Hello All,

I am trying to query an Oracle database from a linked 2005 SQL Server. I am pretty sure the error has something to do with the table name being DOCUMENT. I can query all other tables in the server except this one one, I even put the table name in brackets and get the same error(s). Code

It's true that DOCUMENT is a reserved word in Oracle.  If you call "SELECT * FROM "EMRTST2".."ML"."DOCUMENT" that should be working (it's true that it's Pervasive way to call objects but oh well.... why not to try it?)

No that didn't work... I can query it just fine within an Oracle SQL Developer Screen.

If you have SQL Server Management Studio, just check whether you can see the table when you choose the following options:
Linked Servers -> EMRTST2 -> Catalogs -> default -> tables

I ended up making of a view of the table in Oracle and querying that view via SQL Server... I know just a band-aid but it works.
