DataAssist Pages wizard does not write the correct query code, "ambiguous error".

Sorry to loop back here but I'm still unable to resolve the 'ambiguous' error after the WHERE clause...

1) I've tried inserting "" and " AS id" in place of one or both of the instances where it shows "id" in the relevant WADbSearch code and I still get the same ambiguous "id" in WHERE clause error.

2) I still don't understand where this WHERE clause is coming from or why it is there... I'm not running any search query, just loading the page raw as is. There shouldn't be any values in the search variables and I have no idea where it is getting the values for those variables.

This is the pertinent code I believe:

$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1 = new WA_MySQLi_Search("WADAtbl_homes","");
if (isset($_GET["Search"]) || isset($_GET["Search_x"])) {
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("id"), "d", "id");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"Includes", "join"=>"AND"), array("skunumber"), "s", "skunumber");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"Includes", "join"=>"AND"), array("title"), "s", "title");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("type"), "d", "type");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("category"), "d", "category");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("subcategory"), "d", "subcategory");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("community"), "d", "community");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("featured"), "d", "featured");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("new"), "d", "new");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("pricemin"), "d", "pricemin");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("pricemax"), "d", "pricemax");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("beds"), "d", "beds");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("baths"), "d", "baths");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("garagemin"), "d", "garagemin");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("garagemax"), "d", "garagemax");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>">=", "join"=>"AND"), array("sqft"), "d", "sqft");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"<=", "join"=>"AND"), array("sqft"), "d", "sqft");
$searchWADAtbl_homes_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Edit", "comparison"=>"=", "join"=>"AND"), array("publish"), "d", "publish");
$WADAtbl_homes = new WA_MySQLi_RS("WADAtbl_homes",$framework_connect,1000);
$WADAtbl_homes->setQuery("SELECT, tbl_homes.title, `sl_types`.`title` AS sl_types_title, `sl_categories`.`title` AS sl_categories_title, tbl_homes.sqft, tbl_homes.beds, tbl_homes.baths, tbl_homes.featured, tbl_homes.dateupdate, `sl_publish`.`title` AS sl_publish_title FROM tbl_homes LEFT JOIN sl_types ON = tbl_homes.type LEFT JOIN sl_categories ON = tbl_homes.category LEFT JOIN sl_publish ON = tbl_homes.publish");

As you can see, I've added the table prefixes where appropriate.

This is what is being returned in the browser with the bizzare WHERE stuff...

SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS AS id, tbl_homes.title AS title, `sl_types`.`title` AS sl_types_title, `sl_categories`.`title` AS sl_categories_title, tbl_homes.sqft AS sqft, tbl_homes.beds AS beds, tbl_homes.baths AS baths, tbl_homes.featured AS featured, tbl_homes.dateupdate AS dateupdate, `sl_publish`.`title` AS sl_publish_title FROM tbl_homes LEFT JOIN sl_types ON = tbl_homes.type LEFT JOIN sl_categories ON = tbl_homes.category LEFT JOIN sl_publish ON = tbl_homes.publish WHERE ((`id` = 1) and (`type` = 4) and (`category` = 7) and (`subcategory` = 1) and (`community` = 1) and (`beds` = 1) and (`baths` = 1) and (`garagemin` = 0) and (`garagemax` = 0) and (`publish` = 1)) LIMIT 1000

Column 'id' in where clause is ambiguous

If I remove the search WADA code containing the search arrays, the page displays as expected.
