Hi,<BR><BR>Iam working with Visual Basic Documents which connect to Oracle 8.0 database and display the data to the user. When i am in the design mode and run the document it is working fine. But, when i make a internet download package of the application and test it, it is throwing up the following error...<BR><BR>"ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve service name"<BR><BR>I have checked the tnsnames.ora file and there is nothing wrong with it. <BR><BR>Iam using the "Microsoft OLEDB Provider for Oracle" in my application.<BR><BR>Am i doing something wrong? do i need to include the tnsnames.ora file also in the setup? (but, even if i did, it is not working).<BR><BR>Can anyone have any ideas on this??<BR><BR>Cheers,<BR>Sai.<BR><BR>
