Hello experts. I am trying to access data from an Oracle database by way of ODBC. My question is: What client software is best for getting all that is required to simply establish an ODBC connection to an Oracle database. I will have to install this on other users' machines, so I am looking for the client option that has the smallest footprint.

My suggestion would be instant client.  That should have the smallest footprint.

Just be aware that in addition to the base download, you need the ODBC download to get the ODBC access.
