Shalom Nirmal,

I was incorrect when I answered a simlar question some weeks ago on this topic.

I believe it is possible to access all the listed versions of oracle with the client you specify.

Surely the older versions. Almost 100% certain 10g as well.

Hey

as far as I know you cannot connect a 10g DB with a 9i client.
