Hi,

I tried this in the JSP:

sql = "Select A.AssetNo, A.Currency, A.BuyPrice, A.SellPrice, A.NavPrice from  tblUTDISPLIST A "+
        "where A.id = "+
        "("+
        "select max(B.ID) from tblUTDISPLIST B where B.assetno = A.assetno "+
        ")";
ps2 = conn.prepareStatement(sql);
rs2 = ps2.executeQuery();

It returns the error: java.sql.SQLException: Invalid column name

But why when i querying it via SQLPlus there is not error occurs? What's wrong with my code?

sql = "Select A.AssetNo, A.Currency, A.BuyPrice, A.SellPrice, A.NavPrice from  tblUTDISPLIST A "+

This line is missing and "AS" keyword:

sql = "Select A.AssetNo, A.Currency, A.BuyPrice, A.SellPrice, A.NavPrice from  tblUTDISPLIST AS A "+

Oops.  So is this one:

>>       "select max(B.ID) from tblUTDISPLIST B where B.assetno = A.assetno "+

       "select max(B.ID) from tblUTDISPLIST AS B where B.assetno = A.assetno "+

                          "("+
                          "select max(B.ID) from tblUTDISPLIST As B where B.assetno = A.assetno "+
                          ")";

Hmm.  On MySQL, I get a syntax error with the "select max..." line.  I don't think MySQL can handle the nested select.

Other than that, I can't see anything else wrong with this (though I'm no SQL expert!).

You can type this line in at a prompt and it works OK?

Problem resolved, actually there is nothing wrong with the SQL statement above! But it's something typo error on other parts. My bad... I must be very stressful recently doing multiple applications..

FYI, above is connect to an Oracle database, not MySQL

Sorry about that, will ask a question at CS to delete this question. Thanks for trying to help, jimmack, cheers

Unfortunately, no luck in Oracle. I got an error when try add "As" in the query in sqlplus, that's why i remove the "As" :-)

Are you know PL/SQL well, jimmack? Also can take a look on my other question. Damn! i need solve it asap.

Oh.. if no objection, i will post a request at CS to delete this question, is this fine with you?

cheers

I'm afraid my knowledge of SQL is fairly limited.  I have recently had a similar problem to yours, where a complex query was involved, but I solved it programmatically.

If you want to delete this question, I don't have any problems with that ;-)

Hi Jimmack.

>>For my information, does that SQL line work with out "As" keywords?

For your information. On Oracle Does not work the "AS" KeyWord it has to be without it.
