Please note of this bug:

In order to connect to a OracleDB, you need a commercial (business) version of livecode, because the oracle drivers are proprietary. The connection is:

put revOpenDatabase("oracle", DBHOST_Oracle, databaseName, DBUSER_Oracle,DBPSWD_Oracle) into gConnectionID_Oracle


  • Databasename is the name of the database
  • DBHOST_Oracle is the internet/local address of the database, you may specify also a port
  • BUSER_Oracle is the user name
  • DBPSWD_Oracle is the user password


put revOpenDatabase("oracle", "", "MyDB", myUsr, myPass) into cID
