definitely you'll need to use the Oracle driver, and not the microsoft driver;
besides there not being a 64 bit version of the MSDAORA driver, there are a few other issues as well; that driver was last updated for Oracle Version 8, so
no TNS support.
I seem to rem3ember there being an issue with LCOBS/BLOBS being handled differently,a nd the provider having issues, but i'd have to gooogle that;
like you, it's been a while since i fiddled with Oracle and the MSDAORA; we swiched to the oracle provider a long time ago.
