Hi,

I want to do a select into a 2 tables.
I'am using VB5 and ODBC with SYBASE database. The purpose of my program is  to do a cgi.
To do the select, i'am using a recordset. When i opening this recordset i use INNER JOIN to do the join between tables.
But when the command run, i have this error :
Erreur de syntaxe dans la clause FROM. Error Number =  3131

The sql string is :
"SELECT nr FROM products INNER JOIN text_attribute WHERE products.nr = text_attribute.productnr;"

Somebody can help me ?
Thanks

1. a select is FROM and not INTO.
2. INNER JOIN must be ON something, oterwise it will be OUTER, isn't it?
3. first complete the join part (it's syntax is currently incorrect and you got a message for it, and this is no excuse to add a comment to justify why you write bad SQL)
4. try to use table name preceding the field names (also in the JOIN you should write and the WHERE)
5. find out what ODBC error 3146 means. (clue: ODBC trace)

Try this

SELECT nr FROM products INNER JOIN text_attribute ON products.nr = text_attribute.productnr

Assuming that you have field 'nr' in 'products' table contains the same information as field 'productnr' in 'text_attribute' table.

Ok the syntaxe of my SQL was not correct but the problem doesnt concern the SQL statment.
After some diagnostics, i have found that the odbc user havent grant to select the table "text_attribute".
