Crystal Report Formula issue

Posted on 2011-09-02
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have the following simple formula:
SELECT document_image.ID 'FROM DocM.document_image document_image
I keep getting this error and highlights this field is a string:
'A number, currency amount, boolean, date, time, date-time, or string is expected here.'

Any help greatly appreciated
