datatype mapping for columns from oracle


hi all,

my Data Source View connects to an Oracle database via Oracle Provider for OLE DB,

and there is a dimensional table named DIM_CITY, and one of its columns , city_id has the integer oracle type.

if i directly add this table as a table to my DSV, the datatype of city_id in DSV would be System.Int64, which i think is appropriate. if i use it from within a named query(SELECT a.*,b.province_name  FROM dim_city left join dim_province b on a.province_id=b.province_id), then the datatype of city_id is System.Int32, which causes troubles as i can NOT add relationships when city_ids in other tables are of type of System.Int64.


any suggestions will be appreciated.

datatype tranformation issue in oracle to sql 2008 migration using SSIS


Hello friends

I am doing oracle to SQL2008 R2 migration and i want to use SSIS.

Oracle has mainly three datatypes DATE, VARCHAR2 and number. 

I tried without using the transformation it worked but the datatypes like date did not changed to datetime in sql server, even the number datatype remain same.

secondly while doing very first time i got very weired name of the table on sql side. 

Instead of going to dbo schema it shows the name like tom\myname.A_RETURNS.

So how can i resolve both the datatype and naming issue?

Thanks in advance..

ASP.Net connect to Oracle.


 We have an application which uses  'System.Data.OracleClient'. On the box it was developed we can change the TNSNAMES.ORA entries to connect to different oracle databases. Moving the code to a  Microsoft Server 2008 box it would appear that the application ignores the TNSNAMES.ORA file. It has cached the first Oracle connection and will now work without any TNSNAMES.ORA file. Where is it getting the connection? We have set tns_admin to point at the TNSNAMES.ORA file. We can tnsping the connection OK.

access Oracle database


Pre- .Net Framework 4.0 supported using Oracle.DataAccess.Client, using Oracle.DataAccess.Types, System.Data.OracleClient, OracleDataReader, OracleConnection. What are the equivalents in .Net Framework 4.0? Does it require any download?

Thank you.

Trying to run a stored procedure from vb code with oracle data provider.



Here is my SP:

create or replace
 Open p_getuserssignon_recordset1 for
 SELECT Distinct(Userid), UserPassword, SecurityLevel, ActiveStatus
WHERE substr(UserId,1,2) <> vUid
Order By UserId;

I would like to run this SP from code and fill a gridview with the result. 

I am not sure how to go about this, as I have found several different examples, other than the one I  think I need.

I am using the oracle data provider and I have an input parameter (vUid, which will equal "zz").

First question. When filling a gridview with a result set from a stored procedure should the recordset OUT be defined as a REFCURSOR (like i did above)? 


Do you have example code as to how to execute the SP and fill a gridview?  I keep trying different variations of code i've found on the internet without any success other than getting more confused.

(I am using VS 2005, VB).

Thank you.



Linq with two databases (oracle and sql server)


i have a problem to bring the data from the oracle (external database) and the sql server together (with similar data). The linq entities are linked to each other. The structure is like different countries with different cities and so on. To display these "non original linq objects" i need to put them into entities (linked to each other). Now i add some of them to my sql database. But for every entity i must check the connection to the other objects i don't want to add and delete them (otherwise linq will add all the connected objects, even those I don't want to add). If this goes wrong the whole input-method crashes. Is there any other possibility, except from checking every single entity and removing unwanted connections, to handle this procedure?
Thanks a lot, preg

DataTable --> Oracle DB



Can someone offer advice on the below? 

I am connecting to an AR Server and pulling out data into a DataSet.  There will be 15 different DataTables within the set.  I would like to find a way to either insert the entire DataSet or each DataTable into an Oracle table.  The Oracle table has the same format as the DataTables I'm creating.

 private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                //Get Credentials
                ID = userNameTextBox.Text;
                PW = passWordTextBox.Text;

                connString = gstrConnectBaseLineStart + "UID=" + ID + ";PWD=" + PW + gstrConnectBaseLineEnd; //Connection string
                conn = new OdbcConnection(connString); //Create Connection
                conn.Open(); //Open Connection
                Console.Write("Connection Successful" + "\n");

                dataAdapter = new OdbcDataAdapter(SQL, conn);
                dataAdapter.Fill(IncidentsDataSet, "dataTableTest");

                DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();
                dataTable = IncidentsDataSet.Tables["dataTableTest"];

                dataGridView1.DataSource = dataTable;

                //Would like to create som

Connecting to Oracle on 64bit OS

We have a 64-bit implementation of MOSS 2007. I recently installed the SharePoint SDK to use the Application Definition Designer to connect to Oracle. I enter the connection string and then I get this:

Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. The problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed.

I have verified that the server contains the 64 bit version of the Oracle client installed both with the instantclient and with system.data.oracleclient.dll. The only thing I can think of is that the tool was compiled as a 32bit application.  Is there a 64bit version available? Is there something else that I'm missing?

Secured Oracle Provider



Ours is a Asp.net web application. Database is Oracle. Its an Internet Application.

Database will be in one location and Web application in another. Data from Oracle to Web application will be passed over Internet.

We are using EnterpriseLibrary. And provider is System.Data.OracleClient.

We need a provider which encrypts the data while passing data over internet.

Do we need to go for some third party Providers or ODBC ?

Please let me know..


Process.Start - arguments length restriction to 2080 characters

Hi, I'm wondering why is there a limit to "The sum of the length of the arguments and the length of the full path to the process " to 2080? I see that the documentation says that a Win32Exception is thrown if this exceeds 2080 characters. Can someone please explain to me this limit? I'm trying to start a process and I have a lot of arguments to pass, and of course ... I exceed the limit of 2080.   Thanks, Ionut.
