Re: InstantDB: sql syntax problem


George

InstantDB only allows constants in the right hand side of LIKE clauses. So

...WHERE UPPER(prod.name) LIKE "MY_PRODUCT"

would be OK, but general expressions, such as "UPPER (?)", are,
unfortunately, not currently allowed. You can do a case insensitive match
using:

...WHERE UPPER(prod.name) LIKE "?" IGNORE CASE

though.

On a related note, functions, such as UPPER, don't generally appear in
InstantDB's syntax definition. Functions can be added or removed by users as
needed and are loaded by InstantDB at runtime. See
http://instantdb.enhydra.org/software/documentation/user.html for more
details.

Regards

Pete
