Problem connecting to Oracle database


Just downloaded Toad for Data Analysts Beta and I’m attempting to
connect to one of my Oracle databases. I chose Oracle in the ‘group’
LOV in the New Connection window and immediately get this error. What
can I do to fix this?



Jenni, this issue has been fixed and will be available in the next Beta.

Are you using direct connect or do you have an Oracle client? If you are using
direct connect and need to get past this issue before the next beta, I suggest
you install Oracle Instant Client. This will eliminate the error and give you
better performance and more native data types. You can download from:
