hello,

i get this error msg in QA [SQL2000 sp3a]

Server: Msg 107, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The column prefix 'MSM_SVCCALLTABLE' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.

what does this mean??? i am not sure

this is the query i am trying to run...


SELECT     MSM_SVCCALLTABLE.PROJID AS Expr1, MSM_SVCCALLTABLE.CALLLEVEL AS Expr2, PROJTABLE.PROJID, PROJTABLE.STATUS
FROM         PROJTABLE INNER JOIN
                      MSM_SVCCALLTABLE ON PROJTABLE.PROJID = MSM_SVCCALLTABLE.PROJID
update projtable
set status = '4'
WHERE     (MSM_SVCCALLTABLE.CALLLEVEL = 7)



tables = msm_svccalltable, projtable
fields = msm_svccalltable - projid, calllevel
           projtable.projid, status

any ideas ????

thanks!

QA sees your code as first a SELECT statement, then an UPDATE statement, and tries to execute one after the other. The error is generated by the UPDATE statement, because it refers to the MSM_SVCCALLTABLE table without including it in a FROM clause. You didn't describe what you want your UPDATE to do, but I'm guessing this is your intention:

UPDATE projtable SET status = '4'
FROM PROJTABLE INNER JOIN MSM_SVCCALLTABLE ON PROJTABLE.PROJID = MSM_SVCCALLTABLE.PROJID
WHERE MSM_SVCCALLTABLE.CALLLEVEL = 7

BTW, if you're not familiar with it, one of QA's zillion excellent features is that you can select (highlight) any portion of code in the main window and tell it to execute (F5 or the green arrow button) and it will execute only that portion of code that's selected. It's a huge time-saver in troubleshooting T-SQL.

Another BTW, you can use aliases on table names, to avoid having to retype the whole name over and over. For example, the query I posted above can be modified to:

UPDATE p SET status = '4'
FROM PROJTABLE p
 INNER JOIN MSM_SVCCALLTABLE m ON p.PROJID = m.PROJID
WHERE m.CALLLEVEL = 7
