  • Hello,

    I made a simple table for testing. The table has 2 columns named A and B. The values are 1 and 2. The data is readable with both column based and row based query.

    I used this statement for reading "SELECT A, B FROM deebee.Test LIMIT 0, 1000 ;"

    How should the update statement look like? Any examples?

    I tried some statements but they did nothing or caused the following alarm "Exception while setting point TestPoint: java.sql.SQLException: Parameter index out of range (1 > number of parameters, which is 0)."


  • Hi,

    the SQL-Update syntax is

    UPDATE tablenname
    SET A=3, B=4
    where A=1

    Hope this helps


  • Yeah, the documentation is a bit lite on the matter. You need a "?" parameter in your statement, where the parameter is value to which the point is being set.

    For example, i created a table thus:

    create table testTable ( c1 int, c2 int);

    ... and added a couple rows:

    insert into testTable (c1, c2) values (1, 10), (2, 11)

    Then, i created a data source with a row-based query:

    select c1, c2 from testTable

    ... and a couple of points with row identifiers "1" and "2". On the second point i added this update statement:

    update testTable set c2=? where c1=2

    Then, when i go to the watchlist and set the point to "20" and then check the table contents, i see that the c2 value for the correct row is "20".

    Hope this helps.

  • Such a small thing but thanks it helped.

    Is '??' used as escape if '?' is needed in the statement? In mysql, I think there should not be such need but just curiosity.


  • After years of using prepared statements in many databases, i have to admin i have no idea. It never came up.
