Function:
Function Get_Id
      
            
      Dim objConn
      Dim objRecordset
      Dim strSQL

      Set objConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      Set objRecordset = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")


  objConnectOracleReuse.ConnectionString = "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle; Data Source=(DESCRIPTION=(CID=GTU_APP)"  & _
               "(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=myHostName)(PORT=port)))" & _
               "(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=sid)(SERVER=DEDICATED))); User Id=userId; Password=pwswrd;"

  strSQL = "SELECT MAX(COLUMN_NAME) AS VALUE FROM TABLE_NAME"
      

      objConn.Open
      objRecordset.Open strSQL,objConn
      
      Dim obj
      obj =  objRecordset.fields.item("VALUE")

      Msgbox obj

port
should be 1521

sid
should be the name of the Oracle instance

Where are these values assigned?
