Transitioning to PDO/MySQL.  Need help  with CSV import error

Posted on 2014-12-30
Last Modified: 2014-12-30
I have worked this many ways.  I am getting the following errors:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'PDOException' with message 'SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Option) VALUES('02802', 'Color', 'Blue', '')'

PDOStatement->execute(Array) #1 {main} thrown

Data looks  like this:



//open the file
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");
//this is what causes it to skip

//begin looping through the lines
while (($data = fgetcsv($handle,"'","|")) !== FALSE)

// loop all column values and escape special characters
 foreach ($data as $key => $value){
  $data[$key] = $value;

$statement = $conn->prepare('INSERT IGNORE INTO options (ParentSKU, SKU, Choice, Option) VALUES(:ParentSKU, :SKU, :Choice, :Option)');

		$params = array(":ParentSKU" => isset($data[0])?$data[0]:"",
						":SKU" => isset($data[1])?$data[1]:"",
						":Choice" => isset($data[2])?$data[2]:"",
						":Option" => isset($data[3])?$data[3]:"");
echo $data[0]."&nbsp;".$data[1]."&nbsp;".$data[2]."&nbsp;".$data[3]."<BR>";

PDO and prepared statements wouldn't give you this error as the values are not part of the sql.

right syntax to use near 'Option) VALUES('02802', 'Color', 'Blue', '')'

So are you sure the error is not coming from somewhere else?

Thanks for your help Gary!!

Actually, 'Option' is a reserved word and cannot be used.  I changed it to 'Opt' and it worked fine.
