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 "+

sql = "Select A.AssetNo, A.Currency, A.BuyPrice, A.SellPrice, A.NavPrice from  tblUTDISPLIST As A "+
                          "where A.id = "+
                          "("+
                          "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.

Best regards

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
