runtime error when try to write in a external Oracle Database

Hi Abapers,

We are tryng to make some updates to external oracle databases. We are in a new project and we are new in theses issues so we are asking for your help.

We have the following source code


CONCATENATE 'insert into' c_tabname INTO teste1 SEPARATED BY space.

MOVE: 'VALUES' to teste2,

'(6, 4, 5, 99, TO_DATE(20020102,YYYY.MM.DD), 3, 5)' to teste3.

CONCATENATE teste1 teste2 teste3 INTO l_stmt SEPARATED BY space.

l_prepstmt_ref = p_con_ref->prepare_statement( l_stmt ).


We get teh following error

con=2( ORA-01036: illegal variable name/number

the table has, in the external database the following structure








Can you give some information about what we are doing wrong?

Thank you and best regards

João Fernandes

    First check the DB connection if that is defined in ST04. Check the demo program DEMO_ADBC_QUERY should give you a good idea on whats missing in the statement. The idea is the Query should be exactly same as per Oracle Syntax and supplied as string.
