Any parameter binding error SQL Server 2012 R2

I'm connecting to SQL Server 2012 R2.

I have a simple query in a data window with a single argument serial_no. When I do a retrieve on the datawindow and enter a value 16299, and run the query I get an error invalid character ':'. when I look at the trace log, the data window has not resolved the argument to the value 16299. I have tried this with Ole DB connection, ADO connection, and SNC SQL Native. I have also tried setting parameters in the connection DisableBind and BindSPInput both 0 and 1. No change. Am I supposed to use a different character like ? or @ instead of colon : ??

Query:

SELECT batch_weight_history.serial_no, batch_weight_history.quantity_required, batch_weight_history.quantity_weighted, batch_weight_history.material_id, batch_weight_history.hand_add, batch_weight_history.batch_no, ABS(batch_no) FROM batch_weight_history WHERE ( BATCH_WEIGHT_HISTORY.SERIAL_NO = :serial_no ) and ( BATCH_WEIGHT_HISTORY.BATCH_NO < 0 )

Trace Log:

/*---------------------------------------------------*/ /* 10/17/2017 18:16 */ /*---------------------------------------------------*/ (00F38EA0): DIALOG CONNECT TO TRACE SNC SQL NATIVE CLIENT(OLE DB): (00F38EA0): LOGID=cgt (00F38EA0): SERVER=CGTSVR-DB (00F38EA0): DBPARM=Provider='SQLNCLI11',Database='CGT',BindSPInput=1,ProviderString='DisableBind=0'

    looks like the error comes from "= :serial_no"

    You can try for example enable SQL Profiler trace and check what is the exact statement is sent to SQL Server.

    SQL Server parameters have a "@" character, e.g. @p1

    Hi Jason,

    The dbparm should be like this :

    SQLCA.DBParm = "Database='easdemodb',Provider='SQLNCLI11',BindSPInput=1"

    HTH.

    Abdallah.
