We are trying to use CR v11 on Windows XP Professional. Win XP is not delivered with and ODBC driver for Oracle 9i to which we want to link CR v11. Can you suggest where I might get one?

    Accepted Solution

    Have you already installed the Oracle client?  If not, you'll need to do that before the ODBC driver will work.

    If you go to the Oracle Technology Network (OTN), you can download the Oracle client.  If you are just trying to connect to a 9i database, you can download and use the 10.2 Oracle client. You can download the client which is ~450 MB in size.  When you do the installation, I'd suggest doing a custom install and verifying that the Windows Interfaces are being installed-- that includes the Oracle ODBC driver but it's not generally a default part of the client installation.
