join syntax

Recommended Posts

Hey im having trouble with a join, as far as i can figure it should work but i get:
[b]Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\wamp\www\Lib.php on line 206[/b]

this worked fine before i tried to join it so i think that must be the problem

[b]$query = "SELECT news.newsID, news.pictureID, news.dateID, news.name, news.abstract, date.dateID, date.name " .
  "FROM news, date WHERE news.dateID = date.dateID ORDER date.name";[/b]

$result = mysql_query($query, $dbConn);

  //print 2 most recent news articles
  for( $i = 0; $i <2; $i++){
$output .= "\n<tr><td>";
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);
        $news_id = $row['news.newsID'];
$name = $row['news.name'];
$abstract = $row['news.abstract'];
$image_id = $row['news.pictureID'];

any help you can offer would be GGGGGRRREEAT!

Perhaps... also, you should write JOINs using the proper syntax, without using the comma operator.
