Subject:Re: Setting Up Paradox 11 for Oracle

You'll need an Oracle ODBC driver.  Then create an ODBC System DSN to 
the Oracle database.

IMPORTANT: Use the ODBCAD32.EXE file in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (or 
equivalent), not the one which shows up by default in Admin tools.

Then open BDE Administrator, Configuration > System > INIT and make sure 
AUTO ODBC is set to TRUE.  Then go over to Databases > Databases and 
your ODBC DSN should be in the list - if not, save the BDE config, close 
and reopen the BDE.

In the BDE, edit the alias for the ODBC DSN  to set ROWSET Size to 0, 
and give it a USER NAME.  I think the defaults for the rest are OK, but 
if it doesn't work for you, let us know and we can go over all the settings.
