I have installed Oracle 9i client tools on my XP Pro machine, but the
Oracle ODBC driver does not show up as a choice in Data Source
Administrator. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks
Dave

Thanks, Randy. I wonder why the driver installed under 9i doesn't show
up in the Data Source Administrator on my WinXP machine, but does show
up on my NT machine after the same install??

It normally doesn't show up until the first ODBC connection has been built
to an Oracle Database, the same is true with SQL2k OBDC, again it doesn't
show up until I've built the first ODBC connection, afterwards it shows up,
even though the ODBC connection is removed.
