i am not sure because i never got this error and never heard that toad can give this error.

may be exit/restart your toad and try.

Is this issue happening all the time only for a particular query ?
is this issue happening for all queries ?

Thanks

What is the query?
Which version of TOAD?

It happens when I change the parameter to a certain month in the query.  A different parameter works fine, but it errors out on others.  Restarting TOAD does not help.

Version 8.1.7.  It's not the query because I get the error on even a simple select all.

The error is occuring I think because of a bad date value.  I checked the View's code and tried running it and got a "date not valid for month specified".  Is there a way to weed out invalid dates in the where clause?

Are you trying to change the parameters before the completion of the query?

Changing the parameters before the completion of the query will lead to re-binding of values. It can lead to 1002 error.

>> how do you resolve an invalid month error??
What is the data type of your column? What is the expected format of data?

It says Date.  It's being formatted in the view as 'MM/DD/YYYY'.

So if certain records in this table are an invalid date then how do you resolve it?

How can invalid date get into a date column?

Are you giving an invalid date in the where clause?

Why not?  That's what it says here?  If not then why would it error out on certain parameters and not on others.  There's no date in the where clause.  All the parameters in the where clause are of type char.

If you take a look at that link, they are applying a to_date function to two columns. That means the columns are "NOT OF TYPE DATE". And it has data not in the proper format.

TO_DATE (b.plannedstart_1, 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS') >=
                             TO_DATE (a.release_date, 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS')

If you are really looking for any help here. You should provide the query and the definition of the view.
