NT Home Institution Data Business Information System

The standard ODBC driver software supported by the SCS Database Group for Oracle connectivity from Windows NT/2000 is the Oracle 8.0 ODBC driver and the Net8 sqlnet client software.  The ODBC file entries with "_MS" extensions (which were Microsoft ODBC's) are pointing to the Oracle driver for backward compatibility. They will be removed when all references to Microsoft in the code have been changed.

The location to download is


The ODBC drivers are freely downloaded from Oracle, as well as the X drive. However, the NET8 sqlnet client software is only found on CD's with other licensed Oracle software , therefore each user will have to e-mail db-admin to grant privileges on that folder for the time that they need to install.
