It looks to me like the parser is thinking that "a.cus_code >= ?"
must represent application of a suffix operator '>=' followed by
application of another suffix operator '?'. Which is indeed about
the only way it could make any sense of the expression.
I assume you were expecting something to get substituted for the '?'
marks before the query is submitted, but it evidently didn't happen ...
