You should be able to connect to Oracle 10g database if you go to Oracle10g_Home\bin directory and run SQL*Plus. It would, probably, use TNSNAMES.ORA file which is located in Oracle10g_Home\Network\Admin directory.

If you, on the other hand, go to Oracle9i_Home\bin directory, you'll probably fail to connect to the database as Oracle9i_Home\Network\Admin\tnsnames.ora doesn't know of the Oracle 10g database.

The simplest way would be to unify these TNSNAMES.ORA files (i.e. take the one from the Oracle 10g directory and copy it into the Oracle 9i one). Or, if you don't want to maintain multiple copies of the same file, check use of the TNS_ADMIN environment variable which will point Oracle to a directory which contains a single copy of the TNSNAMES.ORA file.

As you previous mention can you proviede me detail about "TNS_ADMIN environment variable" and also about service that is made to connect to database and developer.

Know my problem has solved.

Thanks & Regards
