This code works fine if I replace the $s variable in the value being assigned to the $query variable with a valid site. The echo at the beginning of the foreach statement works correctly.

Looking at the apache error log I see the following:

[Mon Oct 26 16:16:36 2009] [error] [client] PHP Warning: oci_execute() [<a href='function.oci-execute'>function.oci-execute</a>]: ORA-00911: invalid character in C:\\htmlroot\\reports\\dailyoperationssummary.php on line 75, referer:

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping this is just a stupid coding error on my part.

Line #68. You try to add the variable $s directly into the string, but because it is a single-quoted string, it isn't parsed and reads as an invalid character in the query.

Replace it with this and you should be fine.

and t1.site_no='. $s .'

Alternatively, you could use heredoc syntax, which would allow you to use single and double quotes without escaping them, and to add variables directly:

$string = <<<SQL
SELECT randomThings
FROM someTable
  someField = '$someData';

Note: The <<<SQL and SQL; delimiters must appear EXACTLY like they are there, with no spaces, tabs, or any white-space on either side of them!
You can change the keyword tho. The SQL part.

Perfect for long SQL queries or HTML markup ;-)

Thank you very much for your help I am new to this and I appreciate the assistance. I figured it was a stupid mistake.
