SQLite behaviour changed in Jan 2017

The query still works in SQLiteSpy which was compiled with SQLite 3.13.0 but throws this error in my almost current version of SQLite Expert Personal compiled with SQLite 3.19.3. A Google search on the error message returns this ticket https://www.sqlite.org/src/info/25e335f802dd which reports the issue of SQLite3 behaving differently from PostGres which throws the error. It was pretty quickly changed. However, it may take some noodling to understand how to go about changing the above script so that it won’t throw the error in these later SQLite managers while supporting the intended inclusiveness by using the LEFT JOINs.

  1. The joins in the red section are incorrect and should be:
    FROM citationtable c
    LEFT OUTER JOIN sourcetable s ON c.sourceid=s.sourceid
    LEFT OUTER JOIN eventtable e ON e.eventid=c.ownerid
    LEFT OUTER JOIN familytable fm ON e.ownerid=fm.familyid
    LEFT OUTER JOIN persontable p ON fm.fatherid=p.personid
    LEFT OUTER JOIN nametable n ON p.personid=n.ownerid
    LEFT OUTER JOIN facttypetable f ON e.eventtype=f.facttypeid
    WHERE c.ownertype=2 AND e.ownertype=1 AND f.ownertype=1 AND n.IsPrimary=1

  2. to get the above to run I have changed the hyphen to ‘ but still no joy on the last 3 lines can someone please fix for me. I have also corrected the red text with Pat Jones Reply.

  3. There is some unfortunate style translation going on in WP. A comment line in SQLite is started with double hyphen: “–” (sans quotes). That has been translated into a special character: “—” which would throw an error. I should think that even surrounding the text with single quotes, e.g., ‘comment’ would also be an error. The three lines at the end were all commented out in the original and now are exposed as 1 or 2 statements that are meaningless to SQLite. Delete them or preface them with the comment control, the double hyphen.

  4. Thanks Tom. A similar issue appears to have occurred with ‘Personal’.

    On paste I get a this `Personal with a corresponding reverse `.

    I have tried no single quotes (if they are single quotes) with no success. no such column error message, the same error message as above.
    An ‘ either side returns a green comment.
    Any ideas.

    Regards Wayne b

  5. I think the problem is with the way WordPress is rendering SQLite code combinations such as two hyphens — to denote a comment line and the slash-asterix combos for a multi-line comment /* comments here */.

    I’ll paste the code here with Pat Jones’s correction and see how it turns out. I’m not aware of how one might denote this block of text as code in the Comment editor…
