    Oracle XE Client - ODBC Driver

    847417
      Dear all,

      I was trying to setup an odbc connection to oracle express.

      I installed the 32-bit ODAC client, which I found here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/windows/downloads/index-101290.html

      In the ODBC administrator, I can find the following 2 drivers.

      1) Oracle in OraClient11g_home1
      2) Oracle in XE

      Could you please confirm that the client that I installed was the right one to use with Oracle XE? In older posts I found that there was a client specifically for XE?
      Also, is the 'OraClient11g_home1' driver the right driver to use if I want to establish a connection between Excel VBA and my Oracle database?

      Thank you very much!

      Kind regards,

      Tobi
