I'm having a lot of trouble getting my SQL queries to work with an ODBC connection even though they work from Access when linking the ODBC tables. I know Access uses JET, but what standard does ODBC use? I have the ODBC DSN setup on my Windows 2003 Data Sources. Is there a standard that all ODBC SQL queries should work. None of my complicated queries work, like nested SELECT statements with table aliases. I appreciate any help in helping me find some guidelines to follow.

It will depend on your database provider. Oracle will behave differently than MSSQL will. Do you have a specific example of something that isn't working?

I guess what I'm trying to ask is a list of differences between SQL syntaxes.. even if it's for a list of which syntax each database uses. I know that the propietary ODBC datasource we have is ANSI sql. MS SQL server uses T-SQL and Oracle uses something else and I'm sure there are more. My problem is that the syntax varies a bit and wanted to know which ones are out there.

I doubt there's one single place that would list all the differences. In some cases, differences are very big, in other cases they are small and subtle.
