Interesting question. Did you set up the DSN? If so, did it have a spot to test the connection? If so, what response did you get? Can you get back into the Data Sources and check out that DSN and see if it still works.

Also look into your TNSnames.ora file to see if it has an entry for the database that you are trying to access.
