    ODBC Problem -

    I'm having Oracle 8.1.6 server. Oracle Client 8.1.6 works fine with this when installed on any client machine but when i try to connect it thro' microsoft data link using any dsn it gives error. hence, i cannot connect thro' any frontend. I've tried 8.1.5 , 7.3 but still the problem is unresolvable. sometimes it works on 7.3 ( few machines ). i'm having win95 nodes and nt server

    while using Oracle ODBC driver gives error -

    Microsoft Data Link Error - Test connection failed because error in initializing provider. Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 1114 ( Oracle ODBC Driver )

    while using Miscrosoft ODBC for Oracle gives error -

    OCI.dll one of the library could not be found. Test connection failed.

    Can any one tell me whats happening

    I have passed through ODBC problems before , you may change to $ORACLE_HOME/ODBC ,, you will find files concerning ODBC ,, open file named : ODBCRelnotes.wri ,, read it ,, you will find information about ODBC compitability between Server / Client / OS / Development tool .

    Try both Oracle and Microsoft ODBC Drivers , remember that ODBC can not run Oracle Packages.

    Good Luck
