Parameter 'API' is required error

  • I have:

    local OracleMod = require “OracleMod”
    function main(data)
    local conn = connectOracle(‘T01291.WORLD’,’V500_RPT’,’REPORT’)
    conn.query{sql=”SELECT COLUMN_NAME FROM DBA_TAB_COLUMNS WHERE TABLE_NAME = ‘PERSON'”}
    end

    My module is:

    function connectOracle(vInstance, vUserid, vPassword)
    local conn = db.connect{api=db.ORACLE_OCI,name=vInstance,user=vUserid,password=vPassword,live=true }
    return conn
    end

    When I execute, I get the “Parameter ‘api’ is required” error. , since I am not passing it in, and hard coding it, why am i getting th is error?

    Found it

    conn:query{sql=”SELECT COLUMN_NAME FROM DBA_TAB_COLUMNS WHERE TABLE_NAME = ‘PERSON'”}

    I had conn.query, which worked while it was in Main(), but the : notation is used in modules, from what I can figure out.
