VB6 SQL query problem

I am using VB to get data from a Microsoft SQL database. I used Microsoft Query to generate a SQL statement. The query ran perfectly in Microsoft Query. But when I used it in my application it returned this error message.
Run-time error '-2147217900 (80040e14)': [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server] Invalid column name 'C'.

I have tried other queries which work correctly. It seems to be the last bit that causes the problem
AND ((bmwohm.status <> ""C""))"
---Microsoft Query---

SELECT rl_lot.works_order, rl_lot.line_no, rl_lot.lot, rl_lot.expiry, bmwohm.status

FROM cs3live.scheme.bmwohm bmwohm, cs3live.scheme.rl_lot rl_lot

WHERE bmwohm.works_order = rl_lot.works_order AND ((bmwohm.status<>"C"))
 

---Code used in VB---

SQL = "SELECT rl_lot.works_order, rl_lot.line_no, rl_lot.lot, rl_lot.expiry " & _

                "FROM cs3live.scheme.bmwohm bmwohm, cs3live.scheme.rl_lot rl_lot " & _

                "WHERE bmwohm.works_order = rl_lot.works_order AND ((bmwohm.status <> ""C""))"

Hello Randox_Laboratories,

Because you either need to include "Set QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON" in your statement or use single quotes instead (the latter is easier!)

   SQL = "SELECT rl_lot.works_order, rl_lot.line_no, rl_lot.lot, rl_lot.expiry " & _
                   "FROM cs3live.scheme.bmwohm bmwohm, cs3live.scheme.rl_lot rl_lot " & _
                   "WHERE bmwohm.works_order = rl_lot.works_order AND ((bmwohm.status <> 'C'))"

Regards,

TimCottee
