The method is to a large extent dependent on which client tool you are using. Is it, for example SQL*Plus? SQL Developer? Something else?

No need to post the exact same message three times.

No, that's not the message. The message would have been TNS-nnnnn (or ORA-nnnnn), with the 'nnnnn' being some number. And knowing what that number is is key to solving your problem. You have, in effect, posted this:

"I bought a car but cannot get it started. What's wrong with my car?"

Six minutes earlier you said

Quote:

Btw, there is no client named 'pl/sql* plus'. I assume you mean 'sqlplus'.
And the client product PL/SQL Developer is not an Oracle product. I'll further assume you mean "SQL Developer".

Either way, which is it, sqlplus or SQL Developer? If you are trying with both, we need to pick one and stick with it until you get the problem solved, then we can deal with the other.

SIR I JUST COPIED THE TRANNAMES.ORA FILE FROM THE FOLLOWING LOCATION

C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server\NETWORK\ADMIN


AND THEN I PASTED THIS FILE AS IT IS INTO THE FOLLOWING LOCATION IN THE CLIENT PC.

C:\orant\NET80\ADMIN


But it did not work.


The folder onto the server is shared but the database is not being connected from the client pc.

will anyone please guide me?




the text in the transnames.ora file of server on which oracle is installed is written below:


XE =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = SERVER)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVER = DEDICATED)
(SERVICE_NAME = XE)
)
)

EXTPROC_CONNECTION_DATA =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC_FOR_XE))
)
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SID = PLSExtProc)
(PRESENTATION = RO)
)
)

ORACLR_CONNECTION_DATA =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC_FOR_XE))
)
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SID = CLRExtProc)
(PRESENTATION = RO)
)
)

>But it did not work.
Above is 100% devoid of any actionable detail.

My car does not work.
Tell me how to make my car go.

If client system can not or does not access the shared server drive/folder, then root cause & fix are 100% external to Oracle & you need to contact your local Windows administrator for assistance.

Unless & until client can directly access the content of tnsnames.ora file, Oracle is the victim & not the culprit.
Post COPY & PASTE proof that client can directly access tnsname.ora file on the Windows server system.

the shared folder of the server in which all fmx files are available, can be accessed easily from all client PCS.
There is no networking related issue. Its confirm.
Even when I run the oracle same .fmx file name "Login", then there is no issue.
The software is working ok.
But when I access the same login file shortcut from the shared folder of server then it shows the login form but given following error.

TNS-12203: TNS:unable to connect to destination


Software is runing when machine is same.

You must try to be more precise. You will never get anywhere in computing if you are not precise. For example, you said that you were using PL/SQL Developer. But now you talk about a .fmx file, which would be the Forms client.

You had better start again, with a simple SQL*Plus connection and move on to more complicated tools when you have that working. Start like this, and use copy/paste to show the result:

TNS-12203: TNS:unable to connect to destination

What is that "same login file shortcut"? Where does it point to? What is the contents of the target file? How do you run it (clicking on it in the shared folder which is mapped on your PC or did you first copy it to your PC and then click on it)?

Furthermore, it seems that you have Forms on your PC, and Forms can connect to the database. Is that correct? If so, it - obviously - uses information that is correct.

Note that every (as far as I can tell) Oracle product has its own TNSNAMES.ORA. It means that Forms, somewhere in its tree, also has and uses yet another copy of the TNSNAMES.ORA file. Search for it. Once you locate it, I'd suggest you to create an environment variable named TNS_ADMIN which will point to that directory. Or, maybe even better, put that file (TNSNAMES.ORA), as well as SQLNET.ORA into a new folder (such as c:\oralib) and let TNS_ADMIN point to it (here's how). Doing so, you'll instruct Oracle to check that directory first and use TNSNAMES.ORA file it finds in there. Also, you'll have to maintain only that single copy of the file (when adding new databases you connect to), instead of multiple ones.

Once you're done, all Oracle software you use (Forms, SQL*Plus, PL/SQL Developer, ...) should be able to establish connection.
