Are you referring to ODP.Net?

I've not done it but there is a reference to LINQ and OPD.Net here:  LINQ to Entities

Yes I followed that example and my problem is I cannot drag/drop anything from the database to the entity diagram. What am I missing?

oh I got it now...apparently you can't drag and drop the objects...maybe only with sql server. I thought I did before but that was a couple of years ago. Anyway, you have to right click the edmx and "update model from database".

I've done a fair amount of .Net coding but believe it or not, through the command line compiler.  You just went way over my head...

Interesting..well, I have been away from it for the last 2 years so hopefully it's like riding a bike.
