WBS with primavera SDK

I am using C# 2008, to integrate AutoCad with Primavera. I want to collect WBS through Primavera SDK. I can get projects by

"SELECT wbs_id, wbs_concat_name, wbs_name FROM PROJWBS WHERE node_type = 'PROJECT'"

But, I can not collect WBS s by the following SQLs

"SELECT wbs_id, wbs_concat_name, wbs_name FROM PROJWBS WHERE proj_id = '" + <Project ID>+ "'"


"SELECT wbs_id, wbs_concat_name, wbs_name FROM PROJWBS WHERE node_type = 'WBS'"

Am I wrong? Is those SQL s are wrong?

Regarding your first problem query:  Note that the PROJWBS.proj_id field you are using is an integer.  This is the internal foreign key to the PROJECT table record for the project you are interested in.  Here I am assuming that your <Project ID> placeholder is the Project Id value seen within the Primavera application.
Regarding your second problem query:  You should be getting data back BUT for all projects, not just the project you are interested in providing your SCOPE level is set properly (defined in the Programmers Guide).  In order to restrict this to the desired project you must identify the desired project by
(1) JOIN to the PROJECT table for the desired PROJECT.proj_short_name field value equal to your <Project ID> placeholder is the Project Id value seen within the Primavera application.
(2) Identify value in (1) and used directly in you query against PROJWBS.
General comment:  You should really consider using the P6 Web Services API instead of the SDK, assuming you are at least that version.  The current version is P6 Release 7 with Release 8 expected by the end of the year.
