Hi,

Iam having Public synonym for DBLINK remote database ,
When i execute a query iam getting the following error...
[Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-02041: client database did not begin a transaction.
I use ADO - 2.1 , Oracle 8.1.7 , Vb 6.0


Code
  Set cm.ActiveConnection = GetConnection
    cm.CommandText = "SELECT RTRIM(agt_cd) agt_cd  FROM pragent ORDER BY agt_name"
    Set GetAllAgentCodes = cm.Execute

(PRAGENT table is synonym for remote database table)

Can you help to solve ??????
Thanks...

Not quite sure what you want to have returned, but try one of the following:

SELECT RTRIM(agt_cd) AS agt_cd  FROM pragent ORDER BY agt_name

OR

SELECT RTRIM(agt_cd), agt_cd  FROM pragent ORDER BY agt_name

Login to your database and see if the select statement runs.  Is your get connection code actually working?

try:

cm.CommandText = "SELECT RTRIM(agt_cd) agt_cd  FROM pragent@DBLINK_NAME ORDER BY agt_name"

replacing DBLINK_NAME with the name of the database link, which I think must also have a public synonym.

Consider the following select statement using a dblink: select * from scott.emp@orcl;
Using the Oracle OLE DB Provider returns ORA-02041 In SQL Plus the error is not encountered.

In connection string attributes must set DistribTx=0 which disables distributed transactions. This can also be set in the registry. Default registry setting is 1 or enabled. Can be found in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Oracle\Oledb. Note: If DistribTx is not in the registry then Oracle Provider for Ole DB 8.1.6.1.0 or higher was not installed.
