Create a Project in an Oracle Database

To create a project in a repository on Oracle 9i, 10g, 11g or 12c, you work through the following stages:

·Stage 1: Create an empty database repository and set up the data tables
·Stage 2: Set up the ODBC Driver (if required; you can connect to an Oracle repository using either OLE DB or an ODBC driver; if you intend to connect through the ODBC driver, you must first set it up)
·Stage 3: Perform a project integrity check on the project file you are using as a base (optional, but recommended)
·Stage 4: Transfer the data
·Stage 5: Connect to the repository to open the project
 

Prerequisites

·Oracle 9i, 10g or 11 g has been installed
