Connecting Visual FoxPro to Oracle database? Connecting Visual FoxPro to Oracle database? smegawat (MIS) (OP) 30 Sep 00 01:49 How do I use Visual Foxpro to connect to Oracle database? RE: Connecting Visual FoxPro to Oracle database? bobby1977 (Programmer) 2 Oct 00 03:56 Ok, here is what i've tried...Open Visual Foxpro and create a test database. then click on Connections. In the dialog box click New.You have now 2 choises: to specify a datasource or a connection string. If you hadn't declared the specific datasource for your Oracle connection you can do it now. I used Oracle ODBC driver as Microsoft's ODBC driver for Oracle seems to have some problems with connectivity.It's your choice to connect to Oracle by specifying a datasource or a connection string. After that click on verify connection and it must work.You can create a connection later at runtime, but try this first.Good luck!
