Hi @GBK,

The database is in another machine. How I can insert data in that.



@sayalic - please try below steps

1 -Download oracle instant client (basic and odbc driver) - 32 bit
2- Extract content of both to one folder
3- Add the path of instant client folder to System variables (Path and TNS_ADMIN)
4- Install instant client by running odbc_install.exe in instant client folder
5- Create the tnsnames.ora file inside the instant client folder.
**If u have the file in some other location, make sure TNS_ADMIN is pointed to that location.
6 -Go to Administrative tool and launch Admin tool for ODBC (32 bit)
7- Create a User DSN by clicking Add button under User DSN tab
8-Select Oracle db
9- Click Finish
10 - Provide a preferred name to dsn
11- Select server name from TSN name drop down
12 -Provide server username

In the connection wizard of UiPath, generate connection string by selecting Dsn name and then providing username, password and testing connection.
On succesful connection, click OK
