How to see query created by Zend DB Adapter

For debugging purposes, how do you print the query Zend_DB makes for you. I did not find it in the docs.
For example if I get an sql error when running this code below. how can I dump the statement it is using to help see what I hosed.

$data = array('FNAME' => 'test name',);
$where = "ID = '14'" ;
$n = $db->update("tablename", $data, $where);

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use Zend_Db_Profiler (

Enable the profiler prior to executing your query:


After calling your update() method, you can use the profiler to view the query:

echo $db->getProfiler()->getLastQueryProfile()->getQuery();

You should disable the query profiler when it is not needed as it will create an overhead.

Hope this helps!
