My Company is Running Oracle 7.3.1 with Oracle Financials on it. We are running another instance on Oracle 9i. We have just had problems with 9i. Oracle 7 has been running for years with almost zero problems.

We have to upgrade our system from 7, to 8i or 9i. Seeing that we are running oracle 9i with problems we are seriously thinking about downgrading our 9i DB to 8i. Should or shouldn't we and why?

Thanx for your input
