[SOLVED] SQL Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax
« on: February 24, 2021, 05:26:20 pm »
Hi guys

I got a question which puzzles me...

I got 2 queries one works the other doesn't..


This one WORKS:
Code: SQL  [Select][+][-]
  1. UPDATE `tablename` SET `tablecolumn` = REPLACE(`tablecolumn`, 'ä', 'ä');

This DOESN'T:
Code: SQL  [Select][+][-]
  1. UPDATE `tablename` SET `tablecolumn` = REPLACE(`tablecolumn`, 'ü','ü');

They are both implemented into the same Zeos Conn and Query in the same order as shown above.

However the latter continously gives this error:

SQL Error: 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 'UPDATE `tablename` SET `tablecolumn` = REPLACE(`tablecolumn`, 'ü', ''

If I test them in phpMyAdmin they work perfectly..... and I am aware of double ' around text items  ;)

Any one with an idea why ?`..... All help appreciated in advance



My solution: Splitted each of these UPDATEs into seperate SQL to be executed and they all worked as expected..... perhaps Zvoni suggestion will work as well... this is NOT tested.....

By any chance: It isn't the missing BLANK (Space) after the last comma in the paranthesis?
That's the only difference i see.

I remember doing Queries on a DB2, and DB2 seems to be very picky about correct spacing within Functions.
No idea about MySQL.

And maybe phpMyAdmin is preparsing the statement, so that missing BLANKS are "corrected"

Check the code of character ü. In your code it appears, but not in the error message.
