I'm using MS SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC in JSP. When I use the following SQL statements in my JSP page, It retrieves incorrect results from the database. My statement like this:

SELECT DISTINCT table1.field1, table2.field2 FROM table1
          INNER JOIN table2 ON table1.fieldX=table2.fieldX
          INNER JOIN table3 ON table2.fieldY=table3.fieldY
          INNER JOIN table4 ON table3.fieldZ=table4.fieldZ

I use MS SQL Profiler to trace the running of my statement, I find that an asterisk (*) is added into the field list like this:

SELECT DISTINCT table1.field1, table2.field2, * FROM table1
          INNER JOIN table2 ON table1.fieldX=table2.fieldX
          INNER JOIN table3 ON table2.fieldY=table3.fieldY
          INNER JOIN table4 ON table3.fieldZ=table4.fieldZ

I'm really stuck. Plz help.

Can you post the error?

I'm sure that's not the real query. I might be able to see what's wrong if you show us the real one, must likely your query has problem.

The following is my sql statement :

SELECT DISTINCT corporation.corporationId, county.countyName, town.townName
FROM corporation
INNER JOIN town ON corporation.townId=town.townId
INNER JOIN county ON town.countyId=county.countyId
INNER JOIN corporationAttribute ON corporation.attrId=corporationAttribute.attrId
INNER JOIN corporationType ON corporationAttribute.typeId=corporationType.typeId
INNER JOIN region ON county.regionId=region.regionId
WHERE region.regionId='1' AND corporationType.typeId='1'

It should return:
corporationId countyName    townName
  1           Cangzhou      Qingxian
  2           Cangzhou      Mengcun

But the results my application returns:
corporationId countyName    townName
  1           Cangzhou      Qingxian
  1           Cangzhou      Qingxian
  1           Cangzhou      Qingxian
  1           Cangzhou      Qingxian
  2           Cangzhou      Mengcun
  2           Cangzhou      Mengcun
  2           Cangzhou      Mengcun
  2           Cangzhou      Mengcun

I found that my statements has been changed to the following:

SELECT DISTINCT corporation.corporationId, county.countyName, town.townName, *
FROM corporation
INNER JOIN town ON corporation.townId=town.townId
INNER JOIN county ON town.countyId=county.countyId
INNER JOIN corporationAttribute ON corporation.attrId=corporationAttribute.attrId
INNER JOIN corporationType ON corporationAttribute.typeId=corporationType.typeId
INNER JOIN region ON county.regionId=region.regionId
WHERE region.regionId='1' AND corporationType.typeId='1'

And so do all the other sql statements.
