I have a simple query that I'm getting an error?

SELECT e.EmpID,  g.PHONE
FROM gnrl g
LEFT JOIN emp e ON (e.EMP_ID = g.EMP_ID)
WHERE g.CAT.G_ID = 1
AND g.ITEM.G_ID = 1
AND e.EMP_ID = 5054;

UNKNOWN COLUMN 'g.CAT.G_ID' IN 'where clause

Check for typo on column name?

Remove the WHERE CLAUSE to start with or do a separate query

SELECT  * from gnrl

Open in new window


To check on the column names.

It isn't a typo.


Create Table

CREATE TABLE `gnrl` (
  `GNRL_ID` mediumint(8) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `EMP_ID` mediumint(8) NOT NULL,
  `CAT.G_ID` mediumint(8) NOT NULL,
  `ITEM.G_ID` mediumint(8) NOT NULL,
  `PHONE` varchar(50) DEFAULT NULL,
  `EMAIL` varchar(50) DEFAULT NULL,
  `GNAME` varchar(50) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`GNRL_ID`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=6 DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1

Because the column names have periods in them, wrap them with backticks in your query. If it's a table you've only just created, consider renaming the columns.

SELECT e.EmpID,  g.PHONE
FROM gnrl g
LEFT JOIN emp e ON (e.EMP_ID = g.EMP_ID)
WHERE g.`CAT.G_ID` = 1
AND g.`ITEM.G_ID` = 1
AND e.EMP_ID = 5054;

No change

SELECT e.EmpID, g.PHONE
FROM gnrl g
LEFT JOIN emp e ON (e.EMP_ID = g.EMP_ID)
WHERE `g.CAT.G_ID` = 1
AND `g.ITEM.G_ID` = 1
AND e.EMP_ID = 5054;

Unknown column 'g.CAT.G_ID' in 'where clause'

No points please ... Simon gave you the right answer.

You didn't put your backticks where Simon said to.

WHERE g.`CAT.G_ID` = 1
is not
WHERE `g.CAT.G_ID` = 1

I tried it in phpmyadmin.

It works for me like this:
SELECT e.EmpID, g.PHONE
FROM gnrl g
LEFT JOIN emp e ON (e.EmpID = g.EMP_ID)
WHERE g.`CAT.G_ID` = 1 and g.EMP_ID=1 and g.`ITEM.G_ID`=1
