Connecting to a 10g Oracle Database - getting error ora 03134

When connecting to an Oracle 10g database I get an error that "Connections to this server version are no longer supported". Is there anyone who has found a workaround?

Hi @kjboardman,

Have you installed the correct Oracle client following the instructions in this article? Once the Oracle client is properly installed, enter the connection details in TNSnames.ora file, then connect to Oracle database from Power BI Desktop and check if it is successful. Alternatively, you can connect to the Oracle Database via EZConnect connection string. For more details, please review the following similar blog.

In addition, based on Miguel’s response in this idea, you can also connect to Oracle database by using System.Data.OracleClient which is packaged with .Net 3.5 framework. In this case, you can open Get data>“Blank Query” option in Power BI Desktop and type in “= Oracle.Database” in the formula bar. This will allow you to specify a Server and any other additional options to connect.
