Hi Geoff,

I'm afraid this does not make sense to me. I have tried this query in 3 

1) under ij
2) from a java program connecting to an embedded Derby database
3) from a java program connecting over the network to a Derby database 
hosted in a Derby server

The query works for me in all situations. I suspect that your query 
generator is building bad query text. If you look in derby.log you 
should be able to find the query text which Derby is rejecting. That may 
help you track down the problem.

Hope this helps,
