Unable to Connect to Oracle DB with BOE XI

We've been having issues trying to run our report which connects to an Oracle database. We have the 10g (10.2) client installed and the test connections in the ODBC and SQL Plus work fine. Running these reports work using Crystal Reports designer.

Running these reports do not work in Business Objects Enterprise XI. It fails every time with an error code of Database Vendor Code: 12154. After looking around on various sites, I saw that people were recommending that we check the TNSnames.ora file and we have. Everything looks correct in there. If it was incorrect, I would think that the connection would fail in Crystal Reports and in the ODBC test.

    if the BOBJ server is installed on a 64 bit server please make sure that the 32bit Oracle driver is installed.

      That's strange because we are moving from Crystal Enterprise 10 to Business Objects Enterprise 11 and the reports work fine in the older Crystal Enterprise 10.

      We'll try what you suggested and let you know what happens.

      We added the environment variable and it looks like it didn't work.

      The connection to Oracle works fine in Crystal Reports Designer and in the ODBC test.

      I just think that Enterprise doing something different with the connection. There's something that Enterprise is doing wrong when it's trying to connect its reports to Oracle and I can't figure out what that is.
