See Connect to an Oracle Database.

Connecting to Oracle

  • Version 64-bit OLEDB provider had issues with FIXED DECIMAL. Alteryx recommends using the 11g or newer driver.

  • Oracle Connection uses the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) library to connect to the Oracle database. This library is part of the Client software installed with the database.
  • Oracle OLEDB is not supported in the In-Database tools. Use ODBC or OCI.

Stored procedures


Known Issues

  • A single workflow with ODBC connections cannot contain either OleDB or OCI connections using the same driver.
  • If you are connecting to an Oracle database that contains UnicodeĀ® encoded data, select Force SQL WChar Support in the Input Data Tool Configuration window. Character columns are then treated as SQL_WCHAR, SQL_WVARCHAR, or SQL_WLONGVARCHAR.
