Hi All,

ODBC - call failed
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQL Set ConnectAttr failed (#0)[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed(#0)[Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle] Invalid connection string attribute (#0)

How have you connected to the database, linked tables or through code?

I haven't linked the databases. But I want to. I'm guessing that it would have to be done using code. The Oracle dbase runs a UNIX shell.

So do you get this error when you try to link or when you create the DSN?
If the DSN creates successfully does it test OK?

The best way is to go with DSNless connections if possible using some simple code.

The DSN is created successfully and it does connect successfully I tested it in Net8 easy config. I'm getting the error when I try to link. I don't think I will be able to connect DSNless the two Dbases must be linked.

Cheers to you,
Jorge

If you dont use the Oracle ODBC driver (MS is default) then use that, you can get it from Oracle.
