I want to exclude the first record

I want to exclude the first record

I wish to exclude the first record results from dataAssist - I am trying to use,

"SELECT stockID, title, image, description, price, Dcreated, Dmodified, cat01, cat02, cat03 FROM main LIMIT 1, 2"

But when I add the LIMIT 1, 2 I get the error

"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 'LIMIT 0, 5' at line 1"

Although this works when using the "Test" feature in Dreamweaver (from the Recordset dialogue box) it errors when uploaded. Removing the LIMIT 1,2 code and the page works.

Any work around / other SQL code to exclude the first row from the results?


Many thanks

the error is happening because you most likely have paging in place to return 5 records per page which uses the limit function.

I think the main question to look at is why do you wish to exclude the first record from the results.


is this a specific record that not be returned ever?
if this is the case, wouldn't it be better to just delete the record?
or you could add a WHERE condition to exclude it. If the ID is 1:
WHERE idColumn = 1

Hi Jason

Thanks for the quick reply.

The reason I want to exclude is because it is a gallery of "previous paintings" so one page has the "latest painting" on it - and then there is a link to "Archive paintings" showing every other painting except the latest one. So I want to exclude the latest row from the results - sorry to not be clear - it's ORDER by DATE, so the first record is the latest addition.

I can't use a WHERE, because the Id will change.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks

ok, the best way to accomplish this will be to edit the repeat region code. add a variable to indicate whether to show the record that will be used to hide the first one.


on the page, the repeat region will code will look like this:

php:
<?php do { ?>

<code to display the information from the recordset here>
<?php } while ($row_recordsetName mysql_fetch_assoc($recordsetName)); ?>



you can edit that like this to hide the first record, but show the rest:

php:
<?php $show "no"?>

<?php 
do { ?>
<?php 
if($show == "yes") { ?>
<code to display the information from the recordset here>
<?php ?>
<?php 
if($show == "no"$show "yes"?>
<?php 
} while ($row_recordsetName mysql_fetch_assoc($recordsetName)); ?>
