I have the following sql statement in my program.
sql =  “SELECT  null as ID, '- Select Team -' as Team Union Select ID, Team from Team where ID in(2,3,4) order by Team”
I am trying to make it to work in Oracle but with no luck.  Please advice.  Thanks!

1     null      - Select Team -
2      1         TeamA
3      2         TeamB
