Hello all. I have the following code in a partial. It's purpose is to
create a dropdown box with a bunch of values in it for display purposes

(@bugsheet is an instance variable being used by the partial)

<%= select("bugclientlink", "bug_id",

Given the fact that Bugclientlink class contains:

def self.listclients( reference )
    result = Bugclientlink.find_by_sql["select client_ref from
bugclientlink         where bug_id = ?", reference ]
    result.push('99999', '                 '))

Can anyone tell me why is it giving me the following error?

Many thanks in advance, I am sure it is something simple I am missing
(The joys of being a nub!)
