Openquery and where clause

Would like help to query a view for data using openquery on a machine running Win2k server and SQL server 2000.  The remote machine is running Oracle 816.  

My general download query works:

select * from openquery(LinkServer, 'select * from tbl_name')

Would like to add a where clause->    where col_name like "2003%"  but erroring out with doesn't recognize column.  Have tried various combinations of naming but to no avail.  

Oracle DB
Schema -> Enterprise
table owner for remote db -> unknown
userid for remotedb -> user_id
table name -> tbl_name
column name -> col_name

is your where condition within the openquery or after it?

Placing the condition within the query causes the filtering to be performed on the remote server.
If you place the condition after the openquery, all data is returned and then filtering is done by sqlserver.

I have tried both ways.  If within, the query returns the column is unknown.  If outside, then the query fails to return and timesouts.
