Remove the 3rd line it makes no sense in this insert statement.

Are you trying to merge or update existing data, or insert new rows?

Use update instead.

UPDATE PACKLIST SET SCHEDULED_SHIP_DATE = to_date('08/01/2009', 'mm-dd-yyyy') WHERE DRAWING = 'FX111';

And I encourage you to post to the correct DB zone (Oracle in this case), it will help you get faster answers. Error 933 is an Oracle specific error that really means nothing in "SQL query sytnax" terms. :)

You can post to both zones at once, but SQL Query syntax is shared between all DB zones.
