How do I allow Microsoft Access 2007 to read a CLOB in an Oracle linked table?

I am migrating an Access 2007 database to an Oracle 10g database as the backend. I am having issues converting an Access memo datatype to the Oracle equivalent, which to my belief would be a CLOB. The access memo data contains data over 4000 characters so a VARCAHR2 will not work in this instance. Access gives an error when trying to read the converted CLOBS.

How can I allow Access to read the data in the Oracle database.

You must use the Oracle ODBC driver (supplier buy Oracle). The Microsoft ODBC supplied driver for Oracle does not work. It can be found in the Oracle Client software - ensure that you use the 32 bit client. - eirther Oracle 10 or 11.1 (not 11.2 as this ODBC driver was not certified for Windows last time I checked).

What error did you get? Can you post this?
