Hi,

I am trying to convert a VB report written for SQL database to work against Oracle db.  The SQL db statement was:

select t1.a, t1.b, t2.c
from table1 t left outer join table2 t2 on t1.a=t2.a
where t1.a = @Parameter1

When I try to use the same syntax for the Oracle backend, I get a missing expression error, ORA-00936.  Is there an alternative way I have to define parameters for Oracle (rather than the @)?  

I did take case sensitivity into account for field names.

Thanks,
Dee

Where are you running this?  From a program, or just in SQL*PLUS?

If just in SQL*PLUS, then run:

select t1.a, t1.b, t2.c
from table1 t left outer join table2 t2 on t1.a=t2.a
where t1.a = &Parameter1;
