    Hi,
    I'm trying to connect to an oracle8 database using oracle 8i net 8 assitant but I get an error message saying that the service name mentioned in the connect descriptor is invalid. Can you help me resolve this problem.

    Thanks.

    The test did not succeed.
    ORA-12514: TNS:listener could not resolve SERVICE_NAME given in connect descriptor

    There may be an error in the fields entered,
    or the server may not be ready for a connection.

    Take Programs --> Net8 Configuration Assistant --> add --> local net8 service name configuration --> name of the service(say xyz.world) --> port #(1521,default) --> test --> finish

    Thats will reflect in your tnsnames.ora

    You can use that service name(xyz) which you hjave created thru net8 configuration assistant as connect_string for database connection.

    Example: sqlplus system/manager@xyz

    I don't know what you are trying to do, this is what you supposed to do to create a service name.
