    Test Connection Successful but can't actually use OLE DB Provider....

    906607
      I used Net Configuration Assistant to set up the tnsnames.ora, and tested the connection. It connects to the database. 100% great, fine. No problems.


      When I try to use the OLE DB Provider, i get the world-famous ORA-12154 error. Please help, I spent all day on this and got absolutely nowhere.

      My tnsnames.ora:
      # tnsnames.ora Network Configuration File: C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\Client_1\NETWORK\ADMIN\tnsnames.ora
      # Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

      ABC =
      (DESCRIPTION =
      (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 10.10.6.251)(PORT = 1521))
      )
      (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVICE_NAME = abc)
      )
      )

      Not sure why I'm getting this error.....is there a special way to configure the OLE Provider?

      I can run tnsping.exe (tnsping abc) and it works so i think TNS is set up correctly.
      How to tell OLE Provider though?
      Thank You
