the error you are getting looks like to me that you screwed up your query.  However, try this if you are trying to open a table 

 

odbc query database_name  * this will list you all the tables in database

odbc desc table1    * this will open up the table and I am hoping this is what you are looking for

 

if you want to run, 

 

 

odbc query database_name

odbc load, exec("your query goes here")

 

 

Good luck,

Tashi
