What is the syntax of adding C++ variables into mySQL?
Could anyone raise an example?
I've tried
insert into aTable (field1, field2) values (variable1, variable2)
But mySQL throws error messages at me saying varible1 is not in the field list.
Thanks for your attention

Hi madwax,
Are you sure? :)
'var2' inserts the string 'var2' into the database, not the its variable representation
It returns duplicate entry right after the second insert.... :)
Thanks

int var2 = 3;

Insert into table1 (field1, field2) values (var2, 'hello')

hi luckie, i guess you mean something like this;


int var0 = 0;
int var1 = 20;

char pszSql[ 200 ];
char pszBuffer[ 10 ];

// put the base into the sql-string
strcpy( pszSQL, "insert into aTable (field1, field2) values (" );
// convert var0 into a string
sprintf( pszBuffer, "%d", var0 );
// add converted var0 to sql-string
strcat( pszSQL, pszBuffer );
strcat( pszSQL, "," );
// convert var1 into a string
sprintf( pszBuffer, "%d", var1 );
// add converted var1 to sql-string
strcat( pszSQL, pszBuffer );
strcat( pszSQL, ")" );


now you have your sql-string, hope it helps a bit ...

good luck ;-)

Wait a minute... I've got a question...:O
How come when the field and the variables are both of type integer, why do you need to convert them into varchars. As in my database, they are of integer types.
Thanks for any attempt for solving my question

rc = SQLExecDirect (hstmt, (SQLCHAR *) "INSERT INTO aTable (a,b,...  )  values (var1, '10',  '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '','', '', c);", SQL_NTS);
mystmt (hstmt, rc);


where var1 is already a character pointer (C String)
and c is a stored procedure containing binary data.
Thanks
