    Oracle data connection error - 12154

    Alan Kwan

      Hi all,

       

      I just upgraded from XP to win7, so I had to configure my oracle connections again.

       

      Here are the things I have done:

       

      1) I have set up the system variable as defined by this doc:

      http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/oracle-connection

       

      2) I have set up the TNSNames.ora with the oracle server I am trying to connected to, in fact I even copied the full text from another machine that is successfully connected to the data source.

       

      3) Restarted my computer

       

      4) Even installed the oracle 8.0 driver

       

      but I am still getting the ORA-12154 error!!! Anyone has any thoughts on this?

       

      Thanks,

      Alan
