We are trying to coonect VB4 to Oracle using 16-bit ODBC.  Standard code does not work.  Anybody have any ideas?  Do we have to use WIN95 APIs or is there standard way to get thru?

You can use Oracle Objects for OLE which should be on the Client CDs with plenty of help.

I can also give some examples here, just let me know after installing Oracle Objects for OLE if you need examples, but the help that comes with it is pretty good.

We need to use ODBC. Oracle objects for ole is too slow.

Hope this helps: And what "standard way" do you use?


Dim lDB as database
Dim lRS as recordset
Dim I as integer

   Set lDB = Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("", False, False, "ODBC;")
   Set lRS = lDB.OpenRecordSet("SELECT * FROM yourtable", dbOpenDynaset, dbSQLPassThrough
Debug.Print "Contents of your query:"
While not lRS.EOF
  For I = 0 to lRS.Fields.Count - 1
  Debug.Print lRS.Fields(I)
  Next I
  lRS.MoveNext

Oracle objects for OLE is no slower than ODBC.
