ORA-00904 Invalid Identifier.


Applies to: SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, Oracle 9i

 

Problem Description.
 

In SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, we have set up an Oracle linked server, but when we run a query with OPENQUERY, the following error shows up:

OLE DB provider "MSDAORA" for linked server "ODBCDataSource" returned message "ORA-00904: : invalid identifier".


Cause.

There could be many causes for this error message, but here you will find three of them:

1) The login used for creating the linked server to the Oracle database needs permissions on one of the objects involved in the query.

2) The query may include a Oracle function that ODBC is not able to handle.

3) There is a column name either missing or invalid.
