Bug in Data Assist

I need to use the AND clause to filter a recordset on a data assist results page, however I get this error:

WADACat is an invalid variable name; it does not appear in the SQL

Missing type for variable: WADACat

Hi


Thanks for the Help.

The recordset is in links_Results.php

the SQL I need to add is

And Active = 'Active'

the problem occurs when you have columns in your database that use spaces in the name.

the reson for the problem is in the way that data assist creates recordset variables and the way that Dreamweaver interpretes recordset variable names.

when data assist creates a recorset variable, it uses the WADA<column name> as the variable name. in your case:
WADACat_ID

Dreamweaver writes the code for the variable as:
<variable name>_<recordset name. in your case:
$WADACat_ID_WADAlinks

The problem comes in when you edit the recordset. Dreamweaver interprate's every thing up to the first underscore "_" as the variable name, and after the underscore as the recordset name , or:

WADACat as the variable and:
ID_WADAlinks as the recordset.

the work around is to edit the code.

Find each instance of:
$WADACat_ID_WADAlinks

and change it to:
$WADACatID_WADAlinks

it should be found 3 times.
