Dynamic SQL Error
-SQL error code = -104

I believe I am using dialect 1 for the connection...

However that got me testing...

SQL> set sql dialect 3;
WARNING: Client SQL dialect has been set to 3 when connecting to Database SQL dialect 1 database.
SQL> select count(*) from "CASE";




Apparently using dialect 3 for the connection to a dialect 1 box works fine!
