Hi,

 

I am running a SQL below which seems to run fine in Toad but gives me an Data Wrap OCI : Unable to prepare query error what could be wrong with the query

Hi @Nilisha1, can you try run chunks of your query in Alteryx and see where does it breakdown? Also, give the CASE statement section of your code a column alias. E.g. 

AbhilashR_0-1593997162046.png

Toad is a bit forgiving if we don't give explicit column names, while Alteryx is a bit more strict.

Hi,

 

Thanks for that but it did not work.

I would urge you to try and run sections of your SQL in the Input tool to help identify the issue.
