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?

What's wrong with MSDAORA.1 (Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle) in SQL2008R2

Dear Gurus, I'd install a test SQL2008R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Version. And Install Oracle both x86 and x64 version Client. And I'd create a new AS Database as AS System Administrator. And then create a new Datasource with "Microsoft OLE DB Prodiver for Oracle" Provider. When I test connection ,  it tested succeed. Then I create Datasource View / Dimension / Cubes etc... But when I process then Database. There is a error occurs. "Database Access Module Error , Provider 'MSDAORA.1' not register" I'd follow http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms152516.aspx change SQL Server 2008 R2's registry key as the note. Then restart this server . But still same error !   And I'd success process the cube if I change provider as "Oracle OLE DB Proverder"   Is MSDAORA been obsolete in SQL SERVER 2008 R2 ?Wilson

VisualStudio 2008 64bit in windows 2008 r2 64 bit oracle does not connect to databas



I am currently using visualstudio 2008 with 3.5 framework sp1 release.

We want to migrate our applications to the new server everything as a 64 bit. which is having the following configuration 

windows 2008 server  R2 64 bit with Oracle as backend.

We donot have any 32 bit oracle client tools installed.I am able to connect to the database by using a console/windows/class library applications

When I try to simply connect to the database(open and close the connection) using either a website or a webapplication.I am getting the following different types of exceptions

Oracle client and networking components were not found. These components
are supplied by Oracle Corporation and are part of the Oracle version
7.3.3 or later client software installation.

Provider is unable to function until these components are installed.
Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException.
This problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit
Oracle client components installed.

Sql Server 2008 (64bit) on Windows Server 2008 with a connection to Oracle 10g (64bit)



I know there are similar questions posed but none that provided a solution to my particular problem.

I am upgrading a SSIS package from Sql Server 2005 (32bit) to Sql Server 2008 (64bit) on Windows Server 2008 R2. It worked on the Sql Server 2005 machine. This package connects to an Oracle 10g (64bit) database.

The Oracle 11g client and networking tools are installed (by the Oracle DBA). I tested my connection on the sql server 2008 machine using SqlPlus and doing a tnsping. I can also create a Windows ODBC datasource connection to the Oracle 10g database.

The package executes properly on my local computer XP (32bit) running bids 2008.

The package fails on the server in SSIS. I need to be able to schedule the package in a job so it must run in SSIS.

I have also tired to create a connection manager to the Windows ODBC oracle connection without success. It is blank and does not allow me to select or refresh to view the Windows ODBC datasources.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have seen other forums where installing the Oracle 11g ODAC and Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio might assist in creating the package. But I need assistance in running the package from SSIS and not BIDS.






Oracle connection fail with Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle MSDAORA.1



On my dev server I have working ssis packages that use connections Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle MSDAORA.1 and Oracle provider for oledb and OracleClient data provider.

I use one or the other according to my needs.

In anticipation and to prepare for the build of a new production server, I have build a test server from scratch and deployed to it the entire dev.

Almost everything works except Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle.

ssis packages on the test machine will return an error

Error at Pull Calendar from One [OLE DB Source [1]]: The AcquireConnection method call to the connection manager "one.oledb" failed with error code 0xC0202009.

Unable to connect to Oracle because MSDAORA is not registered


I am moving a simple .NET application from 32-bit windows to 64-bit windows. I already had a lot of fun setting up my connection to Oracle after installing the Oracle client 9i because it will not connect if there are parentheses in the PATH variable. So I am currently launching Visual Studio 2005 from DOS.

Using server explorer I can set up a connection to the Oracle instance and see the contents just fine.

I am connecting with OleDbConnection and send a Connection String beginning with "Provider=MSDAORA;

When I run I catch the following exception:

System.InvalidOperationException: The 'MSDAORA' provider is not registered on the local machine.

That sounds like the driver was not installed. But then why can I use the driver in Server Explorer.

Info on the Go: Wireless Internet Database Connectivity with ASP, XML, and SQL Server


Many handheld wireless devices such as cellular phones and PDAs already have the ability to access Web sites. So how do you build Web applications that tap this wireless audience? Although there are a number of limitations to wireless devices-such as screen size, navigation, and connection speed-you can use familiar Web development technologies to make your existing Web applications available to mobile users. This article outlines the services and equipment currently available to support wireless Web access. A sample wireless-accessible Web site that dynamically draws data from a SQL Server database back end in real time is created using tools such as ASP and XML.

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"];
