I am trying to access an Oracle 7 remote database through VB. I'm pretty new to ODBC and OCI and such. I'm not even sure which names to use from the TSNAMES.ORA file! What is the most efficient way of accessing remotely, and can I get some sample code ? (please...)  :-(

Try this codes to connect to your db

From the project menu, choose references then choose RDO 2.0

Public m_rdoConn as rdoConnection
Public m_rdoErr as rdoError
Public m_rdoResult as rdoResultset
Public m_rdoEnv as rdoEnvironment
Public m_rdoCol as rdoColumn

Set m_rdoEnv = rdoEnvironments(0)
m_rdoEnv.CursorDriver = rdUseOdbc
Set m_rdoConn = m_rdoEnv.OpenConnection(dsname:'="test",prompt:=rdDriverComplete,

Before coding these codes, go to control panel, odbc, system dsn , add
Choose oracle, type in dsn name as test for this case . point the database to the server ....
