When you say "running it manually", do you mean in a SQL tool of some kind? Are you logging into isql using the same credentials? My initial instinct, especially if the SQL runs okay (aside from not returning anything) is that you're lacking some permissions that your SQL user has but the user you're using for isql does not.

I am guessing that you are missing "go" at the end.
