You don't specify which version of Delphi or InstallShield you're trying to use, nor what type of database you are using or if you need the BDE.
However, using D5 Enterprise and the version of Installshield that ships with that, it's very simple.

Just run InstallShield and go through all the steps CAREFULLY. This allows to to package the BDE and any files you need for you application (including database files). It also allows you to specify BDE Alias's as well.

To really get it right I suggest you practice a lot, and test each set-up attempt on a freshly installed PC, otherwise you risk mistakes. When I first tried this I had to do many attempts to learn how the Installshield app works.

If you need specific advice, let me know.

never doe it with an Oracle DB but several times with SQL Server.

Run the InstallShield Wizzard and follow the directions very carefully, you should find it self explanetory.
If not, ask some specific questions, and I'll see how I can help.
