phpMyAdmin newbie question

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm just teaching myself PHP and MySQL. I'm just trying to do a simple conditional:

 

SELECT first_name FROM users WHERE last_name ='Simpsons';

 

but I get this error if there is going to be more than one record returned:

 

#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 '' at line 1

 

I'm using phpMyAdmin 2.7.0-pl2 if this helps.

Hi Maq yes I'm querying in phpMyAdmin, if i want to select and show all records its fine it shows them all, but as soon as I try to narrow it down anything with more than one record comes up with an error.

Hmm, still don't see anything peculiar.  Are you inputting your query exactly like this?

 

SELECT first_name FROM users WHERE last_name ='Simpsons';

 

The error doesn't seem to relate to your query.  Maybe I'm overlooking something, but everything looks valid to me.

Yeah i've inputted exactly that. Everything else I'm working on is fine, just this one thing.

Going to give it a try on my pc at home and see if it works ok on that.

 

Thanks for your help Maq.

 

The only other suggestions is to try doing it through the command line.
