I have the following SQL statement which looks a two databases in two different alias's.

The first table "Version" is in a paradox alias called "cust".

The second table "Versions" is in a paradox alias called "Cust_control".

The Version_type=Version_id links the records in each of the databases.

select Version,version_desc from :cust:version, :cust_control:versions
where Cust_id="47359"
and version_type=version_id

This SQL correctly works within Database explorer, but if I try to run the same statement within an SQL component in delphi I get the error "Invalid use of keyword. token:?, "

Can anyone help me please?

select * from
::AliasName1::Tablename1 t1,::AliasName2::Tablename2 t2
where t1.field = t2.field

do not provide a databasename in your query-property

Brilliant!

Didn't realise that two sets of colons are required in the Delphi components.

Thankyou.
