You can connect Oracle databases using these ways:

1. Opening through FD interface. Select FD interface, click Oracle, then fill all needed database parameters. Consult with your database administrator on how to choose correct parameters.

Example of configuring a database connection:

(colored are required parameters)

Vendor homepathC:\app\product\12.1.0\client_1
OS authenticationNo
Authentication modeNormal
Application nameExportizer Enterprise 8
User namedexter
SQL command separator<sqlplus>

2. Opening through ODBC DSN (interface: ADO or BDE). Select ODBC data source option and then select the ODBC DSN from the drop-down list. But first, you should create an ODBC DSN of the corresponding type using Windows administrative tools, and point it to the database.

3. Opening through connection string (interface: ADO). Select Connection string option and write a connection string. This way is the most flexible one because it allows to specify many additional parameters in the connection string and override standard Exportizer connection behavior. But it is recommended basically for advanced users. Here are basic connection strings (more examples and details can be found in the Internet):

Provider=msdaora;Data Source=MyOracleDB;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;   (Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle must be installed)

Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=MyOracleDB;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;   (Oracle Provider for OLE DB must be installed)

Driver={Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle};;Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;   (Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle must be installed)

Provider=MSDASQL.1;Extended Properties="DSN=ORACLE_DB;UID=MyUsername;PWD=MyPassword"

Oracle client must be installed. The bit-version of it (32 or 64) must match the bit-version of the application.
This database type is supported only in Exportizer Enterprise. Exportizer Pro can open such databases via ODBC only.
