I am trying to open a connection to oracle database using following connection string:
cnstr = "Provider=ORAOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=primedb;User ID=" & txtUserName.Text & ";Password=" & txtPassword.Text & ";"
at the following line:
cn.open cnstr
it gives "Run-time Error 91"
the connection variable is set in general section as "Dim cn as new adodb.connection"
but if i provide the user name and password as hard coded it works fine e.g.
cnstr = "Provider=ORAOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=primedb;User ID=raajaindra;Password=mypassword;"
what could be the reason and the solution.

are you sure txtUserName.text and txtPassword.text contains the correct values?

>>are you sure txtUserName.text and txtPassword.text contains the correct values?
further adding to it...if it contains the correct value then try the following......

dim IntermediateString as string

IntermediateString= "Provider=ORAOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=primedb;User ID=raajaindra;Password=mypassword;"
cnstr =IntermediateString

If you perform this, what is displayed ?

cnstr = "Provider=ORAOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=primedb;User ID=" & txtUserName.Text & ";Password=" & txtPassword.Text & ";"
msgbox cnstr

cnstr = "Provider=ORAOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=primedb;User ID='" & txtUserName.Text & "';Password='" & txtPassword.Text & "';"

Your cn object is not instantiated (no NEW have been used). How is cn is disclared? It should look like this:

dim cn as new adodb.connection

Thanks to you all nice guys. The problem was solved. Actually my mistake. I was giving wrong data source.
But now I'm struglling with another. I complied the application with P&DW and when I installed it on another computer, it refused to run with error "Run-time error 3706". Somewhere on net I was suggested to install MDAC and VB6SP5. I installed that too, but the problem persists.

Can anybody give some good solution to this problem.

you need to have MDAC_TYP.EXE in your package. Do you have it?
