The DUAL actually works in the query; changing 1 to a fake column name parses correctly.
Sorry, I should've been more specific. Yes, any table name will parse OK, as will omitting the FROM clause entirely. I meant to indicate that you shouldn't rely on DUAL being supported by any underlying specialization.

(Teradata ? As I live and breathe, I never expected to encounter someone on PM who actually knows what a Teradata is...)

    The good thing is, I don't need them to run; I already know they do since they are in a production level environment. I may end up just grepping the data out of the queries since I don't really need the joins to work or anything of that nature; just the statement structures were exactly what I was looking for.

    And as for Teradata... not my choice; seriously. We're just a reporting environment. :)
