omarmf,

I think the key thing is to be able to connect to the database. Once you have done this you can then use styandard SQL.


'In a module put the following line:
Public myDB As ADODB.Connection

'In a function to connect to the database:
    Set myDB = New ADODB.Connection
    With myDB
        .ConnectionString = "UID=scott;PWD=tiger;DRIVER={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};SERVER=myTNSName;"
        .Open
    End With


'In a function to update a table on the database:

Dim MySet as ADODB.Recordset
Set MySet = New ADODB.Recordset
myDB.Execute "Update Table1 Set field1 = 'A' where field2 = #XYZ'" , , adExecuteNoRecords

I used to put a provider there, not sure if omit the provider will it still work?


...
.ConnectionString = "Provider=MSDASQL;DRIVER={Microsoft ODBC for ORACLE};UID=scott;PWD=tiger;Server=myTNSName"
...



Other methods using of ConnectionString for Oracle can be found at links below:
