If you can't get SQL*XL to work please check this page to see whether you run the correct
environment on your PC. To run SQL*XL you need the following on the client PC. You do not need anything special
on the database servers.
Oracle Client for Oracle 7 or better or install the Oracle Instant Client (only if you try to connect to Oracle databses)
either the full Oracle home or the much smaller Oracle Instant Client software.
If you need the Oracle Client software speak
to your local database administrator. You can download the free Oracle Instant
Client software from technet.oracle.com.
Note that You can only connect through ODBC using the Oracle Instant Client whereas you can choose between OO4O, OLE
DB or ODBC when you have the full Oracle client installed.
Oracle Objects for OLE (OO4O) (only if you try to connect to or Oracle databses)
If SQL*XL complains about the OO4O
setup of missing files for OO4O please install it again. It is available for
free from Oracle at http://technet.oracle.com in the software drivers
section. You can also connect
to Oracle through OLE DB and ODBC. Please configure a new ADO connection. For those without a full Oracle Client
installed, you can use the much smaller Oracle Instant Client.
OLEDB or ODBC (only if you try to connect through SQL*XL ADO)
In order for SQL*XL to connect using the SQL*XL ADO software and use ODBC or OLEDB
you need to have installed the ODBC and/or OLEDB drivers. On most PCs this is already installed
as part of the operating system (MDAC: see www.microsoft.com/data). Refer to the
connection help for details how to connect to your database.
Windows95 or better
Right click on the my computer icon on your screen. Properties tells you which version of windows you are running.
Excel 97 or better
In Excel see the help about dialog.
