AW: From Microsoft Access to Oracle

We extensively used OO4O with Access 2000. It works fine, gives you all the Oracle specific stuff, but ... it's more work, since you have to code more things.
I personally think it's worth it, eventhough I wouldn't go with Access in the first place. If it has to be VB, why not use VB 6.0 and Access just to display reports. There are lots of things (e.g. using ocx controls like the MS tree control in Access) that make you want to commit suicide. Nevertheless, the data access itself through OO4O works and we didn't have any problems with it.

An: Multiple recipients of list ORACLE-L Betreff: Re: From Microsoft Access to Oracle

The easiest way is to ODBC link the tables and develop like it is an MS Access project.
This is not the best way due to security and a host of other issues. I have seen using ADO & oo4o through VBA to make the connection. This seems to work ok, but does require alittle more coding then the average MS Access database project.  

OTN has some great sections of using ADO and oo4o.  

Hello list,  

   I want to create a new form in Access where user input will be there....and the data entered i have to store it in Oracle database. Can anyone of you guide me in doing this..How ???  

Thanks and Regards,
