Using Automation Clients Overview

Oracle Objects for OLE is designed to provide quick and efficient access to the data of an Oracle database using various programming or scripting languages.

OO4O can be easily used with Visual Basic, Excel, Active Server Pages and Internet Information Server (IIS), and other development tools.

The Oracle Data Control with Visual Basic allows another method of accessing Oracle data.

Examples are provided for specific methods and properties in the online help. Additionally, example programs are installed with Oracle Objects for OLE and are located in the ORACLE_BASE\ORACLE_HOME \oo4o\ directory under VB, EXCEL, IIS, CPP, and so on.

Note: To run the examples listed here you need to perform a few Required Setups. For most examples, you need to have an Oracle database accessible with the network alias ExampleDb to run the examples without editing any of the code. See Demonstration Schema and Code Examples.

A Quick Tour of OO4O with Visual Basic is also provided.
