ODBC Connectivity

Hi everyone,
I am getting the following error while configuring the Microsoft ODBC for Oracle in win98.
"The oracle(tm) or networking components were not found.These components are supplied by Oracle Corporation and are a part of the Oracle version 7.3(or greater) client software installation. You will be unable to use this driver untill these components are installed"

I have tried configuring it after installing the oracle 7.3 components ,SQL *net components,but all in vain.
Please help urgently on this issue

Regards
Ahmer

You need Oracle Client software, more precisely Oracle*Net, because you cannot access Oracle databases through ODBC directly as you can with JDBC.

When you installed the 7.3 sqlnet, did you specifically include an oracle protocol adapter? it wont install one unless you specifically ask it to, so you get sqlnet, but it cant talk to your network.

If you have, you need to break the problem down a bit -
using just the oracle client, try to tnsping your target database
then try connecting from sqlplus
then look at odbc

let us know how far you get, and post any errors along the way.

Sounds like you have a corrupt / incomplete installation.
If possible, remove the 7.3 home, and reinstall it
