To connect to an Oracle database using OraOLEDB, the OLE DB connection string must be as follows:

"Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=R2D2;User ID=foo; Password=bar";

Make sure that you have entry for the data source in tnsnames.ora file and TNSListener service is running. For more information on OraOLEDB provider refer to Orcale9i documentation.

And as an example code try this

private bool ValidateUser(string strLogin, string strPwd)
bool bRet = false;
OleDbConnection conn = null;
string connString = "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=R2D2;User ID=foo;Password=bar";
conn = new OleDbConnection(connString);
string strQuery = "select * from siteusers where login='" + strLogin + "'";
OleDbCommand obCmd = new OleDbCommand(strQuery, conn);
OleDbDataReader obReader = obCmd.ExecuteReader();
while (obReader.Read())
string strVal = obReader["password"].ToString();
if (string.Compare(strVal, strPwd) == 0)
bRet = true;
catch (OleDbException ex)
throw ex;
if (null != conn)
return bRet;

Hope it worked!

[1] Namespace that you need to add is:


[2] Why to use Try/Catch Block:

Place the sections of code that might throw exceptions in a try block and place code that handles exceptions in a catch block. The catch block is a series of statements beginning with the keyword catch, followed by an exception type and an action to be taken.

Note:  Almost any line of code can cause an exception, particularly exceptions that are thrown by the common language runtime itself, such as SqlException,  OutOfMemoryException and StackOverflowException. Most applications do not have to deal with these exceptions, but you should be aware of this possibility when writing libraries to be used by others. For suggestions on when to set code in a try block

Oracle Connections with .net webforms

Oracle 8i client connected to Oracle 9 database.
I have connected my Powerbuilder 9 application to a Oracle 9i database using Oracle 8i client. My Oracle home is set to 8. My Powerbuilder DB connection is using Oracle 8. Things seem to work. Why? In general, there will be compatibilty between client and server versions here; however, you'd have to check Oracle for their specific supported configurations. If you try to access anything new in Oracle 9 (like new datatypes, etc.), I expect you'll see problems that may be handled gracefully or not so gracefully.
