Hi Divya,

You need to install the '32-bit Oracle client' drivers that can connect to your database. Once you install these drivers, the 'Oracle Server' connection type should be visible under 'Database Expert' (assuming the Path variable is also correctly pointing to the 32-bit Oracle home).

You've downloaded the Instant Client and from my experience that is Not the best driver to have!

Please get in touch with your Oracle Admin and request for the Full Client. Also ask them to setup the Path statement (if there are any issues) and TNS entries.
