Which is more useful .. ?

I use Oracle8 Server.

And Oracle8 Client in client (win98).

Which is more useful and faster...?

Oracle8 supports Oracle8 ODBC and OLE..

I don't know what method is good for database access under server/client system and using VB...

Please give me your advice..!

I prefer ODBC because it works better for what i do but OLE is also a great way!!!  I would go with OLE because it is much more general.

Today I'm not which is faster but there is a thing for sure is that OLE DB is being improved about every month or 2.

So if not higher performance today, tomorrow will surely be!
Around 1993 when I was using VB3, Oracle stated that Oracle Objects for OLE was about 400% faster than ODBC. These days, they just say it is "high performance". There are fewer layers to go through than ODBC -- search for OLE on Oracle's web site for a diagram.
