Oracle connection

Recommended Posts



I am revisiting Autoit after a year hiatus and would like some help, I am trying to connect to my Oracle 11g server 'DVA' so that I can remotely create user accounts from AutoIT.  I have searched for connections to Oracle but seem to be going in circles, admittedly I am not a big fan of COM and ADO objects and dont fully understand them.  I have gotten the code below from the forums but I cannot get it to work for me, please see error below the code.

I have a local Oracle client installed and have also  created a DSN connection as a backup.


Any help would be greatly appreciated


#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Dim $oMyError

; Initializes COM handler
$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")

$ado = ObjCreate( "ADODB.Connection" )    ; Create a COM ADODB Object  with the Beta version

With $ado
    ; 'Set data source - for OLEDB this is a tns alias, for ODBC it can be 'either a tns alias or a DSN.
    ; If "provider" is used this means that the ODBC connections is used via DSN.
    ; if Driver is used = "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};Server=TNSnames_ora;Uid=demo;Pwd=demo;" then this is a DSN Less connector
    ; More Info for Oracle MS KB Q193332
    .ConnectionString =("Provider='OraOLEDB.Oracle';Data Source='DVA';User Id='system';Password='mypass';")
    ;.ConnectionString =("Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};Server=DVA;Uid=system;Pwd=mypass;")

$adors = ObjCreate( "ADODB.RecordSet" )    ; Create a Record Set to handles SQL Records

With $adors
        .ActiveConnection = $ado
        ;.CursorLocation = "adUseClient"
        ;.LockType = "adLockReadOnly" ; Set ODBC connection read only
        .Source = "SELECT * FROM emp WHERE Upper (NAME) LIKE 'SAM%';"

While not $adors.EOF
    For $i = 0 To $adors.Fields.Count - 1
        ConsoleWrite( $adors.Fields( $i ).Value & @TAB )    ; Columns in the AutoIt console use Column Name or Index
    $adors.MoveNext                                                ; Go to the next record

Are you able to do it via Toad or Oracle client or whatever you are using ?

use my ADO.au3 UDF and this function:


And show which provider names are avalaible in your system.

And second thoughts:

.ConnectionString =("Provider='OraOLEDB.Oracle';Data Source='DVA';User Id='system';Password='mypass';")

this looks wrong for me.

Quick look here:

And here is my guess:

.ConnectionString ="Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=DVA;User Id=system;Password=mypass;"
