    Syntax error in FROM clause

    Re: Syntax error in FROM clause

    you are in the wrong Forum, you are using VB6

    since 2010 the number of Tigers are rising again in 2016 - 3900 were counted. with Baby Callas it's 3901, my wife and I had 2-3 months the privilege of raising a Baby Tiger.

    Re: Syntax error in FROM clause

    This is a terrible question for several reasons. Firstly, you have a partial error message in the title and a big wad of unformatted code in the question and nothing else. A good question would start with a full and clear explanation of the problem, which would include a description of what you're trying to achieve, how you're trying to achieve it (including RELEVANT code) and what happens when you try (including error messages AND where they occur). It would then end with a title that summarises that complete explanation. Most importantly though, the error message says that there's an error in the FROM clause of a SQL statement and yet you have posted loads of code that is completely irrelevant as well as numerous SQL statements that contain FROM clauses and with absolutely no indication of which one is the problem. How about you make an effort to help us help you and post JUST the actual SQL statement that causes the error? If you don't know which one that is, debug your code and find out.

    Apart from any of that, if you're going to use .NET then you should use .NET, which means using ADO.NET for data access and not ADODB like you were writing VB6 code.

    Ha! Missed that and just assumed that they were writing VB.NET code like it was VB6. On closer inspection, it definitely looks like VB6 though. That said, the issue is actually a SQL problem and nothing to do with any VB version. The user should have done as I suggested and posted just the relevant SQL code and done so in the Database Development forum.

    Re: Syntax error in FROM clause

    my best guess would be here :
    AdoInventory.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM Inventory WHERE Brand = '" & SearchString1 & "' and Category='" * SearchString2 & "'"
    you put a * instead of a & but it is just a guess...
