Splunk DB Connect 2: Why am I getting errors if I set up dblookup in editor mode with a WHERE in the SQL command?

If I set up db lookup in editor mode with [where] command, I will get an error when I use the db lookup.
SQL Command

SELECT XXX FROM  WHERE XXX IS NOT NULL

Search

index=test |lookup db_connect_dblookup2 XXX AS XXX

Error

ERROR ScriptRunner - stderr from 'D:\Splunk\bin\PYTHON.EXE D:\Splunk\etc\apps\splunk_app_db_connect\bin\dbxlookup.py dblookup2':  Traceback (most recent call last):

If there is not a where command, it works. Is it a bug?

If it's a bug caused by the WHERE clause a possible workaround would be to use your query as a n SQL temporary table:

SELECT * FROM (SELECT XXX FROM  WHERE XXX IS NOT NULL) as tmp
