Lexical error when selecting data with date value in where clause


Hello, I'm attempting to execute the attached statement but keep getting the following error:

ERROR [3700] [AR System ODBC Driver]Expected lexical element not found: )

If I remove the date parameter the query executes propely. What do I need to do in order to refine my select statement to include date?
Dim RemedyLast As String = "2011-10-04 13:36:02.107"
        Dim tsdate = "{ ts '" + Format$(RemedyLast, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.ff") + "' }"

        ' Set up query string
        Dim CmdString As String = "SELECT ""Contact Name"", ""Contact Phone"", ""Create-date"", ""Div."", ""ETA Timestamp"", """ & _
        "Last-modified-by"", ""Modified-date"", ""Onsite Timestamp"", Priority, ""Problem Descr" & _
        "iption"", ""Record-Id"", Resolution, ""Service Status"", ""Site ID"", Status, ""Symptom " & _
        "Type"", ""Vendor Name"", ""Vendor Notify Timestamp"", ""Budget Line Item #"", ""Bill to " & _
        "Account #"", Log, ""Critical Notes"" FROM ISD ISD WHERE ((""Vendor Name"" = 'me') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-l') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-mn') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-tn')) AND (""Modif" & _
        "ied-date"" >= " + tsdate + " )"

Can you try
Dim RemedyLast As String = "2011-10-04 13:36:02.107"
        Dim tsdate = "{ ts '" + Format$(RemedyLast, "yyyy-MM-dd HH24:mm:ss.ff") + "' }"

        ' Set up query string
        Dim CmdString As String = "SELECT ""Contact Name"", ""Contact Phone"", ""Create-date"", ""Div."", ""ETA Timestamp"", """ & _
        "Last-modified-by"", ""Modified-date"", ""Onsite Timestamp"", Priority, ""Problem Descr" & _
        "iption"", ""Record-Id"", Resolution, ""Service Status"", ""Site ID"", Status, ""Symptom " & _
        "Type"", ""Vendor Name"", ""Vendor Notify Timestamp"", ""Budget Line Item #"", ""Bill to " & _
        "Account #"", Log, ""Critical Notes"" FROM ISD ISD WHERE ((""Vendor Name"" = 'me') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-l') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-mn') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-tn')) AND (""Modif" & _
        "ied-date"" >= " + tsdate + " )"

Instead of using ODBC drivers, I guess you should be using ODP.NET drivers when using Oracle with .NET

Can you please remove date condition and check if your query is working fine...

May be this?
Dim RemedyLast As String = "2011-10-04 13:36:02.107"
        Dim tsdate = "{ ts '" + Format$(RemedyLast, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.fff") + "' }"

        ' Set up query string
        Dim CmdString As String = "SELECT ""Contact Name"", ""Contact Phone"", ""Create-date"", ""Div."", ""ETA Timestamp"", """ & _
        "Last-modified-by"", ""Modified-date"", ""Onsite Timestamp"", Priority, ""Problem Descr" & _
        "iption"", ""Record-Id"", Resolution, ""Service Status"", ""Site ID"", Status, ""Symptom " & _
        "Type"", ""Vendor Name"", ""Vendor Notify Timestamp"", ""Budget Line Item #"", ""Bill to " & _
        "Account #"", Log, ""Critical Notes"" FROM ISD ISD WHERE ((""Vendor Name"" = 'me') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-l') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-mn') or (""Vendor Name"" = 'me-tn'))

Yes, that does work, but as soon as we try to use date in the where condition if fails with the lexical error.

ajexpertCommented:
Can you please tell us if you are storing fraction of seconds also in modified_date?

gogetsomeAuthor Commented:
The dates contain:

2011-10-04 13:36:02.107
0
 
ajexpertCommented:
You have to include TO_CHAR(MODIFIED-DATE, 'yyyy-MM-dd HH24:MI:SS.FF3') in the query

Yes, the date must be converted! Thank you for your assistance.
