Hi
I have an ASP.NET website which works on a server but not on my machine. (I just copied the code from the server to my machine)

I get the error "ORA-12504: TNS:listener was not given the SERVICE_NAME in CONNECT_DATA"

It seems to happen on the line
Dim myConnection As New OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)

where connectionstring is
"Provider=MSDAORA;User ID=INV_ROUT;password=xxx;Data Source=B733"

Any ideas?
Thanks
