when i do a select I get 1 row returned.

select * from holdings where SITE = 'TAT' AND DB_INSERTED > to_date('03-NOV-11','DD-MON-RR') AND NOT EXISTS (SELECT holding_id from WS_RECORD ws WHERE HOLDINGS.ID = HOLDING_ID);

But when I try to insert that row into another table I get an error

INSERT INTO WS_RECORD (HOLDING_ID, TITLE) SELECT ID, TITLE FROM HOLDINGS BH WHERE SITE = 'TAT' AND DB_INSERTED > to_date('03-NOV-11','DD-MON-RR') AND NOT EXISTS (SELECT holding_id from WS_STI_RECORD where HOLDINGS.ID =
HOLDING_ID);

When I run this, I get the following error:
SQL Error: ORA-00904: "HOLDINGS"."ID": invalid identifier
00904. 00000 -  "%s: invalid identifier"

If I include the holdings table in my subquery at the end

(SELECT holding_id from WS_RECORD ws, HOLDINGS bh where bh.ID =
ws.HOLDING_ID);

I get no rows returned. How do i change the insert so that it inserts the same record I get for my select statement?
