SQL Syntax Error At Line 1


Recommended Posts

Hi - I’m getting an error all of a sudden, can somebody point me to the issue please?

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 ‘-1%’’ LIMIT 18446744073709551615’ at line 1

// begin Recordset
$suggestParam__colours = '-1';
if (isset($_GET['suggest1_choice'])) {
  $suggestParam__colours = $_GET['suggest1_choice'];
$query_colours = sprintf("SELECT colour_name FROM colours WHERE colour_name LIKE '%s'", GetSQLValueString($suggestParam__colours . "%", "text"));
$colours = $autocomplete->SelectLimit($query_colours) or die($autocomplete->ErrorMsg());
$totalRows_colours = $colours->RecordCount();
// end Recordset

Don't understand what you are building with that call to sprintf.   Even looking at your query statement without using sprintf  (you know that you don't have to write a statement using sprintf?) the statement doesn't make sense.  What are the two functions you are using doing for you?  What is autocomplete?  SelectLiimit?  Perhaps you could echo out the final sql statement before you run it and show us what your query looks like so we can see what the error message is telling us?
