ORACLE Error 00936

Below is the code I am using in an Access module. I've step through everything and I know the connection works fine; but, I am getting errors at the "ODBCRecordset1.Open" line. I would like to be able to run this each night then loop through the values and paste them into another table (in access). I have done this succesfully with other Oracle DB's but cant seem to get this one to work. The errors I get most frequenty are "ORA-00936 - Missing Expression" and "ORA- 00933 - SQL not properly ended"
Also, initially there were some WHERE clauses but even after I removed them I got the same errors

Any help would be great.



Public Function Connect()

Const adlockoptimistic = 3
Const adopenstatic = 3
Const aduseclient = 3


Dim ODBCConnectionString
Dim ODBCRecordset1


Set ODBCConnectionString = CreateObject("ADODB.connection")
Set ODBCRecordset1 = CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")



ODBCConnectionString.Open "Driver=Microsoft ODBC for Oracle;Server=-----;Uid=----;Pwd----;"
ODBCConnectionString.CommandTimeout = 1200
ODBCRecordset1.Open "SELECT [TECSDAT-XLPD].[PKG_XCP_RPT_DT], [TECSDAT-XLPD].[PKG_XCP_RPT_CNY_CD], [TECSDAT-XLPD].[PKG_TCK_NR], [TECSDAT-XLPD].[PKG_XCP_RSN_CD], [TECSDAT-XLPD].[SHR_AC_NR] FROM [TECSDAT-XLPD]", ODBCConnectionString, adopenstatic, adlockoptimistic


ODBCConnectionString.Close

End Function

in Oracle, don't use [object _name], but "object_name"

hi
line 19 is wrong

fix : ODBCRecordset1.Open "SELECT TECSDAT-XLPD.PKG_XCP_RPT_DT, TECSDAT-XLPD.PKG_XCP_RPT_CNY_CD, TECSDAT-XLPD.PKG_TCK_NR, TECSDAT-XLPD.PKG_XCP_RSN_CD, TECSDAT-XLPD.SHR_AC_NR FROM TECSDAT-XLPD", ODBCConnectionString, adopenstatic, adlockoptimistic

Thanks everyone! Ended up being t."fieldname" - I think its a table alias problem
