OBCD for Oracle


Hi Experts

Someone told me in [this|Report can be refreshed in DeskI / WebI but not in InfoView; post that besides my native Oracle client, I need to define an ODBC connection to Oracle in order to be able to connect through InfoView to the source database for lets say a simple refresh.

How do I do this?

I go to Admin tools > data sources > system DSN ...

To which fields do following Oracle ODBC parameters refer ?

Data Source Name =? TNSNAMES entry

Description =? Free to choose

User Name = DB User

Serevr =? TNSNAMES entry or DNS address

Does one of the parameters need to be similar to the name of the connection as I see them in the CMC ??

The thing is, I can edit, refresh, create reports with source data in the thin clients, but can't do a refresh in InfoView... Some oracle messge then shows telling me:
