Trouble shooting SQL

I am experiencing a problem I have no idea how to troubleshoot. The SQL I'm using is:-

SELECT tk.idKeyword, k.keyword, t.name, p.name as path, v.netname, t.thumbnail, t.idThumb
FROM ((((ThumbnailKeyword tk
 INNER JOIN Keyword k ON tk.idKeyword = k.idKeyword) INNER JOIN Thumbnail t ON tk.idThumb = t.idThumb)
  INNER JOIN Path p ON t.idpath = p.idpath)
   INNER JOIN Volume v ON p.idvol = v.idVol)
WHERE k.idKeyword = 151 OR k.idKeyword = 146
ORDER BY t.idPath, t.name

Open in new window


This only returns results for k.idKeyword = 146

However using:-

WHERE k.idKeyword = 151

Open in new window


... returns results. As does

WHERE k.idKeyword = 151 OR k.idKeyword = 147

Open in new window


... or:-

WHERE k.idKeyword = 150 OR k.idKeyword = 146

Open in new window


In fact as far as I can tell any other combination of:-

k.idKeyword = ?? OR k.idKeyword = ??

Open in new window


... works as expected. I'm at a complete loss as to what to look for to troubleshoot this. I would appreciate help on this.

What is the problem. You have said what works. But you have not told what doesn't.

Do you mean:

WHERE k.idKeyword = 151 OR k.idKeyword = 146

returns records for 146 only where as you are expecting some records for 151 as well?

Yes sorry If I wasn't explicit enough.

As I say:-

WHERE k.idKeyword = 151

Open in new window


... returns results

Is this working?

SELECT tk.idKeyword, k.keyword, t.name, p.name as path, v.netname, t.thumbnail, t.idThumb
FROM ((((ThumbnailKeyword tk
 INNER JOIN Keyword k ON tk.idKeyword = k.idKeyword) INNER JOIN Thumbnail t ON tk.idThumb = t.idThumb)
  INNER JOIN Path p ON t.idpath = p.idpath)
   INNER JOIN Volume v ON p.idvol = v.idVol)
WHERE k.idKeyword in ('151', '146')
ORDER BY t.idPath, t.name

Do you mean like:

WHERE k.idKeyword in (151, 146)

cescentman,

I wonder if you could upload your DB to trouble shoot it. Your code seems okay. If I had access to t, I will check on the data type and quality in joining fields and criteria fields.

I think there must have been a problem with the original DB. I went back to the parent app that creates the DB and refreshed the data and now all is OK. Many thanks for your help on this.
