    [Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]ORA-00911: invalid character

    Hello,

    I am receiving an invalid character error message when I attempt to execute the SQL below in my VBA application(db is Oracle 9i). Oddly enough, I can get this SQL to execute in TOAD without any warnings or errors. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It would help if you knew what part of the query had an issue. Run this and if it works add in something else and try again. Then keep adding parts of the query and running it until you see what is causing the issue.

    I would guess that the error relates to a substring.
    But why guess when you can prove it.

    Code:
    SELECT RTRIM(a.trial_schema,'UID') AS SCHEMA_NAME
       FROM rptimport.consolidated_cdisc_errors a 
     WHERE 1=0;
    this space intentionally left blank

    Removing the ";" solved the issue. Thanks.
