I'm trying to create a view in postgresql so that my Zen dFramework app can query it.

I get the following error

ERROR:  column "name" specified more than once

I'm not quite sure what my options are to fix the problem.





CREATE VIEW "v_itemshort" AS SELECT "public"."t_item_types"."name",
 "public"."t_items"."id", "public"."t_items"."serial", "public"."t_items"."nickname",
 "public"."t_sites"."name", "public"."t_status"."name"
 
 FROM "public"."t_items" INNER JOIN "public"."t_status"
 
 ON ("public"."t_items"."status_id" = "public"."t_status"."id")
 
 INNER JOIN "public"."t_sites"
 
 ON ("public"."t_items"."site_id" = "public"."t_sites"."id")
 
 INNER JOIN "public"."t_item_types" ON ("public"."t_items"."type_id" = "public"."t_item_types"."id")

Hello Friend
The Error is Correct as you have specified the name column thrice while creating your view and therefore the error is, IN case of this you have to give an alias to the other two name columns you specify while creating your view, as the view you have shown may be the correct format should be as follows:
CREATE VIEW "v_itemshort" AS 
SELECT "public"."t_item_types"."name",
 "public"."t_items"."id", "public"."t_items"."serial", "public"."t_items"."nickname",
 "public"."t_sites"."name" As Name1, "public"."t_status"."name" As Name2
 
 FROM "public"."t_items"
 INNER JOIN "public"."t_status" ON ("public"."t_items"."status_id" = "public"."t_status"."id")
 
 INNER JOIN "public"."t_sites" ON ("public"."t_items"."site_id" = "public"."t_sites"."id")
 
 INNER JOIN "public"."t_item_types" ON ("public"."t_items"."type_id" = "public"."t_item_types"."id")
