Hi,

We have a Windows 2000 advanced with service pack 4 installed on it.  In addition to this we have also installed Oracle 9iAS Release 2 version 9.2.0.1.0 and added the patch set 9.2.0.4.0.  We have installed MDAC 2.7 on the server as well. We are trying to connect to the oracle database using MSDAORA provider but the connection fails.  The error message displayed is as follows:
Run time error '-2147467259' (80004005)
Oracle error occured but error message could not be retreived from oracle.

Appreciate if you could please let me know how to go about this problem.

did you try using SQLPLUS connecting to Oracle backend?

if MSDAORA does not work, try Oracle ODBC driver?

It works with Oracle ODBC driver, but the issue is with Microsoft OLE DB driver for Oracle.

SQLPLUS connecting to Oracle is working.

This is an answer from Forum on Metalink:

Try to use the "Provider=Oracle.OraDB" instead. The MSDAORA.1 provider does not work with Oracle Client9.
