I'm having problems with Visual Studio 2010 when I update my current ODAC (126.96.36.199.2) to the newest 188.8.131.52.0 version.
I use a lot of Reports (.rdlc) which have datasets that get their data from stored procedures, usually procedure returns a cursor.
If I upgrade to the newest ODAC with VS Tools the dataset creation wizard cannot fetch the columns that the returned cursor has. I have tested this with following sequence:
- Create new "Reports Application" project
- Click through the wizard and select a procedure which returns a cursor
- When I click "Finish" on the "Data Soure Configuration Wizard" it does something and then returns to "Report Wizard"-window
- The problem is that "Datasource"- and "Available Datasets"-dropdown are empty. With the older version of VS Tools I can select my DataSet and see the columns in the "Fields" table
If I install the new version I can use the Entity Framework but it breaks the Dataset creation. One thing I noticed with the new version of ODAC is that if I try to map a procedure to a function I cannot resolve the columns using "Get Columns" button. It always says that procedure doesn't return columns.
My configuration is:
Windows 7 64bit
Visual Studio 2010 Professional (SP1)
Oracle Database Client 11.2 installed in first Oracle home (client_1)
ODAC 184.108.40.206.2 installed in second Oracle home (client_2)
Oracle Database 11g XE
