I'm trying to pull some data drom an Oracle database and it woeks fine with:

       iCode = "00001"    
 
      Dim strSQL

      strSQL = "Select * FROM PPI.PPT_CLASS_TABLE_QCLA WHERE CLASS_CD = '00001'"



But when I try the following I get the error message pasted below.

       iCode = "00001"    
 
      Dim strSQL


     strSQL = "Select * FROM PPI.PPT_CLASS_TABLE_QCLA WHERE CLASS_CD = iCode"


Here is the error message I get:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]ORA-00904: invalid column name


Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

strSQL = "Select * FROM PPI.PPT_CLASS_TABLE_QCLA WHERE CLASS_CD = '" & iCode & "'"

iCode is a variable name and not a field name. Thus you got to separate it from the "..."
