Accessing DB2 from Oracle forms via CAE(2)
James,
I'm assuming you're accessing db2 via odbc from oracle forms via
the open client adapter(oca). I've had similar issues with using
the OCA 1.x, which is shipped / compatible with oracle forms
4.5. (I'm being diplomatic; actually, nothing much worked).
The OCA version 2.x, shipped / compatible with oracle forms 5.0
is much, much better. They actually tested it against other
databases and provide useful documentation ! If the upgrade
to forms 5.0 is an option, then it's a must. See the file
oca_info.pdf for lots of useful tips.
