    I depends upon the shell you are using.
    For sh or bash, then
    export ORACLE_HOME=/a/oracle/product/10.2.0
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    Actually, I think that is true for ksh and bash; for Bourne shell (sh) you would have to use two commands:
    ORACLE_HOME=/a/oracle/product/10.2.0
    export ORACLE_HOME
    ---
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    It appears that you are new to Oracle & new to Unix and are incapable or unwilling to read & follow the #1 Sticky post in this forum.
    You should always post Operating System name & version; plus Oracle version to 4 decimal places.
    I suggest you visit http://tahiti.oracle.com & read and follow the Installation Guide for your particular flavor of Unix.
    Alternatively, you might want to stick with Access on Windoze where all you have to do is point & click.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.

    SHAZAAM!

    Yesterday I was going to suggest reading the INSTALLATION GUIDE but then I said to myself: "nah! not needed now. this subject is covered"

    Go read the install guide. It has all that information and how to set everything and examples all in there. Enjoy.
