Connect to Oracle in SSIS

I have tried to install Oracle Client and now have a few different versions of the 11.2.0 installed. FIrst, I installed the Client components and then I was told to run the run-time components and then was told to run the Administrator setup so I feel I have multiple components installed(or whatever)....Anyway I just want to be able to connect to an Oracle database from SSIS and that's all...Please HELP!!!!!

Ask your Oracle DBA what driver package you need.

If you're using at least Oracle 9i try starting at this Oracle page. It covers what the Oracle ODBC drivers will do and has links to other info you'll maybe need if you're writing .NET programs.

The ODBC download page is here - make sure you get the right one for the machine you're installing onto.

Then, when you've got the right ODBC version installed, you'll be able to select it when setting up a connection in SSIS. In theory all should go as usual after that.

Good luck
