Any help is greatly appreciated.

  It's the same like any database that has OleDb drivers

Here's a sample, not tested cuz i don't have oracle installed in my current computer, but this should help you

OleDbConnection cn = new OleDbConnection("provider=msdaora;user
id=scott;password=tiger;data source=OraServer;");

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("Select * from emp",cn);

OleDbReader dr;

dr = cmd.ExecuteReader;

// place ur code
