I have a little problem with escaping table name. I was so stupid that i choose “show” for the name of table. When I use mysqli connection the escaping works fine, but its not working with classical mysql connection. Any advise?
Sorry for my English, I am not native speaker.
SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS year, nameShow FROM `show` LIMIT 0, 10
I get error as
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 'show' at line 2 –
$sQuery = " SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS year, nameShow FROM `show` $sWhere $sOrder $sLimit ";
Section 9.3 of MySQL 5.1 Reference Manual says back ticks (`) or double quotes (“), however, I’d go with Fahim Parkar’s comment above and just rename the table.
Also worth noting, you must use ANSI_QUOTES SQL mode if using double quotes per Section 9.2:
If the ANSI_QUOTES SQL mode is enabled, it is also permissible to
quote identifiers within double quotation marks
The problem is with YEAR not with SHOW. YEAR is a MySQL function.
Best practice is to quote column and tables names all the time, makes things easy to read also.
SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS `year`, `nameShow` FROM `show` LIMIT 0, 10
Backticks should work fine
try putting a comma after SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS,
SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS, year, nameShow FROM `show` LIMIT 0, 10
