We would like to connect MS Access 2012 to a cloud based JD Edwards Enterprise One database to make some reports.  We were sent the following which supposedly has everything we need to connect.  We were also sent a username and password.  How do we connect to the JDE tables?  Thanks!

    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = nicprd)
    )
  )

@slightwv, JDE does you an Oracle Database . Probably need to switch it back. See: White paper: Oracle JD Edwards Cloud Computing - Choosing a Deployment Strategy That Fits (PDF)


TEKDEVSC,

You should be able to open an ADO recordset to the remote Oracle JDE table.

***Note: The above example use a DSN. You can do this DSN-less with the connection string they provided you.

For information on the connection string  to on Oracle database see:

Also see this docs.oracle.com article: Connecting to Oracle Database

You may also need to install the ODBC drivers for the database. I have not used Oracle databases before but with mySQL, MS SQL, etc I have had to install an ODBC driver before I could connect.

This may be what you need: Oracle10g Provider for OLE DB
