Hello.

I am trying to use an open query on InterSystems Caché through a linked server.


SELECT  *

FROM OPENQUERY([LinkedServer], 'SELECT * from Table')

error

OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "INQUIRE" returned message "[Cache ODBC][State : 37000][Native Code 1]
[C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.BISQL02\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe]
[SQLCODE: <-1>:<Invalid SQL statement>]
[Cache Error: <<SYNTAX>errdone+2^%qaqqt>]
[Details: <Prepare>]
[%msg: < SQL ERROR #1: IDENTIFIER expected, [ found^SELECT [ AccidentCode ] from [>]".
Msg 7321, Level 16, State 2, Line 4
An error occurred while preparing the query "SELECT [AccidentCode] from [ADMITDISCH]" for execution against OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "INQUIRE".

1. You need to include the schema name as well as the table.

Here's an example of a working query:
select * from openquery(kbsql_XXXX,'Select count(*) from R.MEDRECS_HISTORY')

Open in new window


Which version of the ODBC driver to you have and is it 32bit or 64bit?

hi aneilg, sorry I didn't quite understand your last comment or close request reason...

select * from openquery(kbsql_XXX,'Select * from r.tablename')

...does work (provided that the meta-data is correct in the data dictionary for that table).
