find the colon ":" in your code and replace with the value that you want... I'm guessing you copied SQL from some programming code and pasted in a SQL program?

Sorry just realized that your problem is actually the contrary; you are binding more than you are using...
post some of your code..  <----
What you have done is, for example, bound 3 values, but used only 2, example:
:1 = 'test'
:2 = 'myvar'
:3 = 'oracle'
and your SELECT is:
SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE field1 = :1 and field2 = :2 and field3 = 'oracle'
when it should be:
SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE field1 = :1 AND field2 = :2 AND field3 = :3
or remove the extra bind...
