You have outdated odbc drivers and you should download and install updated drivers from microsoft, You should download the full set of odbc drivers if you need the oracle drivers. Here is the driver location.

I believe that this update will solve your problem.
It is the newest download available for odbc and also fixes some year 2000 problems.
