Need sample of code accessing Oracle database with either ADO or BDE components

I use ADO to access a MS/SQL database
I need now to acces an Oracle (9) database
A couple of connection samples and queries syntax with ADO will be what I am looking for
Also, what do I have to install on my PC (Oracle layer) ?

 Hi!

1)You will have to install Oracle Client on each PC where you want your application to be run.

2)You will  have to configure the oracle client on each client computer using the Net Configuration Assistant for connecting to the Oracle Database Server. select "Local Net service Name Configuration" in the assistant wizard.

3)Connect to the database using TADOConnection as follows
a)Select "Oracle Provider for OLEDB" on the provider Tab of Adoconnection
b)In the Data Source enter the service name created in step 2
c)Enter the username and password and test the connection.

    Hi!

If you don't have Oracle installed on the same computer you are developing on
then
1 you should download and install the Oracle Client.
2 Setup an ODBC connection to the database
3 and connect to the database using TADOConnection with the ODBC name you choose.

Everything else should be the same (that's if you follow the ANSI92/99 SQL standard in
your queries.
