I know that this question was posed some time back and that you must have completed this task by now - but I find that I myself is undertaking the same task using Delphi 5 and Oracle 8.1i (under 8.0 compatability).

I did click on the previous response but found that the answer was not available. If there is still interest then I can complete a how to - but the brief answer is that I connected to oracle enterprise server on another machine using BDE and I have also used ODBC via BDE. There are other examples of linking using ADO.

If anyone is still interested I can post details - I have also performed same thing with 9.0 as well. Does this answer require an update for 2005 I wonder?

Best Regards

Hello Ashley

  I used Delphi 5/6 with Oracle 8i before, and it worked fine, now I'm using Delphi 7 with oracle 8i, and happy with this

I used BDE/ADO/DbExpress but now I'm using ODAC(Oracle direct access components) and the last one is the best method to use when you would like to work with Oracle

which problems do you have?

also if you post this question as new question, you will benefit from more answers from other experts, there are other than me working with Delphi and oracle

also there's no need to upgrade to Delphi 2005 for this reason, if you don't need the features in D2005, then you don't have to pay for it, Dephi 5 should handle your work very fine

Regards,
Mohammed
