Can someone point me in the right direction.

is there a way to link oracle to query data on an AS400 via something like ODBC.

The conditions are that there is no need to make any program installations or changes to the as400, if there is some sort of middleware solution that can work for me.

I would only need access to do select statements as we will not be updating any data

What is the data on the AS400 contained in?

Are you asking how to link a local Oracle database to an Oracle database on an AS400?

If so, database links:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e26088/statements_5005.htm

If not, please clarify.

The AS400 native database fully supports ODBC.  What platform is Oracle running on?  There are ODBC drivers for windows and linux.

What you are after is Oracle Hetergenous Services:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e25494/ds_concepts001.htm#i1007606

This allows you to connect Oracle to non-Oracle databases.
