Does anyone know how to do this in less than 30 steps, after uninstalling and reinstalling all the software and DB several times?
It basically just cost me a job, because lacking an ODBC, working from home, I can't run ADO, OLEDB, even link tables in Access so I can run ADO or DAO into THAT.
Seriously, I've pulled data from a mainframe OS2 into Excel with less trouble. If Oracle can't handle a simple ODBC like IBM, something is very wrong.
They are the most common, universal connection objects in the world. Why does this have to be like pulling teeth?
