    Oracle 11g ODBC connectivity questions


      I am able to install the 11g database just fine with no problems, and manage it through the Enterprise Manager.

      My issue is working and configuring Oracle OBDC connections.

      Is it necessary to install the Oracle client to setup an ODBC connection?

      Is the ODAC necessary to create an Oracle ODBC connection?

      If so is there a particular order each needs to be installed?

      How can you get your service name to be recognized correctly so that you can connect your application to the data source?

      I have read a lot on the web on this topic, but it is confusing me so I am coming to the forum where I know I can an answer or at least get me back on the right track.
