Hi
I have setup Oracle ODBC connection.
I can get to it in Data connections via Server explorer in Visual Studio and can see all the tables but,
When I try to expand individual tables to see columns etc. I get the following

Input string not in correct format.

Can someone please tell me why this is occurring and how to fix?

PS. - I tried using the Oracle provider and could not see any tables under this at all.

Do you have sufficient permissions ?

Try a different username/password.

I am able to do Select statements against the tables and retrieve data back.
From this, I have been able to get the column names.

I have been given Read access to the database.

This could be related to localization issues.
