Hi Guys !


I have made a database importation, all was okay !

Then i started a server who added some items in my DB, but now when i want to see which items i have in my database and i click on any table of my DB, i have this error :

SELECT tracking_active FROM . WHERE db_name = 'dol'  AND table_name = 'ability'  ORDER BY version DESC


Please someone has an idea ?

I changed the root password.

Is this SQL Server or MySQL? You've posted in both areas.

You might try this:
SELECT tracking_active FROM dol.ability ORDER BY version DESC

In MySQL the FROM clause can use the format DBNAME.TABLENAME
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/select.html

You can also explicitly SELECT the data base by name.  If you have the "dol" data base selected, your query might work this way.
SELECT tracking_active FROM ability ORDER BY version DESC

I could be wrong, but I believe it is in the title.  :)

But yes, since this has nothing to do with MS SQL Server, that topic should be dropped.

Please test the query I posted and let us know if it worked.  There are a lot of moving parts to PHP + MySQL.  If you want to show us the PHP code that sets up  your test case (the SSCCE) it might be easier to give assistance.

If you want a good learning resource to help you get started with PHP and MySQL, I can recommend this book.  Now in its fifth printing it has been a permanent part of my professional library since Edition One.  Good examples, very readable and it comes with a downloadable code library you can copy and modify for your own needs.

Please see the grading guidelines:

Please explain why you did not respond to my last request and why you gave a marked-down grade?  I don't understand what was wrong with my efforts to help you.

Thanks, ~Ray
