Hi,
I am trying to delete some rows from Oracle Table using simple VB.NET Application.

 
Dim ClearSTR As String = "DELETE FROM STATEMENTS A " & _
           " WHERE EXISTS ( select  A.ACCNO " & _
           " from  reverselines T " & _
           " WHERE A.ACCNO = T.ACCNO AND A.FIYID= T.FIYID AND A.PERID = T.PERID AND A.LINENO = T.LINENO ); "

Dim daDelete As Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDataAdapter = New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleDataAdapter

daDelete.SelectCommand = New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleCommand(ClearSTR, GetConnection)
daDelete.SelectCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

Open in new window


and I am getting the following error message:

 
-- Error 
Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleException ORA-00911: invalid character    at Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleException.HandleErrorHelper(Int32 errCode, OracleConnection conn, IntPtr opsErrCtx, OpoSqlValCtx* pOpoSqlValCtx, Object src, String procedure, Boolean bCheck)
   at Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleException.HandleError(Int32 errCode, OracleConnection conn, String procedure, IntPtr opsErrCtx, OpoSqlValCtx* pOpoSqlValCtx, Object src, Boolean bCheck)
   at Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
   at BankRecon.Main.BankRemoveReverse_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in C:\Users\Rafal\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\BankRecon\BankRecon\Main.vb:line 2099

Open in new window


I checked the statement in in PL/SQL Developer application and there is no error, the command execute without any problem.

So where is the problem?

Thank you for your help.

I think you need to use delete command instade of select try thjis

daDelete.DeleteCommand = New Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleCommand(ClearSTR, GetConnection)
daDelete.DeleteCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

Yes, fixed. I had to remove the ; character and then change the code to DeleteCommand..

Thanks for help.
