter if I call the queries ASYCH or not, it still hangs..

Any suggestions?

If I read your question correctly, are you opening a second workspace (hence a second connection) for the second recordset?
If so, don't.

No...... That's not what I am doing.  I am opening 1 workspace, 1 Connection, many recordsets.

I tried substituting Intersolv's driver, no luck.  I wrote a little test program using ODBC Direct on 1 form, RDO ont he other.  RDO works perfectly, ODBC direct hangs

anthonyc,

Try to set QueryTimeout property to zero after you open the conneciton.

Example
=======
 Set Cn = Ws.OpenConnection("", dbDriverNoPrompt, False, strConn)
 Cn.QueryTimeout = 0
