ADO connectstring problem, Openlink ODBC to Oracle

I have setup an OPENLINK ODBC connection to ORACLE:
Datasource Name: PRODUCTION
Provider Type: Oracle PimsP
Provider Protocal: TCP/IP
Provider Hostname:pims

The VB code is as follows:

Dim connADO As ADODB.Connection
Set connADO = New ADODB.Connection

connADO.ConnectionString = "driver={OpenLink for Win32};server={Oracle PimsP};UID=pims;PWD=lppepg12;database=pims"

connADO.Open

I get an overflow error 6.

These are my early painly ADO days and any recommendations as to what might be wrong will be gratefully received.  I have tried many different combinations!!

Thanks in advance

The ODBC driver DSN should take care of the data base/server details, and the connection string would look something like this:-

DSN=PRODUCTION;UID=pims;PWD=lppepg12
