I had this working on my local computer but when switching it over to the server it is failing with the following error:

Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid.
ERROR 000793: Invalid data element type
ERROR 000840: The value is not a Raster Layer.
Failed to execute (MakeQueryTable).

I think is has something to do with the OLE DB connection...when I open the connection in arcCatalog it takes a longgggg time to open. Maybe it is timing out in the script and thus that is why it is failing? I have included my code below too.

    tableList = ["DATABASE CONNECTIONS/prod.odc/sales"]
    fieldList = ["",'id']
    whereClause = "sales.CREATED_DATE between to_date(sysdate, 'DD-MON-YYYY') AND SYSDATE"
    keyField = ""
    lyrName = "live_sales"
    #Create the spatial reference for the output layer.
    sr = arcpy.SpatialReference("WGS 1984 UTM Zone 12N")
    # Create a query layer
    arcpy.MakeQueryTable_management(tableList, lyrName,"USE_KEY_FIELDS", keyField, fieldList, whereClause)
     # save the created query layer
    arcpy.SaveToLayerFile_management(lyrName,"I:/sales.lyr", "ABSOLUTE")
# Print the total rows
    print arcpy.GetCount_management(lyrName)

Thanks in advance!
