I have Oracle 8i client and long with ODBC 8i on the user machine. I want to import Oracle 9i client and ODBC on the same machine which will also point to the network. the quesiton here is how can I do the import on ODBC so it won't overwrite the 8i client. I need to keep 8i ODBC for some of the old appl we had.
Are you trying to install a second Oracle Client on you machine? You can have two clients installed on the same machine as long as you install them into different Oracle homes. Each Oracle home will be able to have its own ODBC driver installed in it. Just make sure that both homes are in the path.
