Native Oracle Connection to Oracle 8 from Crystal Report

Posted on 2005-05-11
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
I have a oracle 8 database and a report that works fine using the ODBC connection provided by crystal reports.

1) When I try to use the Native connection it says

ORA-01023: Cursor context not found (Invalid cursor number)

2) If I try to Convert the database driver of the report (wich was created using ODBC), the only Oracle "To:" (destination) DLL that shows is pdsora7.dll

I suspect that I should use p2sora8.dll but it is not present on my system (pdsora.dll wich appears in the convert database driver options in not present neither) only p2sora7.dll is.

What should I do to connect the report using Native Oracle Connection?

    I downloaded the file, installed it and the reports worked fine. The dll it installed was p2sora7.dll (it showed in the installation configuration program).

    Shouldn´t it be p2sora8.dll?
