After configuring the Database Gateway for ODBC (DG4ODBC) to connect to a Sybase Database using the native Sybase ODBC driver issuing a SELECT returns the following error:

SQL> select * from "sysobjects"@SYBODBC;
select * from "sysobjects"@SYBODBC
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28500: connection from ORACLE to a non-Oracle system returned this message:
[SAP][ASE ODBC Driver][Adaptive Server Enterprise]Incorrect syntax near the
keyword 'where'.
{ZZZZZ,NativeErr = 156}
ORA-02063: preceding 3 lines from SYBODBC

The select statement works successfully when using isql to connect to the same Sybase database
