Connect to Oracle without installing Oracle client
09.10.05 at 20:34:47
 
SQL*XL can now connect to Oracle databases without the need to have the Oracle client or Oracle home software installed on the PC. How? Through the Oracle Instant client software. This is a tiny set of files that you need to install. Actually, install is a big word. You only need to unzip the files.
 
For instructions how to connect SQL*XL to Oracle through the Instant Client software please read:

After the installation you just need to create an Oracle ODBC connection:

If you need to create a new ODBC DSN, follow these instructions:

If you want to download the instant client software and read what Oracle write about it, here is the link at Oracle's technical website:
