After creating a parameterized remote view to an Oracle 8.0 table using the Oracle 8.0 ODBC driver, the following error occurs when you try to save the remote view:
No result set has been returned by the server.
The remote view runs while in design mode, but saving the remote view causes the error to occur. This error does not occur when using the Microsoft Oracle ODBC driver.

Use the Microsoft Oracle ODBC driver. Please see the article listed in the REFERENCES section for information on obtaining the Microsoft Oracle ODBC driver.

  6. Run the remote view and type something into the View Parameters dialog box. Note that the remote view returns data if it find a matching record.
