Oracle 9i and Crystal Info 7.0 Compatible?

Oracle 9i and Crystal Info 7.0 Compatible?

Oracle 9i and Crystal Info 7.0 Compatible?

would anybody out there have any experience with the compatibilty of Oracle 9i and Crystal Info 7.0? Crystal Decisions has an article saying that Info 7.5 is ok but no mention of 7.0
Makes me nervous!

RE: Oracle 9i and Crystal Info 7.0 Compatible?

A number of our systems run on Oracle 9i databases and I have connected to them without difficulty. The only problem
I've encountered has been the use of the CLOB data type,
which was unsupported by the old ODBC driver.
(An Oracle and not an Info issue)

It would be prudent to run a trial copy of 9i on a test
server before upgrading.(A 9i trial copy can be ordered  from the oracle site)

RE: Oracle 9i and Crystal Info 7.0 Compatible?

You may have problems with various data types, but you can resolve those by exposing Views which CAST the problem data types to something CR understands.
