    Oracle 8i has NOT been supported any time this century.
    It very well could be it is NOT supported on what Operating System you are using.

    Your initial post is lacking in meaningful details to provide any more assistance.
    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.
