Receiving characters in my DB Messages:
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied?
I Normally see this when manipulating a file and not properly setting the encoding. How is it done with a database connection?
I am using the 32bit 10g Oracle Instant Client while connecting to an 11g database.
I found the following regarding encoding and a recordset. But nothing at the database level (if any).
I also dug into “ToText” in the newer framework which is supposed to use UTF-8 “automagically.” When I use the “ToText” on the DB object within a msgbox(), my application crashes without displaying the ErrorMessage.
At this point I am not sure I am even on the correct path with my problem being encoding. BTW, I am intentionally providing invalid credentials. This is a cosmetic issue currently.
