This my first time to try out this.

I have opened the connection to an oracle database using the code below.

  Dim oradb As String = "Data Source=(DESCRIPTION=" _
               + "(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=xxxxx)(PORT=1521)))" _
               + "(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVER=DEDICATED)(SERVICE_NAME=yyyy)));" _
               + "User Id=uname;Password=pw;"
        Dim conn As New OracleConnection(oradb) ' VB.NET
        conn.Open()

and it is successful.

I want to read the views. but I have no idea.

I have been using like the code below to read data in the PLSQL. where I am told  "mim_ADHOC" is a schema.


select * from mim_ADHOC.vw_marketing_datamart where smonth = 201312;

Help and thank you
