I had already install Oracle 8 Client for Application User as well as Delphi 4 Client/Server Suite.

When I tried to connect to Oracle 8 in the BDS Administrator, I had received a error message "Cannot load an IDAPI service library. File: SQLORA8.DLL ". Why this happened and how can I solve this problem ?

"...Oracle 8 server can use new Net8 server and SQL*Net 2.3 server as listener.
                  Also client must be the listener server's client (SQL*Net client for SQL*Net
                  server & Net8 client for Net8 server you must know which listener is the one
                  you use.

                  If you use Net8 server (it's default for the installation of database) you
                  must install Net8 client and change vendor init parameter to Ora8xx.dll. xx
                  is dependent to Oracle version (if beta is must be 02. Else 03). look for
                  ora8xx.dll in the oraclehome\bin directory and change vendor init parameter
                  to this to connect the server.

                  If you use SQL*Net server (optionally you can install for support oracle 7
                  clients) you must use SQL*Net client to connect the server & change the
                  vendor init parameter to ora7x.dll or orant7x.dll. the rest is same for
                  SQL*Net as i described above for Net8

with Delphi Client Server, if you are using native driver then in the BDE\Configuration\ORACLE\ write VENDOR INIT=ORA803.DLL

with Delphi Client Server, if you are using native driver then in the BDE\Configuration\ORACLE\ write      DLL32=SQLORA32.DLL
This file comes with Delphi.

It depends on what version of Oracle you have, if you have Oracle 8.03, then this ORA803.DLL comes with Oracle. You don't need to copy any files, they are there already.

You should also configure the Oracle. Ask your Oracle DBA.
