I am looking to set up a connection from my CRM to an Oracle database.
I have installed the Oracle Client on the CRM Server but an struggling with the connection string. Can anybody advise me on the syntax please?

This is what I am trying:
Server=;database=dbname;uid=dbowner;pwd=password;driver=Microsoft ODBC for Oracle

Getting this error:
ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

Open in new window

The ODBC driver is installed on the CRM server and I am using the database name defined in thr tnsnames.ora.

Thank you.
