I get the following error on one of my templates.  History is a table in the Contacts datasource and Contacts is a table in the Contacts datasource.  The area in question is the invalid object name.  My CF datasouces are just fine in the CF admin.
-----------------------------------------

Error Executing Database Query.  
[Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][ODBC Socket][Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Invalid object name 'History'.  
 
The error occurred in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\CCL\Contacts\Summary.cfm: line 6

Also, I had backed up these MS SQL Server databases and then restored them after reinstalling SQL Server and CF.

this is your sql

SELECT (select max(History.HistoryID)
from History
where History.RefID = Contacts.ID), Contacts.ID, Contacts.FirstName, Contacts.MiddleName, Contacts.LastName, Contacts.Company, Contacts.Email, History.Method, History.ContactedBy, History.Comments, History.RefID, History.LastContact, History.NextContact
FROM Contacts LEFT OUTER JOIN History ON Contacts.ID = History.RefID
WHERE HistoryID = (select max(History.HistoryID) from History where History.RefID = Contacts.ID) OR History.HistoryID IS NULL
GROUP BY History.HistoryID, Contacts.ID, Contacts.FirstName, Contacts.MiddleName, Contacts.LastName, Contacts.Company, Contacts.Email, History.Method, History.ContactedBy, History.Comments, History.RefID, History.LastContact, History.NextContact
HAVING HISTORY.LastContact < DateAdd(Week,-2,GetDate()) ORDER BY Company ASC  


i think it should be

SELECT History.HistoryID,Contacts.ID, Contacts.FirstName, Contacts.MiddleName, Contacts.LastName, Contacts.Company, Contacts.Email, History.Method, History.ContactedBy, History.Comments, History.RefID, History.LastContact, History.NextContact
FROM Contacts LEFT OUTER JOIN History ON Contacts.ID = History.RefID
WHERE HistoryID = (select max(History.HistoryID) from History where History.RefID = Contacts.ID) OR History.HistoryID IS NULL
GROUP BY History.HistoryID, Contacts.ID, Contacts.FirstName, Contacts.MiddleName, Contacts.LastName, Contacts.Company, Contacts.Email, History.Method, History.ContactedBy, History.Comments, History.RefID, History.LastContact, History.NextContact
HAVING HISTORY.LastContact < DateAdd(Week,-2,GetDate()) ORDER BY Company ASC

This exact SQL query worked fine before I reinstalled everything.

I ran this whole query in SQL Enterprise Manager and it returned exactly what it was supposed to return.  It works fine there.

The other thing I did was try to add this as a stored procedure in SQL but when I comment out the query and add the following line, I get an error:

LINE:
<cfstoredproc datasource="Contacts" procedure="HistorySummary"></cfstoredproc>

ERROR:
Error Executing Database Query.  
[Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][ODBC Socket][Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Could not find stored procedure 'HistorySummary'.  
 
The error occurred in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\CCL\Contacts\Summary.cfm: line 20
 
18 : </cfquery>
19 : --->
20 : <cfstoredproc datasource="Contacts" procedure="HistorySummary"></cfstoredproc>
21 :
22 : <html>

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SQL   {call HistorySummary}
DATASOURCE   Contacts

are you sure that the database has been set upt in cfadmin, it seems as though the databse reference in cfadmin is targeting another schema, it finds the database but not the objects

Okay, I fixed it.  I had to redo the ODBC Socket and remove/recreate the datasource in ColdFusion.  

Thanks Jester!
