Oracle XE Client - ODBC Driver

Dear all,

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

I installed the 32-bit ODAC client, which I found here:

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,
