Hi,

I have oracle 9 and 10g. When I select particular Database, it is not detecting the correct one.

Set oracle_sid=orcl
Sqlplus /nolog
SQL*plus: Release 9.2.0.1.0- production ......

But the Database ORCL is not in 9i, it is in 10g.

please help me to get a correct Database name.

Thanks a lot

Why do you now choose to use 10.1 which an unsupported version? Choose 10.2 or better 11.2!

Also set ORACLE_HOME or install a listener and use net connection.

Your SQL*Plus is 9i, you must query v$version to see the release of the database. To see the database name, query v$database.

Hi,

Thanks for your answers.

1) As 11G is only supports in WINDOWS 7. I'm not able to have them.

2) Yes with the command V$version , it shows the correct Database version name (10g).
But why SQL*plus took 9i instead of 10g?
please tell me the reason for it....
And the solution for this.

Thanks

1) Still don't understand what you say. Waht does this mean? You are in Windows 7 but can't download 11g or you are not in Windows 7 and so it is useless (from your understanding) to download 11g?

2) Read my previous answer and add PATH to it.

Regards
Michel

May I try?

But why SQL*plus took 9i instead of 10g?

This is because 9i's SQL*Plus' directory is - in the PATH environment variable - placed before 10g's SQL*Plus' directory. So, either use its full path, for example:
C:\> C:\Oracle\product\10.2.0\client_1\BIN\sqlplus scott/tiger@ora10
     --------------------------------------
(I underlined the path) or modify the PATH environment variable and place 10g in front of 9i, or create a desktop icon(s) which will start version you want.

Thanks

You do realise that 11g was released long before windows 7 so there is no way it is only supported on windows 7?

Me again ...

I *think* that the OP says that he uses MS Windows XP as operating system. According to that fact, he installed Oracle 9i and 10g.

If he had MS Windows 7, he would have to install Oracle 11g because combinations of older Oracle versions and MS Windows 7 aren't certified.


But, why all the discussion, Windows this and Oracle that? The question was why, when he executes SQLPLUS.EXE at the command prompt, SQL*Plus 9i is used and not 10g one. Because, well, PATH and stuff.

Maybe but you didn't answer to my questions:

If you don't do it, I wonder why I should answer your future ones.
Show a little respect towards us and do not just send an "End of Topic" signal.

Yes, you can have 11g on Windows.
On my laptop with XP SP3 Professional Edition, I have 8.1.7, 9.2, 10.2, 11.1 and 11.2, no problem (or almost I have some disconnections after some idle time on socket but there is a XP patch I never tested).
Use "Microsoft Windows (32-bit)" download.

Regards
Michel
