[FWTools] Windows & OCI

Many thanks.

I have just installed this, and the oracle plugin, executed the same command and get the same error.

ogr2ogr -f OCI OCI:username/password at instance c:\vmd\merged\area\*.SHP GEOMETRY_NAME=GEOMETRY MULTI_LOAD=TRUE SRID=27700

Is the syntax any different for the oracle plugin?

Thanks, steve

Try OSGeo4W instead of FWTools. It has an Oracle 10g plugin as a separate package.

Hi All,

I have installed FWTools on windows, and have a requirement to load a lot of shapefiles in to a single Oracle Spatial table.  It seems I can do this using FWTools using a batch file.

The issue I am having, is that I am getting the Unable to find driver `OCI' message.

Can someone share with me the procedure for enabling OCI support with FWTools?  I have installed the Oracle client, and configured successfully the name service.

I am using the line:

ogr2ogr -f OCI OCI:<username>/<password>@<netservicename> *.SHP GEOMETRY_NAME=GEOMETRY MULTI_LOAD=TRUE SRID=27700

Anyones help on this would be greatly appreciated.  I am using windows 7.
