make a udl and then try this

set conn = server.createobject("adodb.connection")

conn.open "file name = c:\aa.udl"

I hope you know that how we can make a udl.

Happy coding

Try this:

Dim cn
Set cn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
cn.Open "Provider=MSDAORA;Data Source=YourServer;User ID=YourUserID;Password=YourPassword"

Oracles advice is that you should use the microsoft driver for 7 but theirs for 8i.

As I understand it, you also need to make sure that you have the Oracle Client software installed on the machine that will be using this connection.
