difficulty connecting to networked oracle database

    Now, I am no Python expert but I have dabbled and I have spent a
    couple of days with another engineer unsuccessfully installing oracle
    drivers for MS ODBC on the win XP machine.

    It looked to me like ODBC was the best way to get a (free) python
    module to upload data to an oracle database table. Aside from
    installing oracle clients to ODBC being a pain, I would like to
    consider other ways to connect.

    Has anyone had experiences with Python connecting to oracle from Win
    XP? I have searched the 'net for various modules and discussions but
    have no success thus far.

    Thanks, Graeme.

  2. As the other posters already mentioned, cx_Oracle is the way to go. I'm
    using it to connect to Oracle not only on Windows, but also on Solaris,
    Linux and AIX.
