toad error ORA-00904:

I am using 11g 11.2.02.0 and toad 10.6;

When I select the data tab, on table ACCOUNT_CUSTOMER_ADDRESS, I get a toad error ORA-00904: “USER_ID_CHG_BY¿”: invalid identifier; Following is the SQL thru SQL monitor ; This is not happening always but often on many tables.

I do not see no errors with Ora 9 database.
SQL PLUS is fine too;

Timestamp: 09:35:02.704
Select * from SYS.DBA_COL_PRIVS where OWNER = :own
and TABLE_NAME = :OneObjectName
ORDER BY grantee, OWNER, table_name, column_name, privilege
o = ‘W’
O = ‘A’

What version is your Oracle Client?

Can you give us a DDL of the ACCOUNT_CUSTOMER_ADDRESS table?

I see funny characters like “???” in the column names in your output.
Do these column names have unicode character in them?

Ed is right to ask about Oracle Client version. We have seen this with older
clients. Try a newer Oracle client (preferably 11g) and I think the problem will
disappear.
