I had the following connection string

<add name="somename"  connectionString="Data Source=somename;
         USER ID = somename;
         PASSWORD = somename" providerName="Oracle.DataAccess.Client" />

Open in new window


After running program I got an error stating OLEDB connection needs a provider string, Then  I modified the string as

<add name="somename"  provider="OraOLEDB.Oracle" connectionString="Data Source=somename;
         USER ID = somename;
         PASSWORD = somename" providerName="Oracle.DataAccess.Client" />

Open in new window

Then got the error : The provider attribute is not allowed?

Can anyone please help me in resolving the issue?

Thanks,
D.

I believe Oracle.DataAccess.Client is strictly for ODP.Net and .Net applications.

OLEDB is a different data access provider.

Which one is the application using?

Have you taken a look here:
https://www.connectionstrings.com/oracle/


If you are using ODP.Net, it typically comes with several samples that show you everything you need.
