Me too. That was That, however, was not the question. In oracle11, they have this shiny new product which was supposed to be a standalone product, and which would do the same thing. First, there is no such product available for download. One has to download the whole caboodle. Second, when one does download the whole thing, it doesn't work. I opened a SR, uploaded files and the Oracle analyst responded that he cannot open TGZ files and asked me to re-send the whole thing. That tells me something about the resources that Oracle Corp. is putting into that product, even if I hadn't noticed that they're shipping incompatible software for almost 2 years now. At this point, I am close to wiping it all out and downloading the good, old Oracle which I know to work. Basically, ODBC gateway is just a marketing feature, it doesn't really work.
